Going to lift carpets next see if floor is hiding any rot , I'll make my mind up after that whether to proceed, both rear inner arches/ sills have gone /spare wheel well needs a repair and lower quarter plus a patch on boot, all brake pipes/ flexys are perished / corroded too so it's starting to grow arms n legs a full resto wasnt the plan !!!

Ouch ! Well if its any consolation, I bought a whole new rear end to attempt the restoration on my red 80 Sport , spent a fortune on welding on the rear end, the inner front wings had similar problems too and the engine was fu**ed as well so had to source another DX engine......in the end I just had to give up as I was running out of 's
I'd have expected the brake lines/pipes and maybe fuel lines as well.....you've done a hell of a lot better than I did as at least you have achieved a car with a running engine so far, and very quickly too.....
