I’m not sure about all of you out there, but when I found the rust in my sprinter shell spiralling out of control, I didn’t think of ways to fix it, I just started looking for mint condition chassis’ for sale to avoid the hassle.
Some of you may be confused as to why I’ve chosen this picture as the thumbnail for this story, but anyone who knows just how difficult this kind of metal work is will certainly be in awe.
Maybe it’s the old Japanese way of struggling constantly to overcome adversity but this is just mental. The amount of damage and rust on this shell would be ‘give up now’ material to anyone else, but somehow through some very bespoke methods and superior workmanship, this little AE86 lives again!
