Been along few weeks but finally picked the wag up today!
Was like 400mph winds on the rimutaka hill so towing was well beyond sketchy to say the least, nonbraked trailer and non vented discs up front on the Holden made for some hairy moments, but got home in one peice with only mildly stained undies so its all wins!

And up front

Yay rust!! :deadhorse:

So its not as bad in some part as I thought when I went for a look, although I'm yet to have a good dig about. Basicly both sills need replacing, drivers floor and part of drivers 'a' pillar. Should be able to get away with patching most of the rest, but we shall she how it pans out when I start getting into it!

So grand total came to $1000 cash money, which included a couple of extra goodies..

Ute diff

Image

Fairly tidy coupe dash (has a small notch in it)

Image

Two sand blasted front guards, both pretty mint!

Image

All up I'm pretty happy, guna be a fuck load of pannel work to hit but will be all worth it in the end!
Got these bad boys too, off my old AE86 which I plan to run, 14x6.5 ssr's.. anybody know what model these are?

Image

Anyhow, that is all for now, work will commence early next year, have to dig out under my house and extend my garage before I can fit the fucker in and be able to work on it/get around it, so next few week ends are going to be taken up with that shit... Although thats slightly off topic there will be pics to come!!

I know what you mean about the wind on that hill! I think those wheels are called Formula Stars, or Star Formula, I forget which. They look pretty sweet!

The ute diff is a good score. They can take quite a beating. Mine has withstood much abuse.
