New Project Junior

Post by Trevor Lloyd » Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:25 pm

so now that my gvt6 is done i need something new to keep me busy :)
And yes i know its not a gtv6 but its still something worth doing....
going to have a bit of fun turning this dead old lady into something funky and new
the idea is to make a 2l supper charged junior that is going to be track ready but is going to be a everyday road car :)

bit of history on the car :) first got it about 3 months back and have not done much on it as i needed to finish my gtv6 3l first... it had a bit of a hard life under someones tree for 5 years and took some beating from our grate sa weather :( not to mention a few good hail storms as well sadly so its in bad shape as you can see but thats the way we like them :)

i know the car will not be loved here seeing as its not a gtv6 but you guys are all so amazing i had to post it here anyways sorry :)

so after the long weekend and having some time to play with it iv managed to strip it down a lot hopefully soon il have it down to just the shell and can send it for sandblasting (yes Kevin i know you don't like the idea but i got to with this one)

and also played around a bit with the fitting of the injection and supercharger b4 taking it apart :)

Nice project car, you seem to have a pretty neat setup to work from. Look forward to seeing it on the track, hopefully soon.
