Thanks guys. I will be doing all the corners I'm just tacking right now. Well, I start to tack and I end up doing the whole line.

Who needs a Locost when you have a Lowrider...

It leaves tuesday! Depending on the price of steel it should get me pretty close to breaking even on the car.

The width of the engine bay looks like it can take a V8 easily.
Heck, with some massaging of the firewall you could probably drop a V12 in there.

I vote for keeping the V12 lowrider :lol:

You know I thought about that. But I have way to many projects already and the all require all my time and money. Plus I need the scrap money. It is a shame though that car was SO straight never been in a wreck. Straight 25 year old cars are getting harder to find (guess I'm doing my part to help).

I'd post it up on a yota forum and see if someone want to buy the shell, you might get more $$ that way, I only got 20$ for my miata when I scrapped the shell.

Ya thats a good idea. I thought I'd get more than $20. I'll call the steel place and see what they might pay for it. and I'll post it on the celica forums and CL to see if someone wants to come get it.
