Near the rear windscreen it was full of rust, i could slide my hand through the body i gave that piece of work to my panel beater infact you can see that the paraqua (i don't know what you call it) were the water slides from the roof it is full of primer and zinch spray now looks slightly better

I think the car was involved in an accident, the front axel was bend also when i removed the body i noticed that the frame head was all cracked (see pic)


when i drove the car it used to have loads of play and couldn't keep the car moving straight at first i thought it was the steering box, and when i press the brake pedal..oh god..the car had a mind of its own!!..it was that crack near the fuel line that was the problem..
