Recovering the contents of a stolen Blogger blog

A Blogger blog was hacked. The perpetrator declared he'll delete all content pretty soon. It's six years of work I want to save.

The blog doesn't belong to me, I was a contributor. I understand that Google won't be helping us recovering the ownership (it's on their TOS that it's the admin's responsability).
What I want to do is save as much content as possible and help the original author relaunch the blog. Unfortunately, the blog is being modified and some images aren't appearing anymore. It's a race against time.
I've already salvaged the Atom feed and some of the images it references. The rest of the archive looks inaccesible.
I'm a proficient programmer and I can do webscrapers. I need the hive mind to help me with pointers on where/how to recover the contents.
