EFI Design's Latest Project.....

Well my company got it's first project car......and let me tell you it needs some major TLC. We will be doing a ton of work to clean up the interior and exterior, as well as servicing and adding some "character" to this ride. I'll be back with pics from time to time to show what we come up with. Here's some pics from Day 1.

I must have missed an earlier thread. Tell me, again, about your company.

Look at those filthy wheels!! I don't even let my daily driver get that dirty. Shame on that owner, they don't deserve such an incredible car.

Torch, actually the rims are being replaced. All 4 are scuffed and scraped real bad. The interior is stained and dirty. The paint was covered with oxidation and hairline scratches from being kept outdoors for the last 3 years at a boat harbor where the owner lives. There are some mechanical problems with the right & left engine banks, and the body needs some touch up here and there. These pics are just from buffing it out and washing it. I'll be back with the rest of the project results in about 8 weeks.

Stanleyp, I'll tell you guys alla bout my company as soonas I"m a supporting vendor here.

redls1c5, I know it looks bad, but the owner is 86 and has a medical condition as of late. I give him credit for having the balls to buy such a car at his age and drive it almost everyday for the last few years. The car has 11k on it and has been taken care of as best he could.....I should've helped him more.

sweetangel, 01cav, Derek Thanks. Performance wise, I want to get the check engine lights to go away. I may be looking at adding a Kreiseigg or Tubi exhaust system to the car at the very most. Other than that, it'll only be service items....fluids, brakes, and intake filters. Oh...and I will be adding some 19/20" wheels from iForged.

Pat, Come on over....I'll take you for a killer ride...for real!
