Well i think its time to update my thread its been awhile since ive posted anything in here,

ran into a couple issues with the car also replaced the Jatco as it Shat itself now running a 3spd Trimatic Dash is done Speedo etc working, only issue is trying to find a Tach Signal Even had to Remove the PWR Radiator as it was causing me some issues had to go back to the old Copper radiator for the time being.

also got rid of the White one piece Simmons and Purchased some FR19 3Piece and got them polished!

Came across a ****load of NOS Maderia Material so keep an eye out in the next couple months for Brand new trim / Golde Sunroof (era Correct) with NOS glass , and a Custom MOMO Flyer wheel.

At the moment i just enjoy driving it around with the family and taking it on some local car meets etc.














Enjoy!
