Default External trouble - inital work req'd

I've already mentioned the moss on the trim.

This and other stuff needs to be tackled pretty quickly.

The current plan with the car is

Remove the trim / repair and polish / replace.
With trim off polish old paint work where it is good
Small amounts of welding where necessary
Treat rust + repaint + blend (I've seen a few yew toob videos on this subject so I now consider myself to be an expert...)
Replace rubber seals


Example of trouble =>

The trim on the left hand side of the car isn't nicely aligned. I thought it might be accident damage - but - after making a few measurements it seems as though the trim on the A pillar (below the schuttle) bit looks like it has been fixed on too low at the front end. There could be a lump of filler where the hole should be of course...

...nasty bits of rust forming on the swimming pool type wing tops =>
