Now for the pictures! Here's the first day I saw the car, with a glimpse of my old daily in the back.



Although intentions to keep things stock for three years were in the cards, I'm too much of an idiot to follow through with those sorts of intentions.



And, thus - parts began to pile up.

As comfy as the stock seats are, as soon as plans to track the thing came about I knew I needed to invest in a seat. Not terribly pleased with how off the shelf seats 'suit' a fully-furnished interior - I decided to have a beat up SPG reupholstered in matching leathers and stitching to carry the factory theme.





I actually won't have it back from being reupholstered for about a week yet. Here's a sneak peak at the wrapped shell to compliment the black leathers.

Here's a couple pictures that outline the parts in question!

Big thanks to Eric at Teknotik in Toronto who's been bringing things in non-stop for me lately. Has been a massive help, and runs an amazing shop!



Subframe collars, brakes, studs, etc.



Hose adapter, and sandwich plate for the Defi's sake.

I suppose I'll sum it up with one last photo of the ol' girl which will wrap up the introductions for this thread. Progress should be plentiful as I've got nothing going on in this dismal winter months of Southern Ontario! You expect plenty of photos from the track as soon as the weather fines up.

I'm got terrible OCD which often leaves me very little patience when it comes to buying parts. If I get it in my head that I need something, as soon as it's financially plausible for such a purchase I'll take the plunge.

Keeps the mail man busy if nothing else, haha!

Amazing, Rustbucket! Really interested to see this come together. And as Scotty said, that won't take long.

Where do you track it? Might have to come see this baby in the sheet metal!!!

:hi5:

Edited to add: Thanks for the reference for Teknotik. Looking them up now.
