    2. Description
      Hi all. Here's a couple of pics for you to look at. I bought the GTX about 3 year ago. I was going to do as much as I could myself and get it on the road. A bit too much for me. After a while I realised I wanted it back to original so left it alone until I could afford to get it done properly. Finally put in the shop just before xmas 2011. I'll add some more later of when it was in my garage and getting taken apart. Before I woke up to myself.
      Just put up some photos of when I took it apart in my garage. Bolted all the main bits back on before I took it to the resto shop. I've got the motor and box in storage and will send off for rebuild when the body is almost ready.

      Added some more photo's today, 11 April. Project really moving along now. Thanks for looking.

      Coming home Monday 13 November. Now the fun starts.

      Feb. 2013. Sound deadener in. Ac/heater box in. Engine back together and awaiting paint and install.

      Xmas 2013 - Jan 2014. Engines in brake and fuel lines back on. A lot of fiddlly stuff to get through now. Rear axle has new suregrip and brakes. Still finishing off front calipers.

      Bit more progress on the calipers.
