Putting the feeler out as the car comes closer to completion. Not much left to do now for the car to be 100% complete. It is just easier to go through my restoration thread than to detail every improvement made on the vehicle, but needless to say, it is a very nice car.
It's basecoat, tinted clear, and clear coated X2. (factory style tricoat) It's a very good match to the jambs with no nasty overspray.
Tom, (As I''m getting an earful from my spouse about all the other projects that need to be completed) Yes, I've got a gas mig, although I'd suggest doing yours like mine with 3m panel bond. It's a better way to avoid the potential rust at the welded joint. It's expensive at $100/tube (I think) but it's just about the only way to never reintroduce rust to a patched panel.
We can do it when the weather turns.

Very nice rebuild, its like buying a vs brand new. the only problem is that its hard to get what you put in (time and money), in the end its still a 20 year old car for 5500. have you thought about driving it for a while then selling?
in many areas in America, there are 1st gen prius's that sell for about 5500 with 100k, after bargaining. good luck with the sale
