Hey folks - old new guy here.. Former Fox owner 20 years ago.. potentially got my hands on a beauty.. The car is in VERY good condition.. but still want to look it over as best as possible..

i'm not sure what exactly to look for..Here's what i "think" i know

Strut Towers
Torque Boxes
Rust at the hatch, Radiator support
Door Pins
(no sunroof.. so nothing there)
rear side windows

Any other things to look at?

Thanks in advance.

The area around the door hinges, look for rust there
Check the area under the car where the seat bolts are, look for cracks, not a deal breaker but good to know. I
Under dash wiring, some people hack that stuff up
Area around the battery tray, especially under the tray
