Smile i started stripping today

finally, i finally started to strip. got really excited too...

the RS has now had most of the interior removed, just a few thigs left to remove. amazing how simple it is really.

there was not much in the way of oily bits to start with, so just have to get the brake booster off. leaving the wiring loom and glass. gotta get the gearbox outta the boot, and the back bumper off, and that is it. oh, gotta out the nosecone back on. hhmm...quad headlight performance variation on a standard family hack...sounds a bit familiar...

then it is off to the panel shop on 5th august. hope to get some pics next weekend, so will have something to post soon.

for christmas, i want a registered, running RS2000. then it is out to hunt rice...and bogans in commodes.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Thumbs up edxr6wgn

hope to pinch the digital camera from work one night this week and take some happy snaps. looks pretty ordinary at the moment, but will be good to have a pictorial histpry of the car throughout its rebuild. hoping to have it by christmas.

do you have any opther pics of yours...that last one was a bit small.

What about bogans in Fords? I'm often called a Bogan, though at 55 i still think of myself as a Bodgie. The difference? Bodgie's have more class. Hehehehe

Long live the black jeans, studded belts and checkered shirts.
