As the title says, about 2yrs ago me and my son bought this car very cheap as it was in a sorry state, the picture when we got it doesn't look too bad but its had some work done to it to get it where it is today, not much money tho as most was cosmetic.  It was going to be used as a drift car but persuaded my son it was too good for that. 

First job was the water leak which I knew was the radiator so that was replaced to cure that problem. The previous owner had kept topping up with water so the whole system is just full of rusty water, I have managed to sort that out but a heater matrix is still needed as only the drivers side gets hot, its been flushed many times and still the same. The next job was to weld the cills up as they had the famous bubbles on them, that was sorted so the suspension was replaced as it was knocking on the front end, luckily the garage where my son works there was a second hand set taken off a customers car as he replaced with adjustable shocks.  The wheels had to get replaced as they were off a gs300 and looked well out of place on this car, there is a picture with them on..

Next job was to clean the whole interior as a dog had been in the car ands wow it took some getting rid of the hairs and smell.

next was to sort the bodywork out as it had many scratches and scuffs on both bumpers and mirror covers, so after spraying them and put back on it was given a full detail with Killerwaxx compounds and finished off with killerwaxx polishes and waxes, what an amazing job we did.. the pictures don't do it justice  and it will be back on the road from June 1st with one happy 18yr old driving it around...this car nearly ended up scrapped but was saved … I've added a few pics and one was when it was forsale before we got it and one when we got it then the rest is the present day
