Even if the doors are still same length as a 4 door because you welded the 2 doors together and hoped the hinge holds up?

You guys were right the headliner was easy once you realize how it wraps in there.

Well, besides the glass, gas tank and a couple things under the car ill do tomorrow it's completely stripped.

Side note, the stand is great but with no weight in the front of the car I crawled in the back door and pulled a giant wheelie in the car by accident. Lol

that's it, everything is stripped off the car. I'm honestly amazed, only 1 stripped bolt and one broken bolt in the entire car. Everything was greasy or muddy but very, very solid! Cut the battery tray out and while the top was rusty, it hadn't made it thru the tray to even the back side of it yet.

So thrilled :D

Awesome thanks Johann. For ~300 bucks it's worthy a shot. I have Jacobs adapters too so I'll have some options.

Keep in mind that the price shown on the site is including VAT so you'll get them 25% cheaper.

I think it's either a cracked head or blown HG but it did run. It just has oil and oil instead of water. If you want to borrow it I'm sure that can be arranged.

Honestly, not really. Between having an incredibly crazy few weeks with every weekend booked, getting ready for NAMM (think: SEMA for music nerds) and being broke anyways not much.

Ironically, Ken (redwoodchair) is here right now beadblasting some stuff which I charged him 1 flathood for and I get to pickup my HSCRPIO plates today!

Sweetness. I am jealous of your project. Smog exempt..."bastaaaards!!" (echo...echo...)

My sister went to NAMM last year; she was a finalist in a high school "battle of the bands" type competition. I went and listened to all the groups at Downtown Disney...good times, and some impressive kids. Is it in Anaheim again this year?

Yep, Anaheim. The main reason most of the country goes, Anahiem in January > almost anywhere else.

Honestly dude, the kids always blow me away. I meet more 18 year old guitar players that are just mind blowing than anything else.

LOL actually... yes sort of. Car's going out to get sand blasted next week (maybe friday... we'll see how busy it is). I finally finished getting the glass out of it over the weekend.

Honestly from about sept through now I haven't had 5 minutes of free time. Major trade show in the US (NAMM) in january and one in Germany (Musikmesse) in two weeks pretty much eats up every spare moment I have. But we ship out all the guitars for Germany on monday :D
