Hey Everybody

So yesterday i went and checked out some 2002ti that had some

huge turbo and was raced in the 70s. Must have kicked butt

because the trubo was the size of my head. Well I kinda know the

guy and he wants to part i out becasue he hasnt hjad to much luck

with it. the deal we made is that if i get it, the whole driveterain

will be out since i will be using it for the m20. Well the car has a

bunch of potential. It has some 3pc BBS wheels, turbo flares and

spoiler, the whole engine compartment is custom cut out and has

no heter box and just has pleanty of room (perfect for the m20,

fiberglass hood and trunk, a roll cage, some custom suspension

that is super stiff, rear sachs shock that are adjustable,Looks like

it has a turbo gauge cluster,and it has bunch of custom stuff.

Well the car has rust in the rocker panels. I want to know if it is

going to be expensive and hard to fix that or is it not too big of a

deal. Even the guy said they proabbly should be replaced. What

do you guys think?? The car is a project that needs work but I am

starting to really tink about getting it but am not sure about the

RUST issue.

Thanks

90% OF IT IS BELOW THE SURFACE !

THE GOLDEN DUCK HAD WHAT I THOUGHT WAS MINOR

ROCKER RUST .

AS I WAS WIREBRUSHING THINGS IN THAT AREA ,

THE HOLES KEPT ON GROWING . POR-15 WONT CURE THIS !

I ENDED UP CUTTING THE OLD ROCKERS OFF AND SCOOPING

HANDFULLS OF RUST & TRASH OUT OF THEM !

FORTUNATELY , THE CANCER WAS LIMITED TO THE OUTER PANELS .

ON THE BRIGHTER SIDE , I WELDED IN CABROLET TYPE

REINFORCEMENTS BEFORE IT WAS PUT BACK TOGETHER .

I DID NUMEROUS LITTLE THINGS TO STIFFEN IT UP

WHILE IT WAS APART .

You don't want to skimp on the structure of the car, especially if you are going to modify it.

patrol car waiting for duty !

buy it as a complete botched up package - not a 'drive-trainless roller - you'll never see it run again.

rockers are your frame mate!

no rockers - you'll fold in half - bumm draggin and leaving s___d marks on the tarmac.

gudday !

of because he towed it all the way from SLO or so to San Jose and

did it the chep way with front tie on the ground and the tire blew

and so did half of the flare, But all of it is factory stuff that came

with the car( as he says) Its is a straight up Race car though. I

really am starting to want it more but Im scared of the rust

Thanks

either way. It needs all new fuel lines and hoses and probably a

full engine rerbuild. and the car is not streetable it proabbly idled

at about 5000 rmp and with the clutch it is either a go or stop

option nothing in the middle. And i have no point for the engine,

im doin M20.

Thanks
