Cheers for all the comments

I started up another thread with some more photos of the progress, just search up Alan Mann :wink:

I got the fibreglass arches of trademe so unsure where they are originally from.

Was on the look out for an auto shell, a little bit less fabrication work i guess

Will keep you guys up to date!

Sweet starting point! Are you going to make it as a track car or just for the road/occasional blat on the track? Also, are you going to keep it original and roll on 13's or go bigger with the wheels? Good luck with your project!

Great to catch up. I really hope my A pillars don't look like that! Bit scared to check...

Nice work, love the arches.

What was the escort meet you have on photobucket?

Cheers

edit: dont worry - i did it for ya.

Loving the mega updates!

Nice work on the strengthening! you making it up as you go or are these mods common practice?

The strengtheners you go toff shaneo? Are they just the same thing from another car welded ontop to double it up or was the partscort equipped with some aftermarket fancies?

Hey mate. Nice project you got going there.

Loving the fab work.

I was just wondering where you got your fibre guards?

And how much you paid.

Also do you still have the original guards. And would you sell them? Mine are beyond repair.
