In that pic it doesn't. It's riddled with rust and peppered with hail damage. Not one panel or chrome bit is fine.
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

Just bought this as the new donor car :D

Little old lady owner, too old to drive and not allowed to anymore. 94,000 genuine km. Full history file. Seat covers and dash covers have been on since the car was new.

I hope answering the door and seeing you didnt scare her too much... You probably got it from relatives but If you bought it directly from her I could see you changing light globes or doing something in the house for her before you left.  :thumbsup:

Looks mint, why use it as a donor?

 +1 why hack this up?

I did a lil project like this for my first car, got the project car first the body condition was OK then came a donor car where the body condition was mint, perfecto - save a small dimple in a door. Persisted with the initial project shell as I'd already invested time and money into it, looking back - I would've gone with the donor car in a heartbeat.
