BEFORE

This is what my car looked like when I bought it. Stunning from ten feet away. However, the shiny paint job wasn't so good close-up  and within a few months of bringing it to the UK I started to notice bubbling on the lower door skins. 

 

The car was stripped down to a bare shell and media blasted to reveal extensive corrosion in the floors, sills, A pillars, lower wings and doors. There were botched repair sections in the lower wings and inner sills, and a lot of filler. The floor pans were rusted through, despite the factory underseal being largely intact.
