Default My F47 Official Build Thread

Bringing it home



Got it home



Step One



I had to cut the hinges to get the hood off without mangling it. With the hood off I pulled on the rad support-ish area while thinking what am I going to have to do to get this apart.

Bam, ****ing thing was just sitting there, flipped it off



Pulled the rear fenders off which were horribly re-attached sometime in the early 70's.





Custom cab vent / race lightening



Pulled the box off



Dem leafs



And thats it, cleaned the inside out a bit

Maybe,

I sold the Fox to fund the Miata. There was no other mazda thing, I bought a 323 a few years ago for $125 and beat the crap out of it, sold it for $300 or 500 or something a year later. I sold my MGB a few weeks ago, never did anything with it, never had any solid plans or desire for it.
