About the build:

I am qualified mechanic so it’s a given to tinker on cars. I have owned the car for 8 years. I used to drive the car as a daily when I was a apprentice. I have always wanted to do a ground up build. I mainly built the car to do tarmac rally’s and hill climb events in, So I ripped the old motor out and imported a engine package from Japan and slowly chipped Away at it for the last 4 years by my self in my little car port at home. I have had a little help from friends along the way with paint and a couple of fab work things, but most of the work has been done by me at home in my little carport.
