History
Got the car as a gift from another member with the condition I would make a unique vehicle. The car was completely dissassembled and media blasted. Very minor rust issues were resolved and complete car was covered with Lab-Metal to inhibit corrosion. The top was cut after reinforcements were installed and a custom rear deck was made.
