Grinding and hammering still to do but my roof no longer has a big gaping hole in it. Back to an 11 window instead of a 12 window now haha!

A man after my own heart!! The tubs just made me a LOT more interested in this resto, and I was already quite interested :evil:

Cant wait to see the stance on this bad boy, will you be going air or just slammed?
Stock is good, its just that low and fast is better!!
