well here are the pics of my old celica that i got back. Now i know why i sold it in the first place lol.n Here are the pics of the bad rust. Luckily the frame rails are still solid passenger side floor board is rusted out so are both rockers. one small hole on the driver side floor board. One small one in the trunk. Fenders are pretty much shot. Glass still good. weather srtiping ehh needs replacing front bumper has a little dent and surface rust. Good news is. I should be getting my floor board in the next week or so. Rockers i should be getting in 2 weeks for both sides. Ill post pics when that comes in. whooo man lots of work. itll be worth it. Rear valance is also pretty rusted. Luckliy there is a 1971 celica in a junk yeard 2hrs away that is still in has the rear valance in good condition. So ill be cutting that one off and welding it in on mine. Wish me luck!

Haha yeah its a pile all right. But luckily they are panels that can be replaced and nothing much of structure. Frame is still solid and so is the front end. Worst is floor and rockers. getting that rear valance on the weekend. poor 81 is going back to stock with just a manual swap that ill be doing,. And get a macco paint job for it. Ill be putting all my efforts on the 71. If people that are into muscle cars fix worse things like this, i cant see why an import can get the same fix!

I do! It's so late 70s/early 80s. It fits the car perfectly!
