  • my build thread

    Ok here it goes, this is my thread never done one so here is the start. Some of you my know the shell but that is all it was, was a shell. Everything i swapped over. wiring, motor, drive line, interior,hatch, hood, lights, everything was from my old black DA. check out my old pics and you will see. so i just want people to know the work I put into it and did not just buy a car an claim i did it all so its clear, thanks to jasper, 80baby, for the help an rollinmyda for help cutting the rear fog light, and my two sons for their help . thanks jasper for snapping the pics.

                            Are those the Black JDM folding mirrors you are selling in your for-sale thread?

                            Also keep up the good work! Always thought about converting mine to RHD.
