its nice too put a car too a name so here is some photos of my car in primer. earlier pictures ar during the 3 month shake down and test before finall disasembley for paint.seams too be the long way to do things ,but if your not in a rush its the best way.many unexpected things have popped up during those 3 months and i'm sure glad it wasn't painted .i've had the car over 23 years ,and in 1983 i chopped it 4 1/2 \" then ran the car hard each summer for3-4 years going through at least 2-3 engine combos a year.finally i just parked it as i was plagued with mechanical problems and was just sick of working on it ,so i wrote a note of everthing that needed inproving and repare ,tossed it on the passanger seat and parked 2002 i lifted the cover and got rehooked again,so i took the note and went through everthing and came up with a plan .which pretty much meant picking up where i left off years earlier ,included this round -rechop body to 5 \"/fix everthing i hated/run to vw 2003 car show in coquitlam/run 70 hp shot of nitrous /and have fun doing it!made good on all was run very hard for 3 months and held up very well.all work was performed by myself except for the body filler work and the rancho trans.thanks too all that helped with info or a hand when i needed it.I OWE YOU all  a ride in the spring of 2004 .
car runs a 2275 motor/5 speed trans/old school centre lines/cage and a glass nose [NOW CONVERTED TOO STEEL].see you on the streets in 2004 ,now i need to pick a colour?
