Well this is my new project for next year. Some of you will know the plans for it but for those that don't and this wont be one for purist's

This was given to me as a 22 birthday present and i was unsure of what to do with it the wheels started rolling in my head and plans begin to happen for it

Some of the specs and parts that i already have for it

1968 hornet shell
New floors in the front
New sills inner and outer both sides
2 new wings
New front panel
A panels both sides
Doors rebuilt
Boot floor repair
rear arches repaired
Heel board repair both sides
Side window panels under the window both sides
Scuttle repair on drivers side
Inner hinge repair panel both sides
Bonnet repaired
Boot lid repaired and modified
Deseamed bumpers front and rear
Custom bootlid for L.E.D number plate light
Recaro front seats with back seats trimmed to match and door panels the same
Full bolt in roll cage from Rollcentre in the uk
KAD 7.9 vented discs and billet calipers
wilwood master cylinder
Spax shocks
Loads of billet stuff from DSN
(Subframe mounts for the rear
