Picked this up off Dan at O1G, wasn't running, front end was still in bits and had no gearbox in it. First site I was in love, possibly the coolest car, ever. RTB originally made it cool, i just want to bring it back on the streets and enjoy driving it around. Got it running with a 33 4 door 20E, RB30 manual box and exedy clutch, I didn't really like the pink stripe at the time so I ditched it for a subtle gun metal, which I regret doing, but could be changing it up to a candy red. Anyways, here's some cool photos and what not. Hopefully changing the wheels over to a combo of bbs and rays mesh.

Got raped, pretty hard too, car goes in wednesday for inspection, has to goto a dot station, been waiting 3 months for this, been sitting like this for the past 3 months, it's shocking. :(

Like I said, if all goes well, as of wednesday it'll be low again and hopefully sporting some meshies soonish, I can only hope.

I've seen your cars around a bit. I saw the laurel at bunnings probably a month ago when it was raised. Still looks alright though lol

Already purchased one off him, they don't fit properly sadly, had to cut mine up and what not :( Still works but.

Anyways, losing interest in this thing slowly, i just don't drive it too much, need to rekindle my love somehow.

Im going to opt for the 80's VIP look with this I think. I'm not a huge fan of wheels on the poke side on an old school sedan personally, I'm going to opt for 6jj/7jj +40ish. Id really like some Sebring spoke wheels, but they're just hard to come by so anything similar would be cool.

Going for this look, but lower as you could imagine. I'm really liking the idea of fender mirrors aswell but rob said they were terrible on his mark1 so I'm not too sure.

Sorry but those wheels look disgusting. Your chrome 3 spokes even look better

Personal preference, I build a car for myself and no one else at the end of the day.

Haha, I just need weathersheilds so I can do it while it's raining. I've been wanting to get the aircon done in this for a long time now but have never committed just for that reason, seems pointless when I drive with all 4 windows down anyway.

I need to get myself a gloria belt assembly for the front so I can unclip the belts from the roof.

Thanks bud.

Did abit of looking around on ebay today and found you can buy hub adapters for wire wheels (just the single thread in the center). Pretty stoked, just going to find myself some decent wire wheels and go from there.

You are on the right path my friend. I like the way you think, fender mirrors included. :)
