Strip the chassis, remove NVH, fix all the holes/paint, rewire, drive.

Okay, so after a long transport, she arrived, but not without issue... lol

Hood flipped up on the highway while on the trailer that she was moving on. Driver didn't strap it down, whatever, **** happens. I have her in my possession now, and it was a cheap tow for 550km



Does anyone have a coffin hood? Or maybe Ill just flat hood it. But I was really starting to dig coffin hoods. I put the piece of wood there and I was able to pop out the dent, but the hinges are so f'ed, and the hood is like a mountain range.

Broken taillight too. Little help? anyone have a spare?



First thing I did was clean all the grime off, she has been sitting for 2 years(damn time flies).








I forgot I had gotten the engine all ready to pull out! Should make quick work of that this weekend so I can fix the clutch. Also going to try and bend the clutch/brake pedal box back into position instead of buying one. Anyone have a picture of a not bent clutch pedal box?

So if anyone in the Ottawa/Montreal area has some parts, I would love to get some to get this car going. I was on the lookout for a hydro clutch setup too.

I think that is just from sitting in humid weather. The car hasn't seen any salt in the last two years, it was parked at the end of a long driveway away from the road. I guess that would still be Ontario corrosion! haha The exhaust is actually in great shape and it was sitting on the ground under the car for over a year and a bit, just a bit of surface rust. You can see the downpipe in the trunk. That bare metal turbo rusted so quick. Probably should take it off and clean it, maybe coat it.

I will not give up on this car.












Most of the tar stuff is gone! Only minor heat stroke today.



The stuff on the tunnel is super tough to get off.

Next step is to remove the center seat support, the whole thing, get new floor pans and weld them in.

Progress is slow, but I started extending the clutch pedal to accept a hydro cylinder.

Cut it 3cm down from the shaft.





Started working a piece of 1/4" plate steel.







Snug fit.



Have to do the other end, and weld it together, with some reinforcing as well.
