its good that you didnt go show car style and hide everything. its nice to see somthing looking original these days. im hoping to pull somthing off like this in my car.( but with more things hiden, but still keeping the standard look).... if that makes sense.

engine bay looks mint mate, battery bag looks gd, easy and cost effective way to solve an ugly problem.. still cant get over how clean the bay looks, so std looking yet really nice, surprising wat a lick of paint n polish can do, keep it up n cant wait to see it finished mate

yeah guys went on ebay tonight dont realy want to sell but i want my cousin 10sec VR4 sleeper which he has offerd to sell to me for a realy cheap price (so he can still drive it i think) And dont have room for another car without getting rid of 1.
If it doesnt sell ill finish it.
Ive had people message me already offering 3k but the plenum radiator and fuel system where more than that.

That's what I thought it's so tempting but i got nowhere to put another car, let alone the need for one but this would be a great project for someone, I wish i had a shed! Good Luck with which ever way it goes!

thanks guys im thinking about pulling it off ebay to tell you the truth, all im getting is low ball offers and lots of people messaging me wanting parts off the car.The car i was going to buy may no longer be for sale also, so you guys might get to see me finish this thing after all.
