Wish they went with signal red :P

it needs so much labour though :(

I worry about the floor rust, seems to me that he's done the body, and then found rust in the floor that's scary eg: firewall needing to be pretty much remade and he's called it quits

He was originally asking $2K for it .... Note sure how that turned into $6K......

I think your conclusion is right Mr Methuisella. For $2K, if you had the space it would be worth it for the spares.
