Looking very nice, I'm looking forward to seeing it completed.

Yeah I've just been quoted $1350 to fix all my rust up, not the best timing for me but it'll be good to have it done.

So once you have removed the rust will you be using anything like POR-15 or KBS Rust Seal before you paint?

The rear wheels look mighty small back there, and sunken in.

Some serious spacers or special wheels will be in order ;)

Sounds wicked man, you should get onto it so I can come over for a drive! Start practicing with that mig as soon as you've got it, panel steel is a bit of a pain to weld :)

I'm sorry.
I was busy, and was not able to be seen. You did very good work by using limited information. I(and Daisy) retrieve "Mugen badge" hard for you & matt. ;-)
