The last metal work will be some stuff on the floors where it has seen a lot of bad jacking practices at the racetrack which have crunched various supports and reinforcements. It is class legal to install some reinforced jacking points which shall be strategically placed. I swear this car was super solid and worth saving! I am just not leaving any stone unturned and because I had the spare sheet metal I am putting it to use. Turns out I am actually restoring the parts car using pieces from the yellow car. Call it a VIN-up restoration?

    Once the floors are done I will do some refinishing on the diff and install with my new T3 heim links and panhard, paint the engine bay tremclad grey and refinish the front subframe, LCAs, struts, and install with T3 outter tie rod ends, RCAs, and manual rack, then I will have a roller again and it's cage time!

    Unless you guys think i can fit the shell into a longbox truck bed.

    Windshield frame rust


    New quarter draped in place


    Old and busted


    New hotness



    Buy my BMW! It is clogging up the driveway.

    C-can I buy your 1JZ Celica or your 1UZ Corolla instead? lol

    I saved some pics and I honestly can't stop looking at it, like a wolf in sheep's clothing with the cage and Tremclad interior.

    Welding and panel beating wise, are you self taught??

    Will be back out there this weekend.

    Needs some JDM bumpers, but so price! Maybe just some aluminum or thin wall steel tube bumper re-bars.

    And BEAMs power...
