Star Wars: “Rust Bucket” Restoration

Restored in 2007. Here is the Star Wars Rust-Bucket Edition. This was reimported from Taiwan and arrived on a container ship, which likely leaked, resulting in a lot of rust. This was a difficult challenge that I would not like to repeat. I was able to remove all traces of rust by replacing numerous parts, but it took a long time to guarantee that all systems were rebuilt and running properly. On this one, the force was strong!
