Ok I started this off in Dec 06 as a total loss vehicle for $100. It had a bad drive shaft, bad transmission and alot of body damage, as well as the interier was shot also. The good thing is it came with a fully done suspession and brake system with all the braces also.







This is how my project started.

well money would make it go faster but on a military paycheck it is hard. At least I am a certified mechanic so that saves me alot of money on the installs and rebiulds I have done and am doing for the car.

the wheels were 99 a piece from goodwinracing, and they are light as hell. As for the body work we started with replacing the fenders and hood then used paintless dent removal for the rear panels. There is still alot to do with it but I am sticking with black so the carbon looks great with it.

Well I stripped the front end off this weekend to paint it. We got the paint shot but ran out of time for the clear so I have to wait till Wednesday to finish it off, but here is how the pieces look so far.

Looking good, but where did you find it? On a driving range, those where some pretty good sized dents. Excellent to see its getting a new life.

Well It was turned into our craft shop(junk yard) because the owner blew the trans out of it. I was told it was in a bad hail storm 2 years ago and they never fixed the car. So I got it dirt cheap and am fixing it up myself as seeing I am able to. If I had to pay someone to do this I would have never bought the car. I was an ASE mechanic(never did the recertifications) before I changed jobs now I just do it for fun and extra money.
