Looking forward to learning to weld.
My first car when I was 15 was a MG so you already know I'm a glutton for punishment.
Before you dig all the rust and poor repairs out of this thing, keep in mind the option of washing it off, getting it running and punting it is out there too. Sorry to see that you found hidden suprises.
Those are all valid points. I was just over here feeling bad for you in case what you got was a lot worse than what you thought you were getting. Seen it happen too many times.
