      Ok some of you may remember my old thread. It kinda got disorganized and wrecked so I decided to start from scratch. To begin with A huge thanks to one of my best friends and huge motivator Robin (GTi20V) also Roy (MK2G60T) and Lucas (lucaq)

      Here we go:
      My old coupe was wrecked in a hit and run, which really sucked but made a great Donner...




      Then we Begin stripping the poor girl.

      Some of the PO great work (not Snoopy)

      My dumb a$$

      Got the whole thing in one truck load

      CHEERS
