Intro

Hi All, This is my first blog ever I will start by bringing up to speed on my 1969 2002 build. Last year after owning several modern Japanese and Euro performance cars I thought what I really wanted was an older project car. The 2002 Appealed on several levels with one being the fact I had only seen 1 on the road over several years of looking. As this is my first full build from scratch I may need to leverage the Brains trust that is 2002faq haha My shell was purchased middle of last year so the first few entries will bring the blog up to present

Car Leaves Melbourne and arrives Goldcoast

LATE LAST YEAR car Leaves Melbourne Car arrives at engineers for rotisserie build/Mounting. My first physical view of car, looks ok. Lots and lots to do. Car sits at engineers for nearly 2 months before he builds and fits Rotisserie Car is then transported while mounted to its new little home in my garage

Suspect Found

LAST YEAR Car has been found, after looking at several rust buckets I settled on this fellow. Car was described as rust free stating that all rust has been, cut, welded, lead rubbed and primed. My thought process is that im better off paying a similar amount for a rust free shell opposed to a rusted up complete car. The car is 2000km away and being a trusting fellow Ive bought sight unseen.
