I would like to fix metalwork and do some upgrades:

- lower susspension and alloy wheels

- front signal lights from Capella

- electronic meter

and register as a monument.

 

When i get my car back from tinsmith I have to remove interior and repair some places at the floor, then I would like to secure the floor and closed profiles. I have to replace fuel tank and exhaust system.

 

Sorry for my bad English.

 

Greetings, ArteK.

Beautiful 626.  That's a hatchback correct?  Your English is very good.  That's a lot of nasty rust.  Yuck!  Can't wait to see what it looks like when repaired.  Steering column cover and steering wheel look a bit out of place.  Different color.

What a unicorn.

 

Clear corners, euro headlights, all red euro tails, all 4 mudguards, headlight washers, euro sterring wheel, euro front bumper....the list just goes on.

 

Aside from the engine being a little outdated, you have a flawless gem sir.

 

The capella corners won't fit, you'd have to go crazy and swap the enite front end.

 

P.S.

 

Swap in an F2T so I can have your camshaft ;)

Yes, it is hatchback, or liftback. Steering column cover and wheel lock are OEM, I know they have different color but so it must be i think.

Thx. It is normal version, I'd like to have some j-spec or a-spec gadgets. I think corners like that will fit to my car without any work, except for some wire compatibility. Engine? I like it and like it being a little outdated :).

 

I'm just get back from tinsmith and here are some spy photos:

Repairs look really good.  Can't even tell there was ever damage.  The primer helps hide that.  Looks brand new under there.  Congratulations!

I agree, especially when you stay in front of fenders. This is no primer, this is lacquer - photo was taken with flash, this is why you can't see properly.

 

I can't wait to start work in the garage and of course make some test drive through the city.

Looks good.  Now that you got the rust all cleaned up what's next?

Hehe, the fun is just about to start.

 

On saturday I'd like to start scratching car floor, replace exhuast and fuel tank. Then I have to secure floor and closed profiles, mount interior. Next disassemble suspension, metallize and replace some parts.

 

There is much work to do.
