Strong work Smile Wondered what had happened to this. Have you bought it really recently or are you the guy who swapped a front red stripe bumper with me for my chrome stripe one?

she just bought it but probly off the guy your talking about as he had it for years it came with a chrome strip bumper but its the wrong one as the rears has two strips and the front just one so we will be on the hunt for one soon as well as new wings and doors as they both have more rust than is worth fixing

car probly wont be getting worked on much until my cars finished as thats talking up to much time at the mo

did buy some wheels though

i didnt do any of the work on it- i bought it as a shell and sold it in the same condition. It was the guys who bought it off me that did the welding and fitted the cage. Didnt you get it off them or has it been passed around again. At the time I sold it I needed money to go to my mates wedding in Oz, so needs must and all that. Ive always regretted it and would love one again in the future. It was even on sale on here at the time too
