Looks like a good project! What are those wheels off of...? I like them!

I have no idea. Never seen them before. They're 13s. They'll be for sale in a couple months after the car is completely painted. Deciding on new wheels at the moment.

Those wheels are called "pepperpots". I believe those are made by ATS, but check markings.

nice body work. i dont agree with getting ride of the aluminum molding but as they say "to each its own" also those wheels wear considered really cool in late 70's early 80's if you dont want them i would be interested in buying them.

Almost getting ready to be prepped for paint. All bodywork is almost complete.

Also, ordered an Eisenmann exhaust for it. Should sound glorious![/img]

Great pics!  I am doing the same and want to see if you have fabricated brackets for the front air dam and how you mounted.  I have fabricated and welded the front bumber holes.  Also, i purchased the air dam from DTM.  Yours?

It's been a while since I've updated this.

 

Got the outside done (99.9%) and now on to the interior.  Here's the outside so far.

 

Next up...Eisenmann Exhaust and BBS E76 wheels getting put on within the next few weeks! :)
