rain tray that was cut out. thats the only bit of rust i have on the entire car.
Various other pieces ive gathered (thanks Derek)
Bad fender gone!
New fender on!
There's actually a short story to that fender. Spent the day junkyard crawling and found a pretty rusted out cabby. That fender was the only piece that wasnt rusted out... so took it off and went to pay. The guy at the counter spoke almost no english and wanted 25euro. I asked him if he took cards, he said yeah, but then asked if i had USD which i did, and he said $15. Quickly gave him a $20 he handed me back 5euro, asked if that was ok. I said yup! and quickly walked out. He obviously screwed up on his exchange rate math.
Currently on the way are:
Dual Weber 45mm DCOE
new black carpet interior
new door cards
I hope to have the car running in the next 2-3 weeks before it begins to snow.
