Pro Touring 808 Coupe

I've got a build thread going on JNC, thought I'd share it over here too.

I will be brief. I bought this car in 2009, found it about 20km from home in a local classified ad. It wasn't until September of 2013 that I started working on the car. It will be a pro touring style of build. My ideas are ever changing so I won't be posting any of my plans for the car, just updates as they happen.

The day I picked it up

There was some rust... this is a very small sample, there was heavy rusty everywhere.

December was a write-off with travelling to PRI in Indianapolis, Christmas, and skiing in QC/NY, so not much was done.

I got a much better (albeit way older) camera that seems to deal with the poor lighting conditions, pictures should be better from now on.

January 2014 - The cutting is mostly done now.

Keep up the good work Dave. I remember Joe telling me how your car was in as bad of condition as my R100. Glad you decided to build it up. I may have to borrow that dolly you built for my R100 someday.

Step 1: Identify rust.

Step 2: Cut 90% of car off.

Awesome.
