Oh man, looks like you have your work cut out for you. But it seems the trees hit where the car is strongest, and a clean car like that must be saved.
Got any pictures with less tree in them? Good luck on the restoration.

This happen a almost year ago, there was major winter storm in Boxing Day.
It affected all south and western finland.
I was without electricity for ten days.

Car is now in much better shape.
I have pictures in my camera, but need to upload them to net.

If there was lucky in unlucky situation i think this was one of those.
Like someone early said that timber hit were car is strongest.
Photos look quite bad, but now when all damages are checked and listed, there is quite few thing to fix.
Parts need to replace are:
Real window
Chrome decoration trim to window rubber.
Body panel or C-pilar it´s called
Chrome decoration in front of air vents
paint of course, in half of car

Could some give me a clue where to look for that chrome trim for window rubber?
Rest of parts i have, but trim what i have is so faded and cracked, even it´s not really damaged.

I also fixed few rust holes in back of car, but those were so small for almost 40 y.o toyota

Here is about one week old shot.
Body is back in shape again.
Just a little more grinding and it is ready for plastic filler.

Chrome trim is available here... but its not as good as the original one... but will serve the purpose..
Where do you live in Finland.. I can send it to Oulu.. my cousin lives there, currently he is on vacation here.. he will return on January 16th..

Does it have correct shape cross-section ?
I have looked from Ebay, there is many types available in Hong Kong but it does not really show if shape is correct.
