    It's done!

    From this!
    http://www.pitobread.com/media2/inde...restoration%2F





    To this!










    It only took 8 months!

    All thats left exterior wise is to throw my Solex locks on, and install my pager alarm + Immobilizer.

    Now I can actually enjoy the car!

    Thanks for the kind words

    The front fender is flared on the pass side too, the drivers side fender is junk. I didn't want to waste my time trying to fix up that fender and flare it. I'm still looking for a cheap drivers side fender.

    The muffler is supposedly a trust or something like that, It's loud. I'm looking for a internally baffled/chambered muffler to replace it with.

    Want my old Ractive muffler? Bought it for $250 I think... two years ago... almost three years ago... it's now off my car... $10 and it's yours.

    Is it chambered or straight through?

    If it's not a straight through muffler and doesent have a ginormus tip, I'd be all over that.

    Woah, congrats Joel! I'm impressed! Looks like the interior stuff from my POS parts car cleaned up nicely eh?

    You should buff the daylights out of it and make it uber shiny. Hope I get the chance to see it this summer!

    Randy and Kenneth would be proud ;)

    looks good, haven't seen that car with an interior for years! I'd be interested to see what you can squeeze out of that motor, it's got some goodies in their, probably has been held back by the stock ECU.

    haha I was going to track down Randy and show him what his old car had became... good eyes for noticing it's Randys old car I was even going to get some TRD stickers and pay a hommage(sp?) hahaha


    I only wish I had got all the parts it originally had when the previous owner had bought it from him. It was pretty stacked.

    interesting

    I did not realize their was a 'middle' owner between you and Randy.

    Well at least it appears to have the same motor, that was a good engine, cams and pistons I believe, good TRD clutch too, still have the OEM LSD?
