It needs a little work like brakes leaking and the power steering has a leak ( the previous owner told me that the car did not have power steering  ) also needs a paint and carpet.

I got sick of the paint so i tohought the carpet needs replacing , so i took the seats out and all of a suden the dash was out and now all the body mount bolts are out. Looks like the body wants to come apart from the chassis.

Then the paint started to come off, i got so involved in doing it i did not take pics every day. The hood had some bubbles in it and it looks like the primer they put on was very poorly prepared, once i started to scrape it off it was like it was Crystallised.

The rear deck had a rack on it and could be seen with the paint on, so off that came aswell,



The front clip has been replaced at some stage(i will go through the dockets i have to find out when)


The sides are all factory with one repaint.

Yes they might go on to the white one or on to the EH ute that has HQ front and rear ends.
