  5. it is mate ive got a rust free glanza door in silver to pick up this week just dampened spirits with the rotten sills near arches prob added 500 quid to build , its booked in to have the surface rust cleaned off the underside then rust converter followed by zinc primer then underseal at a specialist they will also be cutting arches and re welding them i took my celica there il attach some pics im going balls out with the starlet saved up 5 years for this my mrs thinks im bonkers but understands shes fond of the car aswell she drives a yaris SR but hates the celica
  6. Thanks for the kind words you set the bar for SR's to be fair cracking idea with the backbox aswell gutted about the rust near the sills amazed as rest of the car is really clean for 22 years old
  7. Has anyone else had issues with corossion? remember it's got 155k on and has been used daily except last few years she's not been sat in a heated garage, side the rust is on
  8. Looks like I've found a bit of rot to the rear of the sill near the jacking point it's pretty soft wel see how bad it is at mot time as could be some more areas I can't get to aswell feeling a little nervous now fingers crossed its not rotten all underneath I can't really see anything else other than surface rust , I'm aware it had some rust on the rear arches anyway worse case il have to have it patched then when it goes to the bodyshop il have it repaired properly with a complete sill if you can buy them I'm only doing this once so it's got to be right as it's getting garaged after and used only on sunny days I'm expecting to plough at least 3k into this project on bodywork undersealing and paint etc must be mad be cheaper to buy a silver 3 door and and swap bits but then it wouldnt my Sr would it? I'm attached to the little thing after all these years
