I'm a bit over half way through the tear down and I have been pleased with the state of the body so far. I've only seen surface rust in a few of the regular spots which is extremely encouraging considering this car has been in Alberta most of its life. It was originally bought by a Japanese guy who lived in Banff. Once I have everything apart the blasting and repainting components and body rust repair begins. Here's how she looks as of today:

Got the new ones waiting :mrgreen:


Engine will be out soon and exhaust, fuel tank, and rear beam will follow. Once the engine is gone I will need to find a suitable 9A and rebuild it. Also the rear drums need to be swapped out. Has anyone on here used mk4 rear calipers on the mk2 before?
