G'day guys and gals,
Have finally bitten the bullet and started an LJ build forum to replicate a ripper two door I had as a young lad in mid 80's until someone wrote it off by running up the back. Had a stinking hot red 202 with triples and went like the clappers.
Details are as per follows:
- lc rolling sheel, 80% parts there, partly converted to LJ (dash, taillights, grill)
- no motor gearbox but have a M21 lying around and will get a blue/black 202 build (have a set of triple webers ready to bolt on)
- hope to do as much as I can as I am a signwriter by trade and will use "The Marty Report" as inspiration.
I will be asking lots of q's to tap into the incredible amount of knowledge available from forum members.
My first question straight off the bat is should do bodywork/paint first then complete project or get up and running in primer?. My concern is that if paint is smick, it will get damaged sorting out engine bay, brakes, electrical s ect.
As I am a novice it may take a while to post photos, but will start with rolling shell I will be working with (got wheels later on) and a photo of my pride and joy from 1984 before being written off in the background on garage wall
