yeah for now, i have everything here to fix it so it seems silly to sell, even though its not really a nessesary vehicle to keep because the work truck serves all needs etc.
il panel/paint it/fix rust etc and retrim front seats, if i still dont want it after that il just sell it on still for another 4-5k..........

and i can keep all my sets of rims.......

so, yet again im shocking between updates.......as a daily it got kinda used\abused........ so!!! as of jan 2017....... it sat in the yard alone......

WOULD YOU LOT BELIEVE........... IMMA KEEP IT.

a certain brendan convinced me i need this in my life.

between my puppy and my grom i realsised i needed a reliable form of transport, that can take both. outside the expensive upholstery.

its at joshs place atm getting all rust cut out and his flatmate has kindly agreed to p&p the thing....it helps i have a whole thai front end ready to bolt on...

carpets already bought for sweet fuckall..... and i previously bought a lovely A15 running bike carbs and a stainless exhaust that wil end up in this toy very soon. josh borrowed it and ensured it was working mint so bullet dodged there!!!!


plans are factory "off white" and standard ute black bumpers with jdm indicators.

Really?
Are a Mira and a 1200 the same width?

Popped round to josh's yesterday to provide liquid incentives and there he was welding away dealing to the last of the front end behind valance!
Looked around and both doors have been stripped and sealed again ready for some skimming of bog once Josh fizzes up the pinholes and holes where door mirrors were at some point in time.
One rear quarter is also looking good in a sealer coat.
