Well this project happened through a trade with club member Frank Lux - a great guy !! - I traded this shell and set about restoring it - no before shots ,but Frank will tell you how bad it was .I stripped all the paint off and the shell fell into pieces around the rear body mount fixings and it became a jigsaw , but with some tlc it now looks like this ( still need a MB lense for one of the alu. spotlights ) J-man front bumper ,alloy exhaust by me , alloy wheel covers. Chassis will get full work over later




-sorry about the focus
