AJ's Limited Edition SL

Hey everyone, About a year ago i picked up this Limited edition SL for $800, it was yellow stickered, needed a new windscreen radiator front tires and a head recon,

later down the track it blew the water pump gasket, so i replaced the pump gasket pipes and all housings and thermostat, it's also gone through a couple AFM's still waiting on a working one, apart from a load of little things, it's also got new wheel cylinders and shoes in the drums on the rear, new tires and pads on the front,

otherwise there's a Group A grille, and a bunch of other cosmetic mods

the sound system was a sony cd tuner with 2 pioneer 6" 130W coaxials in the doors, i put in a JVC MP3/CD/TUNER with Aux input, 2 Pioneer 130W 6x9"'s in the back as part of a split system with 2 Pioneer 2/4" tweaters, i plan to upgrade the front to splits sooner or later, i don't care that much,

At the moment i'm busy paying bills, and keeping my work car on the road, (89 LD astra) atm it needs a fuel pressure regulator,

but once i'm free with cash, it'l be a new air flow meter, and then to the brake shop and others to get the rest fixed,

hopefully i can have her on the road soon, it's gonna be a nice car...
