this is my dads project that has officially started today!! we've sorted out all the best panels that we have and made sure that they are all going to fit the shell, the car is getting stripped again tomorrow inc suspension so it can go for blasting either on monday or tuesday, i need the front axle off it for my pickup as its an s2 type and my dad has already rebuilt the correct front axle for it, will keep you posted as it progresses

Compared to some of the other projects you're doing this looks like a walk in the park! When will it be done, a week on Friday Cheesy

I agree. This looks like it will be far too easy for you sort out, the shell looks to be in very good condition with hardly any corrosion in the usual places.

A little more done today, all the panels removed again and myself and matty set to stripping of the remains of the suspension, we put the shell on a trolley 1st and finally loaded it onto the trailer ready for blasting, my dad set about stripping the doors of all their locks and handles etc whilst we sorted the shell out, well all i can say is i wish i had a pound for every pop rivit that i've found today, if i did then i could afford a restored aprilia and wouldnt have to do this 1 !!  Cheesy its looking more like one of our projects everytime i look at it, to be fair all the panels are there and mostly just need welding in however we have discovered a few nasties along the way and i'm sure the blasting will reviel more

well bad news, had the shell back today see what you think, the work thats been done is that bad we (father and i) are concidering using another shell that we have, its not often i turn my back on a project but whoever did the work on this shell should give up and go back to their day job, i have a saying, if a job is beyond my capabilities then i'll let someone who knows what they are doing do it for me eg i'd never concider building a wall or plastering as i havent a clue, pretty much like whoever has done this body work ....... NOT A CLUE!!!  Shocked

Looks robust enough to me - but can understand why you'd get the next one off the shelf and try that one...
