    I also kind of never want to have to deal with rust again though, so there's that then...

    Awesome job.

    Hey thanks guys for the complements. As far as color schemes I have always wanted a blue TA22. I really like the OEM orion Turquoise metallic with the oem ST stripes.

    I found an add on the local Kijiji for a 2003 wrx turbo for a good deal. So my daughter and I went for the 2 hour drive to pick it up. We got to the guys house and it was so cool he had like 6-8 nice sports car parked on his drive way (multipul wrx's, an Evo, a Carlos sans celica etc) all in nice condition. I guess he is kind of a car collector. He showed me the turbo it was mint and no shaft pay. He also had the down pipe which I intend on using for the flange and welding a new down pipe to. I asked if he had an intercooler and he took me to his back yard garage which was full of cool car parts he pulled out a front mount evo intercooler. I purchased the parts and took my daughter for supper at Half Moon a really cool 1950's-1960's themed restaurant for supper at 9pm

    I know these motors are not worth much but having a spare motor and curiosity of what the motor will make with a turbo on it has got me excited.

    My daughter came to hang out with me in the garage the other day:

    So the last section of rust repair underneath the car:

    And the patch work begins:

    At this point I remembered that I had ordered some cut out parts off a 1974 celica from a member on and realized I could probably make something work. So I trimmed up this section of the 1974 floor that I had

    Started some real life "photo shop" Took the measurements and cut out the old floor:

    Then the 1974 piece got welded in place:

    at this point with 1972, 1973, and 1974 celica parts welded into the car I was reminded of this song:

    got the inner rocker mounted up as well and was able to reuse the seat belt mounting bracket. The seat belt fits nicely too:

    The middle of the rear floor pan is rusted through and needed to be fabricated due to a leaky window and standing water:

    Time to disassemble for sand blasting the floors:

    Test fitting rocker panels they are going to need a little tweaking:
