This is to all the members telling Jacob he is making a mistake with this car: -Everyone knows it is cheaper & easier the better the car is to begin with, but he only had a few hundred dollars to get started. -He wants help in how to fix things, not to be told he is foolish to try. -Not every resto has to be show quality -My Skylark is less rusty than Jacob's but has no interior (I only paid $400). I tried saving for a hobby car for 20 years but the money was allways needed elsewhere. Now when I have a few bucks I can throw them into the project, so now instead of wishing I could be invlved in the car hobby I am. -It takes more skill to reserect a clunker than buy a good one! -You learn very little by buying a vehicle someone else has restored as opposed to working on your own. -Proper use of rust inhibiting paint, fibreglass & filler can repair some damaged areas cheaply (ya, ya I know what some will say, but we're doing a budget daily driver). My point is that we should encouage this bright young lad instead of telling him to give up because of a little rust.
