    The body is in the paint shop, being prepared back to original spec in original colour Polaris (silver).

    The running gear has been stripped and is also being repainted/restored (by myself). New bushes, brake lines, shocks.

    The paint shop is Melvin Lee in Butterworth, the mechanic is yours truly. I am also doing all the refurb & assembly on suspension and electrical system...will take a while...

    This is what original turbo rear arches look like without the fibreglass flares...a roughly spot-welded closing panel to allow for much wider rubber.
    This is original 1974 Munich Welding by Bavarian Craftsmen....

    And here's a modern Garrett in place of the original eberspacher/KKK lump...I have the originals, but it's completely shot through running unbalanced.
