Cybertruck body is 301 stainless & 40k! enemies wont hear it :)

Clearly what was communicated by the previous muppet was wrong
however for a 1200 wagon, most only see worse rust than what you
are showing so far here. In fact "most" 1200s have worse.

Straightening all the body will be the single most consuming
part of the costs vs the little patching and welding.

As a restomod, prob consider a brighter shade with a period interior.
It is easier to see in bad weather and in general motoring most will
be able to spot it better than darker shades.

POR 15 WhiteCote is the toughest paint Ive come across, couldnt scratch it
with keys at all could only barely put a cut using a new box cutting blade.

Good luck, work done looks good.

Im actually looking forward to next week , when the cutting starts .
The front passenger sill will be cut out to reach the hole in the upper firewall and to cut the side . Water naturally travels down and so does the rust , leaving its mark from top to bottom . Most likely the dash needs to be removed . In the engine bay between the shock / strut and firewall top corner is a hole the size of your fist. It goes straight through and also goes down the pillar to the bottom sill both sides. Besides a hole in each quarter of the the floor , the rear shelf from the wheel arch to the rear is rusted of on right side. I havent been able to find a replacement part as they only supply ute tray patches. The channel are different. The top of the rear window lip will be cut out and a new piece made and welded back in. and the rear sill too. There will be about a dozen patches done

More bad news today
Was called down to discuss the floor, its worse than thought. Seems someone
decided to pop rivet pieces in the floor . After closer inspection , entire floor needs to be replaced.
On a lighter brighter note. Engine bay epoxied
