At the beginning, i bought this car with a ignition problem, to manufacture parts, like fenders, bumpers, wings.... I repared it, and like i love this car, and like she got fex rust, i will restore :wink:

I already manufacture a rear wing for her :)

I already do:

- Clean inside the car and refix all plastic panels
- Clean the engine bay
- Find the rust :lol:
- Repare brakes (I bought it with no brakes too :lol: )

I already find my wheels, a set of 4 GOTTI wheels in 13", 14" ou en 15", or all :lol: I did not already chose my model :wink:

Thanks ;)

I will take more pics as soon as possible ;)

I already started to manufacture the prototype of the rear bumper. It's the proto, made in 2 days. Not very clean, very basic, but very good to work on it ;)

Image

I will make a JDM rear bumper. My the licence plate support is too rusty, so i will change it. I have to repair the rear of the car under the bumper, because i saw that one last owner back into a pole or other. There is lot of rust, and i have to reform the rear part.

I found rust under the side skirts too. 2 cm wide by 20 inches long.
