looking good I love to see a well executed resto mod project. It's nice to see what looks to be quality work happening.

I never cease to be amazed by the shite quality bodges lots of owners and plenty of "professionals" try to pass off as acceptable and safe work when I come across them.

Drifters or for the most part banger races as I like to label most of them are the worst by far IMHO, they seem to think because a car is only for track use it can be full of downright dangerous shoddy work.

Respect for putting the effort in to save this car from its previous dubious mods. I'm not a fan of V8 swapping any rotary car, (although I can see the appeal and what petrol head doesn't love a V8) but in this case its already done so you may as well make sure its done right.

Thanks for the reply, although I am mainly into drifting as sport you are right it's a drift car so a bodge is ok seems to be a running theme, if it didn't come with a v8 I certainly wouldn't put one in but as it was ther and working on it I've grown to like it (na 20b when I dream) 🤗

Currently through last stages of buying a house at the moment so really haven't touched it but here is how it stands now looking sad for it self and still with that paint

Awesome don't get me wrong I also love drifting as a sport. I just hare the banger racing element that seems to be taking over and don't get me started on those "Missile" cars.

I still think drifting is what killed most of the FC coupes when they were super cheap and not worth the cost of a rebuild at the time in most peoples eyes.

I'm also bitter and twisted as I sold my last FC to a "drifter" who ruined the car and killed the engine, then when I was looking to buy it back to save it he wanted 10 X what I sold him it for with no interior as it was now a drift spec car. ha ha and breathe.

Whilst i appreciate the skill i no longer watch at the shows seen it all before but what really pees me off if people drifting on a trackday...had some numpty attempting to slide in front  of me and i nearly t boned him. Next lap hes in the tyres and session red flagged...thanks mate your time and money is obviously worth more than mine !
