Wow in the pics it looks really good! That's really not bad for $500 you could probably part it after your done using it as beater and get some money back.

The front bumper is held on with staples? :agreed:

Ahhh, so this is what your GA looks like. I kept seeing you talk about the 5 cylinder mod on it, over on 60degreeV6. :agreed:

You gonna leave the outside as is? IMO, I'd nab some new headlights, debadge and clean up the outside to have a clean beater at least.

Also, welcome to the black GA crew, brah!

i want to change out the head lights at least. the pass side one is busted and sunk in

besides the front hood and trunk lid it's rust free. so if i can find a cheap trunk and bumper i may go a bit farther with it in the looks department

the bumper is also torn i will try to get better pics of the cosmetic issues tomarrow

he is currently building an engine from the parts i had should be making 300+ wheel power when done
