have you thought about making a little trailer or camper out of the section you cut out?


no, as I think they look terrible.. haha. but that is my take on it.

it will be chopped apart quite a bit regardless so I can keep my car looking factory by using the nce rear corners for a smoother finish. I hate the nissan/toyo chops you see here where they jsut slam a flat plate in, doesnt flow well

I agree completely - I think that's the difference between doing it right or doing it as easy as possible.

That's one way to get at the exhaust system... Looking forward to seeing how the back end comes out.

Alright, Back from Canada. was a good month off.
been a bit of a slow start. jsut sorting a mig welder out to start tacking it together.

I began today making templates for the front of the rear doors to fill the gap after the hinges are gone and hold it in place.

How wierd do the doors look hanging there..

pulled all the gear out of the door so I can begin cutting the panels for fitting.

Another cut line:
