An I was thinking that your tea was to strong. Look what it has done to the cowl and around the window! Dude my hat is off to ya for saving that one. I couldn't have done it.

Well today i got the Rear end together, the body shell is an 80, but as it came as a bare shell and i didnt have the correct rear bumper and lights for this year , but i did have some from a 76, it only seemed logical to swap the rear ends.

I didnt replace the whole rear panel, just fabricated the rear light holders etc.......

Anyway sorry that the pic was taken at night, but id only just finished....



80 to 76 ( in my case ).

Well , ive been doing a bit more, my biggest problem is funding, nearly everything has to be fabricated from what i can find.

Mechanical Animal suggested that i make the rear seat back fold down like it does in the Third and Fourth gen cars, so with that in mind, this is what i did today.







Alot more work ahead, but you get the idea of it all.......  ;)

Thanks Mike, the rear shelf panel will be extended to meet the rear seat and the whole area is going to recieve some strengthening, i cant believe how much Narrower the later seats are !

The Blue on the floor was me experimenting with different colours!!

You have lots of room to tub the rear end with those seats and not have to worry about seat fitmant issues
