making slow progress still, which is better than none.

Interior is completely gutted now. Removed the front and rear windscreens. Salvaged the rear window, but cracked the front while removing.

Found some rust that's been poorly repaired in front of the wheel houses. Picture doesn't show it, but this is rusted into the inner rocker panel. The patch was just bogged over the hole, not even welded. This obviously indicates a bigger issue on the inner rocker panels.

Wheel tub rust isn't a concern as I'll be mini-tubbing the car

The rear windscreen frame is rusted through in one section, looks like I can buy a full replacement for that panel which will be easier than patching.

Removing the carpet, I found these creases on the firewall. Is this a common panel stamping imperfection or is this something that may have happened in the crash?
