That white dash is interesting, I think it looks ok.

What is the bog roll for? Is that when you take a friend for a hair raising drive and scare the crap out of them Biggrin

Well the car does not look all that bad, at least visually. For some reason, I was expecting to see much worse. I kind of like the black and white theme of the car except for the rims. That's a bit too much. The right tires and rims will change the whole personality of the car. So what is the plan of attack for your 40 year crisis?

Judging from little clues, I'm going to guess that we are dealing with a non-U.S. car that is located in tropical weather and/or near the sea.

Here's hoping that there are not many nasty surprises under the repaint.

The bog roll may come in handy otherwise.

Here's hoping for the best as the tear down continues.

Good luck with your adventure
I have never seen a package tray area that rotted. Was the car sitting without a rear window?
I have several parts cars I can cut the package tray area out of
