Hello guy's and girl's,
This is the start of a slow build. Feel free to throw your input in.
I will be making fiberglass parts for this car, but this is what i'm starting with.

Some people will recognize this photo as being willowbank raceway.

Hello again,

I think it time for a updates on this car. Easter this year the car was pulled apart
back to the body, and that was when I discovered that the body was twisted.
so it was used as a parts car for my barina projects.

The barina was pulled apart in the following days, with the brakes, doors, boot lid,
and a heap more parts being swaped over. While i had the barina in peaces,
alot of things didn't make it back into the rebuild like piller gauges, shift light and
part of the stereo.

As for the 16v sohc 1.3L i had built for the car a year earlier, (as seen on TeamSwift)
It losed 30psi compseion in cylinder 2, for a unknowen reasion at this stage,
so the twincam motor was put in to get me on the road, as for the gearbox it is need
of a rebuild before i can use it again, so a barina 5 speed was used that came out of
the car a week or two earlier.

In July the car was Rwc and rego, the old gti shell was taken way loaded up with unwanted
parts and scraped.

In October the barina got a respray in silver with me learning to used some new tools.
It looks like i used hammer tone paint. It's now December and i'm just enjoying
driving my barina again.

Hello again,
Thanks for the compliments :D
Yes i'm doing all the work myself, I ask friends for help when I need
a 2nd pair of hands.
The inside is mostly stock, except for the flat floor in the rear.

You are so nice to your car, keeping it under a blanket to keep it warm. But this is Brisbane. Well done to make a rear wing.
