Recommended Posts

RUST. as you can see there are a few holes that have been hammer in a bit and filled with bog. becuase this car deserves to be saved all the crap is getting chopped out and replaced with new steel

underneath seems solid. so a quick coat of rustkill stuff before the new bits are welded in. The A pillar will need a little more surgery as it has gone right through the inner pillar. this is only the passenger side, the drivers side seems alot better.

I pulled the guard off so we had access to the windscreen pillar.  no suprise that the a pillar needed a few patches and the bottom of the guard was full of bog....

the doors off the parts car were heaps better so they went on. the green doors look a bit funny with the blue interior but meh no rust wins. deleted the mirror mounts off the drivers door too

Because I'm such a great guy, I whipped up some of these for the black smoke.machine.  @Carsnz123  will have to swap the gearbox and do the floor change conversion  before we can fit these. 

Also please ignore the horrible welding on the end caps. They're not pretty, but they are glued.on.
