Ok, so I finally learned how to use this photobucket thing.Tired of hearing no pics didn't happen.
The BS is finally visible.Just to get up to speed w/ everybody else.
Here we go.

Picked up donor Dec 2006

Started teardown shortly after.

Rebuilt engine ,Made it nicey nice June 2007


I am currently finishing up donor parts and am down to the wiring.
Planning MK3 purchase January 2008.
Now the proof is in the pudding,
At this pace most of you will probably build 3 of these things before i'm done.
But thanks for keeping me updated with all of your valuable information,its making my project go well.
Thanks again,
Eric B.

Looking good! It'll be nice having most of the parts on a shelf when you get your kit.

I kept the title for DMV inspection purposes,just to show where all the parts came from,was offered a lot more for the car,just tried to prevent hassles in the future with my mk3 titling.

Make sure you adequatly label and package parts and bolts, you will forget where they are later and where they go.............

Too late, I already saw it. I hope it wasn't as clean as it looks in the pics. But I completely understand.

Wheels and tail lights will bring some good money.

Eric good move. I also had all the donor parts ready before kit arrived. Makes the build move along faster if only building and not rebuilding at the same time. Save everything till the car is done. Amazing at what you use on the cobra from the mustang.
