although I'm guessing the guy that put the SR in, the guy that defiled it, and the guy that sold it are 3 different previous owners

Started tackling the body work... FML...



Needs a lot of filler work but it's getting there. At least I know now that there wasn't major damage, just some idiot trying to mold the body to the cheap body kit and delete the rear side markers...





Also, decided to spray some rust reformer on the spare tire area.




And dyed my rear hatch carpets... With 99cent flat black. I've used the "vinyl and carpet" paint. It's crap and leaves the carpet crusty. Could be the clear coat in it. Either way, go with the 99 cent flat black paint. Looks brand new

Cause 99 cents..

And looks really good. Why would a washateria be an option? Saying throw that in gigantic washer? Lol.

It had big rust spots from I assume parts going on the carpet. I cleaned it thoroughlu before spraying.

If it will fit in a regular size washer than use that. But sometimes that dye will stain the washer so ruin someone elses not yours.

Plus your carpet will look new. Without being crunchy

It's suprisingly not crunchy at all. The "vinyl carpet" spray made my last one crunchy feeling.

I wanted it to be jet black too. The original color was a dirty grey. Overall I'm very happy with it. I suggest more people do it. Cheap, easy and makes our cars look a lot better.

I also sprayed all the side panels in the hatch. Those have cardboard backing. Couldn't clean them down very well. They were the same rusty grey gross-ness. It's all uniform jet black now.

body work looks good.
the little stuff like this takes way more time and detail to make it look good.

Forsure. I'm not looking for perfection by any means with this car. The front end frame damage confirmed that for me. Plan is to make it nice, up to my standards, and drive the hell out of it. Won't be a show car.

Frame damage at what point could a tube frame repair/ replace the affected area?

That's an option... But not in the near future. When this becomes a designated track car I may consider that. Right now it's just a car I use to go get a beer when my wife is at work and I don't wanna guzzle gas in my work truck.

I could probably also put it on a frame rack for roughly $500-1000 dollars. But that's certaintly not in the budget. That would be a third of my entire build cost as of now.

Couple sets of washers and new holes have aligned the front end pretty well.
