So me and my shop guys were able to get it the engine to turn over and I am so so so happy. Now I don't need a new engine, probably just needs a tune up kit on it.

Now below is my google gallery.
Now I know there is quite a bit of rust, and thats okay, Im just tired of heading discouragement from non believers!

since the 1.8 L engine runs, I wont be EJ20 swapping it, I am going to be keeping it original.
but hey here is the videos of me getting it to run with my shop guys and the gallery

You will probably need the inner long, outer long, inner wheelhouse, rear floor pans, and inner suspension console. That should get you started. What you see is about 20% of the rust. Not trying to bash you, its just experience with these cars.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) Plus some fabrication of parts not readily available or try to get the whole chunk of what you need from a donor. I was able to patch my inner long but it was a lot of work.

Take heart, your car looks to be in similar condition as mine when I finally dove in for the resto. Thirty years of discouragement from nonbelievers is probably what saved my car. Spite can be a great motivator (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

That spot repaired before the jack point went back on.

And here's a recent pic taken about 18 months later

You can check out my build thread to see how a clueless idiot tackled a project of this size, or check out Jeff Hail's Bring Out Your Dead thread in the rebuild forum to learn from someone who knows what they are doing. Also, read through the various build threads from @cary . He provides lots of detail of repairs that are a treasure trove to learn from.

Congrats on getting the engine running.

Good luck and keep posting your progress! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)
