How's it going fellow JNC'ers, here is a picture trail of my 1969 Toyota Corona that I purchased off this site earlier this year. The car had been sitting in a junkyard for atleast 20 years before I picked her up.

I have a bunch of pictures of all the progress but for now here are a few before and after pics.
I will update as time allows.

i rolled my fenders using the old metal pipe method; took about 2 minutes to do.

i cut just about 2 full coils off the front. im thinking of cutting atleast half a coil more.

Glad you were able to get her before they scrapped her. She has cleaned up well. Are there any other plans for her?

Thanks UtahSleeper, It has been a lot of hard work. I plan on doing a few more mods in the near future. Next year I will be doing an engine, trans, rear-end and brakes swap.
