    Welcome to the Nasty Progress section...Nice looking project you have and an RS too. I also like the subtle low rise cowl hood...it looks close to the hieght of the 1st gens and I like it. Looks like you dove right in and are making good progress. Keep us posted.

    ...and here she is minus the rear end...it actually went pretty smoothly..it is the long hours at work that are killing me, just about 3 hours a day before I have to head back to work each day. I also got the chance to straighten out the garage a bit so at least the wife is happy about that....

    Looks like your moving right along with your project, sounds like you will need to replace alot of the same sheet metal i did with the exception of the roof. The many hours of labor, the $, The bandaids and many cold beers will pay off in the long run. Welcome and good luck to you on your project. :bowtie:
