The "Mucca" disassembling and restoration

Recently I started to disassemble my 1986 950 TL (a Savane, as it was called in France) to start a body and chassis restoration.
I started taking off every piece I could to take it as light as possible to the body shop, as I'm not able to repair rust and paint by myself.

I'm planning to change colour to a dark blue (I was looking at blue Versailles 417, anybody here has some examples?) And install the famous twingo sunroof.
The body without all the wings looks way better than I thought, with the only real compromised spots on the rear fenders, more on the left side.

Those are the rust spots that made me decide to start the restoration, I've seen way worse and rusty cars but since I'd like to keep this as long as I can I thought it would have been better to do something straight away

I really hope my chassis will hide less surprises! :o
That's a massive job you did and still doing!
Btw the colour is fantastic and I think it's going to dress my Savane :D

Took off some VTR I put on the floor panels when I bought the car in September 2012.
It made a good protection for the floor where the rust was removed and everything had been protected with special wax.
But on the junction with the metal sheet it made a water stagnation that started some others rust spots. Luckily way less serious.
