I think we've all been there, good luck!

[]Max Scarcello

Hit a financial roadblock, hoping I can get it into the body shop within the next three weeks! I will post some more updated pictures.

[]William Thieme

Any updates? I'm eager to see what the body shop does with it!

[]Max Scarcello

Yes, it is a original color so I'm going to keep it the same

[]Jason Kurrass

Are you going to paint it the same color?

[]Max Scarcello

thanks

[]Jason Kurrass

I like it

[]Max Scarcello

It's a gold metallic

[]Jason Kurrass

What color is it? Like a bronze?

[]John Dyste

Put it back together stock and fix stuff as it breaks. Since you have the engine out I might do this the crossmember/shocktower reinforcement detailed here. Koni shocks are also on sale at IPD right now. Poly suspension bushings are available if you need to replace yours. vclassics.com/archive/qxmemb.htm

[]Max Scarcello

I think down the road i will investigate more upgrades, but for now it will remain stock as I'm still only 16 and don't have the funds. Is there any cheaper modifications you suggest?

[]John Dyste

There are a lot of good resources available for these cars. Mine is running Megasquit fuel injection in place of Djet.

[]Max Scarcello

Sure is a underrated design for its time, car is completely stripped and engine is coming out next week. Will post some new pictures soon.

[]William Thieme

What a fantastic car. A design equalling many italian exotics of the day, in my opinion. Can't wait to see where you take it.
