LOL great stuff.

Here is a little bit of an update
The headlights I picked are from a 300zx z32


I cut out the the new headlight holes

I also added side skirts from a Ford taurus wagon and started filling in the front grill area. The rear lower valance is an old e30 body kit I had laying around for years.

I picked up the engine that I scored on craigslist for only $1500 for the pair of motors and the tranny. I managed to get both in the back of my Suzuki all was good till we got home and found that one of the engines poured 3 qts of oil in to the carpet and spare wheel well. I'm quite excited that this has a turbo as it will be the first turbo car I have ever owned.
