Yah the plastic formula used in the early production years of the 2nd gen, gets quite brittle with age, especially when exposed to the sun.  Fortunately the panels are same to '88 so you might be able to find good replacements.  You can repair them using fiberglass.

The start up seems normal, not being efi, giving it extra gas once fired, is normal.

The ticking noise, if actually ticking and clacking, is just normal valve tick for Toyota engines of that era.

A valve lash/adjustment may be worth it, if there is no record indicating when it was done last.

The rotten egg smell from time to time, is an indication the catalytic converter in on its way out.

You guys are cool as :pokinit:. Thx for all the advice. Out of uncontrollable excited-nes I went to the car wash late last night (2am this morning) to wash all the Red Rock dust off from it and started detailing. Besides a few dings in the red, the corner plastic cover on the bumper, and a small area of broken inside paneling, its cosmetically good.

As far as the start ups go,when cold it cranks and will turn over but only after giving it a little bit on the gas pedal. It will then run for a brief 2-3 seconds then wants to die unless you keep slightly on the gas. It acts this way until the temp gauge reaches about middle way. At this point, it runs a little rough almost like missing cylinders until you get in it and drive it down the road, which then eventually evens out and you only can hear a slight ticking noise in the engine as it idles.

The smell usually goes away after its been driving, no smell after its warmed up either but I have noticed a rotten egg kinda smell a few times after driving it around. (im sure im worrying the inevitable at this point) I just want it perfect I guess haha.

Thx again for the replies, you guys are great feedback.
