    Echo that, great job. Pic of interior and engine would top that off. Need to ask, whats it like to drive. It's hard to remake an entire car and get it spot on in all aspects first time round.

    Thanks :) I need to get into my own house, tired of renting and not sure if I have the money for toys
    It is most definitely a regretful sale

    Pictures of engine bay and interior to come!

    The car is awesome to drive, no squeaks or rattles. Admittedly it doesn't like sitting in traffic on hot days and will sometimes stall and not want to start for a minute or so. Other than that it is pretty much 100%
    Yes It is difficult to get a car 100% which is why it has taken me so long! haha
