    Don`t worry about the mess it`s in, just get stuck in and do it. there`s quite a few of us in the same boat as far as rebuilds go.

    been flat out on it for 3 weeks,,,getting it onto the mr2 was fun,,,but its on and ive started the body work,,, think it has about 20 layers of paint so thats a pain,,,tho old cellulose paint just clogs the discs,,seems like it was orange originally,,is there any way to trace where the body came from or was made?

    There should be some identification numbers under the bonnet ( front ) on the left hand side, looking at the front of the car. on the bulk head if you can call it that. i`m sure one of the member`s has a pic of where it should be, unless it has been cut out for mod`s of course.

    Hi Carl - it means you have an early Automotive Designs Mark 1 shell, and that whoever was responsible for changing the dymo tape numbers on the mould had got their act together (mine is number 125, but I've met 2 others with that number!) There was a Nova for sale up North a year or three back that was sort of laid over a cut down MR2, the seller had got so far before giving up. Will yours need an IVA?
    It's a 52 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!
