hi guys, been browsing for a few weeks now and finally joined up.
short back story, i bought i 1980 1200 injected t 25 turbo ute. proceeded to wrap it round a pole. bent chassis and body is ruined.
so i bought another bunky 1985 ute and will be stripping it down and restoring it.
i will be building it up over the next few months, hopefully not extended it past 6 months.

so list goes-
1170 motor that has been recently rebuilt
fuel injection
t25 turbo
5 speed box
4.11 diff gears

have a set of disc brakes for the front and a brake master from another model im unsure of.

anyone done a turbo conversion them selves feel free to offer advice as ive never done anything on turbo cars.

anyway pleasure to be along and ill no doubt be robbing ideas of some of you
cheers
kennyboy

welcome

Steal anything you like, and be prepared to add your own flair that can be 'leveraged' by others

It's a public forum - if anyone wants to horde their ideas they should not put them up here

Again Welcome

Thanks guys, I've started stripping the project car down and had quiet a good look at the body/chassis and am pretty pleased with how little rust seems to be in it. And something I overlooked before even buying the car, the dash is in perfect condition so I don't need to stuff around trying to find/repair one.
Has anyone on here tried vinyl wrapping the dash pad or something else to update the look a bit?

last the damage-

pretty severly twisted the whole body and compressed the trans tunnel. pretty well never possible to get re-regoed.
on the plus side i get the chance to start from scratch which is what i wanted to do really.
