Is the re-build due to a prang, rust or something more adventurous ?

a bit of all of them mate. got the car and previous owner bypassed expansion tank sensor. I went down motorway bit faster than 70, went bang, seized and burned the bearings out after it got a little warm. so decided to rebuild engine

engine out I noticed chassis leg was holed all round so binned shell. got another with less rust. or so I thought. so after rebuilding engine and chopping all rust out im finally painting it. once complete it will almost be a new car. hopefully
