The seats, doors, fenders, windshield, bumpers, dash, ect. have all been removed from the car. Only thing left is to remove the engine and transmission.

Both doors hinges where they bolt to the body were rusted through from that evil stuff called water.
The floorboards had surface rust but were still solid. I found this out after I pulled the 'fall apart in your hands, rotted carpet' out and scraped all the black waterproofing someone tried to pant on it to seal it all up.
Note the wiring harness hanging down on the passenger side shot.. it also crumbled when pressed hard.. more rot.
The inside of both doors and floors, although carrying some surface rust were solid. Windows, door handles, ect. all removed. Transmission tunnel solid.
The seats and material still in good shape.
The back hump and 'boot' flooring were all solid except for one spot in 'boot' floor where the bracket from the exhaust mounts to, it was just a hole in the floor.
