that's well rotten.... good score with the parts though.... is it at your dads unit Adam?.... if so, before you weigh the shell in, any chance I could cut a few repair panels out of it?

Definitely a bonus and what a sharp eye you have - nice one.
Are others still looking to buy a moon roof ?

Bit more of an update, close to having these fitted and finished, nicer looking than rear seats built for borrowers. :lol:

Having had an issue with the coilover conversion since it was fitted, namely the rear spring on the coilover rubbing against the body some sort of fix was needed. Bring on a bit of minor fabrication and brackets were made. Nice and easy clean fix and now no more rubbing and squeaking.

Nice work Adam, especially the suspension brackets 0-0
Is that strut brace off a FC? I've been thinking of getting one.... they will fit a FB if the holes are opened out a bit.
