The car is going to go soon up to the shop which is helping me with this, so it can be tore down to a bare shell.

Then it will be stripped back to bare metal, any rust damage etc fixed and the metal work mods can start.

I plan to have the car built over the course of this year and then ready for the 2018 show and track day year.

The car is being built to the best I can do, so it’s all new bolts and the best I can afford in terms of set up.
A set of track rims is under consideration, with track rubber, as the car will see track action, along with show and shine work etc

The car is slightly famous already, I purchased it last summer, from a good friend, who had already started the mods and got the car featured in a car magazine.

Since I have owned the car, I have added a lot of mods, that I already had, such as Koni adjustable suspension for the front and KYB for the rear with Eibach springs, the rims, the interior, the lights, the HKS and K& N filters, chrome detailing etc.
How she sits right now

The car is super straight and very very clean; I wanted the best base for the build possible.
Anyway below are a few pics to give you the idea.
