Finally the car is getting it shape back.
It was very rusted and a lot of panels needed to be replaced.
Now we only need to re-skin the doors and the nose needs to be put on.

Pre-fitting the body kit and adjust the flashing light.
And modify the new hood.
Soon it will be off to the paint shop :D

+ you are meant to remove those white plastic covers on the track rod ends before fitting.

A really good point guys!!!
Actually They have not bin fitted yet.
The cover is still on them because i ordered the wrong ones.
But i wanted the wheels to be connected so i can drive the car to another location.
But if you would not have told me i would have installed them like this :oops:

Thanks.
