Well its not much to look at but heres the pics. I bought the car 2.5 years ago and have been slowly working away ever since. As of right now it is about 2 weeks away from paint.
If I would have known it was going to be this much work I would have never bought it, I am so glad I didn't know it was going to be this much work LOL. It has become almost an obsession, I am so hooked.
I am new to posting pics on here so if I mess up, let me know. basic pics for the first set, Not quite in order but I am sure you will figure it out. More to come as It progresses.

What manufacturer made those red springs? H&R?

Good luck with the rebuild! What colour are you painting it?

your right, the springs are H&R sports. I am going to either paint it graphite metallic or i think this is my better option, macao blue, just found that e30 color yesterday.
cheers
