Picked this up few weeks back..

Giving it a freshen up over winter ready for some fun next summer..

The interior was the wrong colour so I set about sorting that and looking for any major rust..

Looks in pretty good condition, sure there will be some rust somewhere, looks like a nice dry barn you got there, what colour interior were you after?

I'm yet to find anything major.. its had the front floor pans done a few yrs back.. but 1 side is going again.. the bumper bracket in the d/s isnt attatched anymore but thats the worst so far.. A pillar and roof gutter habe early stage tin worm but it'll last ok until I can get it fully restored next yr.

I was after black interior which is what I've painted it.. just doorcards to go..

Cant wait to get it fitted...

I also spotted a set of wheels local with A048's on, so I snapped them up..

Painted the spoiler satin black underneath and got it mounted on properly..

Side trims have been removed too as I had one missing and most were bubbling with rust at ends and pissing me off!

Started to cut out the patch that was on the drivers rear sill today as it was apparent all was not well with it.. our fears were confirmed once we got it cut out.. The so called 'fix' was just welded over the original rotten metal.. this is just plain retarded I dont know why people even bother doing this.. this led me to believe all the patches on this car will be the same.. a quick poke about almost confirms this.. cowboys!

Anyway all was cut out and new panels started to be made up... I left my mate on with that while I started refubing my MR5's and finishing up my budget sunstrip..
