After resting for more than 7 years, i decided to restore my "first fast Car" (bought when i was 19... 15 years ago)... it deserved it.

We are Mitsubishi Dealers since 1981, so finding Parts and Manuals was mostly easy... going to the cellar and open some of those dusty boxes.

My goal was a 85% Car, something that looks and feels as it is just his second season on the Roads... a Car that looks good, but still can be driven without sh/&/&ting pants when a Bug hits the Windshield.
So i tried to turn back the Clock 26 Years.

With many brand new and NOS Parts.


Out of its storage, June 2011:

Image



Yes, we replace that... ouch.
Image



I start to collect and sort new/NOS Parts.
Image
Image
Image
Image


After having at least two of each Emblem, Mirror and any other Trim Part NEW in stock, i started...
Image



This Door was worst of all... but we fixed it properly.
Image
Image


Just like all the other small things.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image



And yes, we had the Windshield out for painting... a new one was delivered withing few hours (!!!) from a local Car Glass Dealer.
Image


Now the Wheels... they really needed some sandblasting.
Image


I painted them at home in a common Lancer Evo color... A69.
Image
Image
Image


A Set of Pirelli P6 was my choice... modern thread pattern would look strange on that "Blackbox".
Image


I hate worn Keys. So a NOS Blank from our stock had "to die".
Image


Looks better.

[SIZE="6"]3 weeks ago i finished the Car, so here are (tataaaa...) some more Photos. [/SIZE]

Looks awesome! Makes me want one even more. Favorite part is the backwards "2000 TURBO" decal on the front, love it! :tu:

Great looking car! By the way, I've been looking for NOS key blanks. Any more in stock you'd be willing to "let die"?

OMG this thing is incredible. This is basically what I'm planning on doing with my Mirage. Just bringing her back to a good NOS, second season look. You were so lucky with some of these finds. The emblems, and all that. I would KILL to be able to find a NOS vintage Mitsubishi key like that. ABSOLUTELY KILL.

Would love some pics of the engine bay if possible. :D
