well i have decided finally to stop being slack and put my car up in this thread...

i bought the car as a 16 yr old and had it on the road for a few months until the manual gear box sh*t itself, wen i 1st bought it i always had plans for a full respray but not this soon so wen the box went i decided to strip her down and paint her..

as i work for Pro Car collision repair centre it wasnt hard getting things started i striipped it back to bear metal, door jams around the boot sill on everything no short cuts were going to be taken.. the colour i chose was from the ppg line which is a custom blue radience colour which i never will actually say the name bc its such a nice colour... the repairs were done and polyestered, this is wen the modifications to the drive line started...

The car was sent to RAJAB RACING and some heavy modifications were done to the drive line.... instead of going for another manual a had a 2sp powerglide with 3500stall and transbrake built by paul rogers who is in the drag racing scene.....

soon as car was back at Pro Car was rub backed then hi filled just to pick up any bits tat may have been missed.
