The tomtom split....*slowest build ever*

Postby Franz » Sun Jan 30, 2011 5:55 pm

Its a 52 standard...looks like it was a nice car until it got hit. The drivers side is smashed...But definately fixable. The good news is that it is really solid, and has most of its orignal parts. Rusty is cleaning it out right now.

Finished the first clean up this rig has had in a looooong time. Under all that dirt and junk I found a pretty solid rig as well as a fair amount of parts that weren't stolen from the car from it's years in the junkyard. As with most of Tom Tom's treasures, this one has a little crease on the side. I am going to pick up an old Oval baja donor so we can dissect and fit in a nice heater channel area. Why yes, I am looking for a drivers Split door, how did you know??? Smile Smile Smile
