      It looks pretty good! Did you buy it in the US?
      That is the 1980 American Rabbit front end.

      DON'T BE FOOL BY THE LOVELY PAINT, TO MY SUPRISE THE RABBIT WAS NOT IMPECCABLE AS I THOUGHT. I FOUND THAT THE INNER FENDER LEFT SIDE WAS NOT THERE AND THAT ALL OF THE FLOOR SECTIONS WERE NO LONGER ATTACHE TO THE ROCKER PANNEL.

      Tabarnouche... as-tu vu la mienne? La meme rouille, peut-etre meme un petit peu plus, mais j'y vais au ralenti...

      Penses-tu faire du 'sandblast' apres tout avoir réparé? Pleine de questions... Vas-y, continue!

      It looks like a solid car. Nice work too.

      I noticed some rust behind the door where it meets the fender. This is from the rain off the drip rails, I see you fixed it in a later pic and primered it. I would cost that corner with some Resin, and also put some foundation coating or other oil based sealer, this will prevent the little river that flows from causing rust again.

      I had the same problem only about 5 X as bad.
