Depends how deep your pockets are, unfortunately mk1s are good at hiding rust so the deeper you delve the more youll find.

Hi Nick. If you are seeking originality and economy then perhaps consider stalling the patina with something like Dinitrol and just dealing with the unacceptables. You will still get as much interest, but from less investment. Would love to know a little more about this car. I've got a GTE but the SR is much rarer and it will be interesting to see where values go in the next few years...

From what I have been told about your car I think it would be wise to do a full resto.
