So I bought a TR7 of ebay recently without viewing beforehand (yeah I know bad idea) as it had an mot and supposedly only needed the carbs doing (not an issue as the engine was being swapped)

well there has been some progress made on it today but some shocking discoveries on it that may have put me off it, though these issues will be rectified

Starting with the underside... a lot of rust, some fibreglass and underseal

Then we come to the worst part, the strut tower... the red outline is where it should be connected to the body but isn’t...

one good thing though, my dad had some other wheels lying around that was put on to see how it looks and think it suits it well compared to the wheels that came with it
