Well some of you may or may not remember my last thread when I aquired this car:


with the intentions of returning it to its original beauty. It finally took its trip to the bodyshop. here's some pics.










LOL I took it for a very short spin down the street before putting it on the trailer, lol, got some looks :)

I finally got most of the dash pieced together after ALOT of parts from members on the board and the dealer, Also scored a set of stock 17's that are in great shape! The new quarter is probably almost on by now, I dropped the car off earlier in the weekend. I think I did a pretty damn good job of stripping it, I enlisted the help of a friend and my gf, now our apartment is stocked full of interior stuff.


As soon as it gets back from the shop, the Greddy PE exhaust and RMM dp are going in, as well as the GReddy bcc and tt.

I'm excited :bigthumb:

BTW if anyone has a stock radio mount they'd like to get rid of, pls let me know...thanks.

from what I can tell, that quarter mated with a guardrail...kinda funny that's my userid, but anyway it took out the left rear rim and suspension, the links have been replaced, as well as the half shaft, the k member might be slightly bent but it should come out with a frame tug. the front got barely clipped on the driverside, just enough that the fenders won't quite bolt up. But all is well, it should be all fixed up by friday and in primer, then blocked and painted next week...that's the plan anyway.

I know you said "original beauty" but are you keeping it red? This seems like it would be a good time for a new paint job. :)

And that clean driver's seat sticks out like a soar thumb.

Got some pics of some progress, quarter is on, front clip is on (but not in the pics), and they've only got some dents and whatnot to work out.











EDIT: I shrank these pics by 50%, if you guys think they're still too big, I'll shrink them again...

Yea both are on backwards, just needed something to run around on :). I'll swap them when it gets back.

more pics:











its getting there, I think we are going to scrap using that hood for a better one I have, the front lines up perfectly, especially the healights etc..the rear deck is perfect also. Door lines came out beautiful...overall everything has come together really nicely. For those asking for the cost...It will be well under 18k finished, that includes full BPU items. It'll be in full prinmer tonight, so more pics as the week progresses, looking for it to be all painted by next weekend.. :bigthumb:
