Well after 6+ hours on the road and just 7 miles from Canada I got her home.
Got the slime pressure washed off and what we have is:
Nice plastics all the way around inside kick panels too, straight body,good floors, good seat frames,good light lenses, good exterior window trim.
Con's: needs windshield, door and hatch weather striping are toast, drivers seat foam is bad (all need upholstered) , rust bubbles and a couple holes at the very back edge of hatchback, .......
the one thing that looks like a lot of work is the rusted out battery box, but more importantly the frame beam under it, from the motor mount forward to the bumper is nearly rusted away 1/2 of it anyway.
It IS a re-paint from what I see as the firewall is a dark green, but at some point in history someone removed the front clip all the interior and glass and painted it the "Lime green" had new carpet w/padding and was obviously a ride someone was proud of but..... carpet is trashed up front, and the paint is failing all around SOooooooo...........
anyone have a website link I can check vin for color and orig equipment it came with?
I like the green but in a re-paint I think I will go with an alike color with HEAVY flake, and since I'm a fan of the grandma style green-on-green I'll do a dark green upholstery and carpet, but this is going to be a winter/nickle-dime project, guess I should start with that section of frame and the hatch rust.
I am going to need a complete engine gasket kit.... are those available anywhere? also windshields?
will get ya some updated pics here in a bit.
