new family member/project



so the other day when i was supposed to be working i went and bought this 1973 2002 basket case. fresh paint, its a cowboy job but it will do.... for now until i get the car put back together and running.

most of the parts are there much of it new in the box but a few parts are damaged/non functioning. break callipers, mid-pipes and muffler all rusted beyond repair.

all i have done so far is clean it and begin to inventory and organize all the parts. its going to be quite the task but i cant wait to breathe life back into this car

any advice/thoughts/input is appreciated

Congrats (I think). Second from the bottom pic, that looks like a dodgy repair on the wheel well (which is the shock tower in the trunk) Are you good at rust repair? Will need to grind that off and see what's going on there. You don't want your shock tower to fail...

i have gone over it pretty closely, the shock tower is not as bad as it looks but there are a couple holes that will have to be repaired on that panel under the back seat. i might cut the shock tower out and weld in new steel to be safe anyway on the scale of this project i believe it to be minor. it was stored in a garage and other then that the chassis looks to be very solid

some cutting and welding doesnt scare me one bit im hoping to get to the small amount of rust repair this summer. then tackle the suspension and breaks (lines and calipers are pretty rotten) then the driveline hopefully have it in running condition for next summer

shock towers appear to be ok but the rear subframe mount on the drivers side is too far gone for my liking and will have to be redone

actually did get some time to start on the rust repair last weekend finally lol

lol well that wasnt a rotten subframe i was way off.

the rear floorpan on that corner was rotten out right where it meets the front of the rear wheel well.

I have not made as much time to work on this project as I would have hoped at this point but its coming along slowly
