Update, the doors were the next on line, the door apart from the skin where there was a thick layer of bondo, there was only rust on the top and the bottom of the door. Apart from that the door was fine.

Image
Image

The top of the door was replaced, since the chrome trim holding clip caused this part to rust badly. And of course the water seeping from the rubber which rubs on the door glass.

Image
Image

The lower part of the door was also replaced, this part rusted due to the common problem of water getting trapped in this area.

Regards
Raj

Hi cruiser72 thanks, this is my first car i bought when I was 21 years old, and bought it with the savings I had when I got my first proper job after my college. So it deserves a proper make over, I didn't cut any corners in this restoration.

Regards
Raj

A little bit more work was carried out with the door section, front crossmember and the front chassis.

Image

A small rust spot, cut, welded and shut with some fresh metal.

Image
Image

The front fenders on both side had it's wheel arch re-beaten to the correct shape, as previously it had too much body filler and lost it arch line.

Image

The front chassis was rusted quite badly, so that was repaired, shiny! if you guys want to see the level of damage on the chassis, you guys can check it out in the first post of this thread.

Image
Image

As you guys would have seen in few early posts you would have noticed my front crossmember was rotten away badly, so here is the newly fabricated front crossmember.

The guys at the bodyshop have put in some great deal of work here, and it really starts to show it's details now. The car is looking more better now.

Regards
Raj

Hi folks, next in order is the fabrication of the custom front chin spoiler, it's of course replica of the original Toyota ones. I actually wanted to get those fibreglass ones, but my bodyshop buddy advised me the other way, since the car will be road used, if the front spoiler get damaged it can still be repaired since it's made out of metal.

Image

Measured....

Image
Image

Metal panels cut, shaped and fitted....

Image

And then welded and grind

Regards
Raj

Hi guys, got the front chin spoiler done and the engine bay fully sorted out.

Image

Actually the front chin spoiler was altered a little bit more from what is shown here in the picture, but I didn't manage to snap that photo.

Image

I loved how clean the engine bay was after the paint was removed, the part of my car where least rust was.

That's it for now, will update soon.

Regards
Raj

Finally all the cutting, fitting, replacing, welding and rust repair is done. Now it's the next stage of preparing the body for painting.

Image

Yep that guy is tiny isn't he

Image
Image

There is quite substantial amount of dings on the hood and right side fender so bondo going to be the aid here.

Image
Image

Shiny! 8)

Hello Raj


I see that the restoration is going well. The vehicle will be beautiful.

By the way, I wonder if you have the owner's manual, because I would get one.

Have, or know of any colleague who may have?

Regards
Paulo

Hi Paulo, yep the bodyshop handling my car does a very professional job, by the way I don't have a owner's manual, I just bought the Brooklands Book Toyota Celica 1600 workshop manual. I ask around and see if my friends have it and let you know. Cheers.
