When you purchased the car did you know there was this much rust and or repairs required?
Did the inspection sheet point out any of these issues or was that not a concern at the time.
Your body shop is or has done a great job in repairing the damaged areas, good to see the car saved.

Thanks guys!!! Actually when I got the car it looks amazing to the naked eye. Only very few places that looked like they needed help. Whoever did the restoration did a very good job of doing a bad job. The car was literally edge to edge 1/4 thick bondo! On every panel besides the roof.

Hi mate

Excellent work by the way.

I' e been keeping an eye on these for a while with a view to buying a project but I got distracted by an E10 BMW, which I still haven't started!

I'd love to know, if it's not too rude, how much your car was. The car looked very good to the untrained eye!

I'm looking at these again and may raise the money by selling my hobby cars to fund if I can get one within budget

Keep up the good work too!

Wow, thats insane. I saw a bunch of cars like that during my search with the multi layered paint that pretty much masks anything below. Unfortunately, this type of repair seems to be the norm here.

Others in the market might have to start asking whoever is inspecting a car in Japan to carry a paint thickness gauge and magnets to check all the panels.

That is some great work recreating all the sheetmetal. :tu:

If ever there was a photograph worth the supposed 1000 words, this would be it. The work following it though is equally impressive, and great to follow. Looking forward to seeing the results come together... Neko.

I have two brand new badges if you want to replace them instead of fixing up the old ones. :)

Do they cut the fenders on all these cars to get that look? Or did some of the cars come from the factory already done?

Wow. Good job in finding a good restorer.

The entire 3rd page basically sums up why I don't like bondo. Bare in mind that some people have been known to mix metal shavings into bondo to pass the "magnet test".


Hope it goes alot better now that you have most of the body work being fixed.
