Default From "ferrari" to "all hail, Lord Crumple Butts" to straight Unicorn

Started as a humble gift, then a friend glazed and waxed it back to ferrari red so I was going to slowly and classily refine it into such. Then ATL gave it love bump and pillaged the wallet. Now it's destiny is unlocked into a full Unicorn build. A slow build though. One phase at a time.

The plan. The scheme. The pipe dream.

The obligatory manual swap. The restoration of my humps. A/C. Wheels. Then bring motor swap (merc V12) to life on an engine stand with a bucket of gas feeding it. Figure out how to put a BMW box behind it. Build an 8.8 with a torsen. Swap it all in. Include one of those mechanical exhaust dumps to keep it quiet or not.



But for now, ALL HAIL LORD CRUMPLE BUTTS!!!

Picking up the other 244 that is already a manual (motor out). Cleanly swap in a B630. Daily that.

Which ones? I was having issues with both the forum and imgur uploader/links.

Also, 10mb is too small. But hey. Thanks anyway.
