    It wasn't totally from scratch, but it was in a bad way when i got him. lots of welding, new front end. I''ve got a bit of work to do with the wings, as you can see they dont sit flush with the front and rear valance, and i'm gonna rip out all the electrics and replace with all new wiring. something to keep me busy over the winter months. Also got an old RS turbo interior to chop and fit, so some nice recaro's in the front.

    He's low, especially with the exhaust pipe sitting under the rear valance, cannot have any rear passengers as it bottoms out with every little bump, even without rear passengers any type of speed bump is a no no
