    Repainted some of it, it'll do.
    I also replaced the door pins and bushings, what a great cheap fix.
    I gotta get this thing back together.

    glad to see you've managed to fix it nicely

    same reason I passed on it - I don't want to have to repair before my build , just do the build it's self

    we're dealing with such low number cars, built with thin metal. we're out of options for clean cars these days I think.
    Gone are the days of getting a cheap driver tossing in the ES/turbo bits and ripping around.

    you looked at this? and you didnt warn your fellow TM'ers!

    I started working on this again, Ive got 2 holes at the tops of the wheel wells to fix then reassembly. I had trouble shaping the metal so I gave up last year, should of just paid someone to do it. putting it back together is a cake walk for me. the body work drains my soul.

    Re: 1988 Lancer Shelby

    lol
    I have a shortcut when first looking at these little mopars
    I look at the backs of the front wheel wells where the plastic shield and the seam in the firewall meet

    if it's rusty there I start thinking "parts car" .. 'cause that's the ONLY reason I'd want to bother with it now
    yeah I USED to fix rusty stuff .. but with age come a certain lack of time for grinding rust off and welding metal back where it used to be

    << no rusty in the wheel wells
    so I looked at the rockers and pans
    no rust
    so I looked at the trunk and it's crossmembers
    no rust
    door bottoms
    no rust
    rest of car..
    no rust

    I buy.. for half asking , after sitting on add for three years
