I dragged....actually I had to shove it in kicking and screaming (locked rear wheel) ......the SR into my shop over the weekend. I thought I would go outside and start taking a peak at what I have.

These are coming off and going in the trash:

I think this will detail up very nicely:

When I popped the hood imagine my surprise:

On the floor of a non-weather proof trunk take a look at what was attached: should I go about fixing that? Oh I know...GUT IT!

So the fun begins. There are lots of big gaps between panels that I don't like. The hood feels real flimsy. The rear trunk has no hinges. The doors line up terrible! So much to do. Looks like I will have a busy winter.

Thanks for the offer. its pretty complete. I will look into the cost of those P1800 lights but last time they were crazy expensive so I will likely look for alternatives

I am considering selling this project as my bones are just getting too old and I am now enjoying smaller projects.

See my ad on The Samba.

Who knows...maybe I will finish it.
