So, last year I picked up Ugmo. After a short stint, Rich D. came up with this car. As it already had a lot of what I wanted to do to my ride, I talked to Rich and we traded off Ugmo.
Let the cutting and welding begin.
We would need:
new floors welded in
cut off the remaining fenders
GT kit welded in
Media blast
primer

The eventual build would have
Fiberglass fenders, hoods, rear bumper
suby motor
Low maintenance
easy for the wiffy to drive
Lets begin
