    well here are the pics. Here are the pics of the 71 when i picked it up in Chicago will get more. And The ra40 the night i got it and drove it from milwaukee. Too bad winter took a toll on both cars. But Im ordering the rockers for both and make the floor pan for the 71. Luckily the 81 has a super solid under body. Well i guess ill make this as my little build thread for both cars. Perfect thing is both cars have great interior with def a 10 out of 10. Ill take some pics them.

    I removed the motor off the 81 still have it if anybody wants it. Was running great. I could not find Fender flares for the ra40 so i decided to gamble with some ae86s which turned out well with some cutting. Its a bit shorter around the edges so im going to have to figure something out on that.

    Yeah i know most people would of kept the 71. But it was too much for me and not enough funds to finish both. Plus a made a little extra money on it. Which is going back to the 81. Once im done with this one in the summer ill pick up another 1st gen.
