Just the parts would do mate !  Do you want yours modified ? lol

Id love to spend time in a wrecking yard over there.

All i need is Parts, Tools and something to eat and ill make whatever you want.

Id love to get my hands on the New Camaro and turn it into a " Proper Trans am " and not such a bodykitted Camaro......  that would take some money though.

I don't we could find that many BMW 's  in the junk yards around here, If you did I imagine they would be expensive. They sure do look good in your car though SEF.

kjkjkcjkcj, im sorry mate, i have no garage or cover to work in / under and at the moment the Uk is covered with snow and ice.  :'(

With light and cover i would be able to make more progress...... and then comes more pics.

Maybe its time we had an interlude.........




As for finding Bmw's in the yards over your way, im sure theres plenty more home grown cars to use, after all you guys have " all the toys " fitted to your cars...... ;)

This is a GREAT album.......... turn up the volume......  8)

So im doing the body and paint course, im in the finishing straight and facing my exams.

Today was a study day so i decided the best way to study was with some hands on experience.......... i havent done much to the car as ive been so busy doing other things and this course hasnt helped LOL.......
As it was...................



and now with a new clip that i got with a Z28 i broke up...............





Yes i know its another SBC, id love a 455 but theyre not easy to find here within a students budget.....  :'(  ( sorry mobile phne pics )
