its far from clean haha but x1000 from when i picked it up from the country town for $1000

plans are tighen suspension cause most is stuffed and spool kills old rubber bushers
for now just some hubcaps slam down the front, quick respray and some panels replaced, paint the window surrounds, 20% tint, fit the 85lt tank and another engine and worked trans

its just a daily/thrasher to get around in while i work on the ss :D

haha yea vns ar prety leathal when wen just a stocker..

few pics from my latest project for the daily.

i had a 85lt powercoated mercury silver and gloss black straps but unded up finding out the straps were for a irs car so they were useless LOL i ended up making my own outa alloy strips and bent them up to fit by hand. was a 2day ordeal and all hoses were brand new due to the shitty orginal ones bein spilt so everything is done perfect and will never leak again.. happy with results and learnt how to install the fuel pump while doin this.

few pics of the progess.
