Major updates I'll be back with pictures soon.
Things done since last post: replaced sun roof, fixed vacuum lines, picked up a rear window, found door started to sand and primer, new temp exhaust, emissions test passed, new clutch slave exploded on dyno haha, grill, seats, gauges, and other little things. Been so busy working on it now that I got a job I forgot to update. New pictures coming soon
