If I was only 20 years old again and had the time.
Nice starting point.
Did somebody shoot the rear end with a shotgun?
What is with all the holes? Is that from pulling out dents or something?

Yes the holes are for a snaatcher, the shell&titlis a good start. I would be on it too if it were closer to me. Shell really dosen't look to bad.

If you had the knowlege of where and how it all goes together may be a deal in the working

i really want an BJ7 project, but would be very happy with a bug eye project. Just a little to far for me. Could save a ton if i got a bug eye, ( justification to wife) as I am sure the BJ7 will put me in the poor house.
dreaming again
Ok JP the answer is NO, my car is not painted, maybe soon,
waiting for the driveshaft, the machine shop is fitting the RX 7 flange, then the rear end will go in then maybe paint
Cheers Phil

Have fun, in terms of barn - I've seen that garage, I bet you can fit 6 Spridgets in there minimum. 4 on the right parked sideways, one on the hoist, one under.

Thought I had an XK 150 project but the guy wants blood. Restored price for one that needs restoration. Last restored almost 30 years ago professionally and not quite completed.
