Some of you may know the shell that i am using as it had a big spec list as well when it was on the road.
99-MH-200 is the reg it belonged to a guy called Paul Worthingthon.
I only know of the spec the car had and would like to find out why the car was stripped for parts.

So far most of these parts are not installed yet.
Only started on Sunday with the build.

Cannot wait until I finish this build.
Have had great fun in the car before all this goes in so here's hoping for no problems :)
Feel free to give any input or advice towards the build any help will be welcomed :)

Paulie broke the car for parts because it was worth a lot more in parts than as a full car, that was a year or two ago when altezzas were worth very little
