March 2013: Pics and video from California Speedway
January 2013: added videos of the construction process on page 2 & 3
pics and vids of the 'finished' car on p. 8
If you want to skip to the finished car, start on page 6
These pages will document the progress of the work I do on this car. They will progress in chronological order as much as possible--so some things will probably change over time. I plan on doing ALL of the work myself, in my garage.
Here are a few pics of the car when I got it home . I knew from the start that this car was going to be a project!!! The plan for now is to fix the rust on the body, and put a 3TC motor with a turbo.
This was going to be a major restoration. I was even considering finding a rust free TE 31 and cutting the body off and dropping this body on. But after a full disassembly there was too much rust--the rear wheel wells were rotted away. It is too bad that I didn't take more pictures of all the rust. Also the floor (at least what wasn't rusted through) was really torn up from someone doing a real hack job trying to put in different seats.

Great ride. You should check out mine some time. 5* keep up the great work.
Mark. Great work. You took a page right out of my book and wrote another. it looks like you learned a lot along the way and ended up with something better than you started with. Well done sir. Be proud of your achievement.
What a cool transformation
Fantastic job. Great to see all the progress pics and appreciate all of the work you put into this. 5 stars!
