    Thank you , Monday I will ring Toyota and ask
    Just needs a patch or two , got 199,000 miles on the clock starts and runs , stopping is ok if you got a brick garage in front when you need to stop , lucky for me someone built one where I needed it, but really excited to have this in the shed,

    Hi BM and Welcome. @Bund has recently had his short wheelbase restored with fairly similar rust issues, maybe he knows where to get panels.

    Great to see some photos of the ol’ gal.:thumbup: Be good seeing this one take shape. I love the round headlight 70s.

    Bund’s thread here. If you’ve not seen it it should give you some inspiration.

    That’s looking good BM.

    Have you thought about a 1kz-t engine swap instead of rebuilding the 2.4 which is known to be a bit, how shall I say, sluggish?
