    This is about the restoration / build of my car.

    In February 2017 i bought this car from the auction in Japan.
    It cost a restless night but is was worth it.

    After 2 months of daily tracking the RORO ship, i finally could pick her up in the port of Amsterdam.

    Auction sheet said that she was classified as an R.
    Driver seat was replaced by a bucked seat.
    No rear seats.
    Bolt in roll cage.

    Perfect car for me :confused:

    Exhaust was leaking.
    Tyres were completely dry.
    Rust on the brake disk.
    When the car comes on boost, the boost is not controlled and as a result, fuel cut.
    Gearbox leaking oil.

    Only 96.000 km / 60.000 mls.
    Rust free.
    Car VX tells me that in march of 2008 the car was last registered.
    That complies with the state of the brakes, tyres, faded interior and paint.


    After a view weeks with some test driving and lots of thinking;

    The plan is to convert her from RHD to LHD.
    And while I convert the steering I want to weld in a FIA approved roll cage.
    I doubt whether I will ever have the funds to go and rally her.
    But I would love to build her like a rally car.

    Test fitting and off to powder coating.

    Try to post some more pictures of this restoration later on.

    @hct - any chance of a detailed copy of those rotisserie plans please? Thinking of making a set up to start the workshop prep for my future project.

    Cheers
