Looks are not the main focus more of a autocross/track build but they are a neat car that's becoming more and more rare.. One thing that's nice because it's a VW/Porsche 914 a lot of cheaper VW parts work on this thing vs Porsche which can be big $$$.

Also where is the best place to buy a JDM front clip from??

Short term goal is to get this stuff done by July/Aug.
1)car stripped to bare metal primed/sealed.
2) Fix any rust issues cut and weld new metal in, it's not bad for a car from the 71's that are known to be rust buckets.
3)Cut fender's and rear 1/4's and put GT Fiberglass wide body kit on, 7" wider in front and 9" wider in the back.
4) Get it running might do carbs and cam for now...efi on car is missing a bunch of stuff
5) Do interior might just paint and do some race buckets for now.
6)Chassis stiffening

Long Term goals
Do a STi version 7 or 8 spec C swap with 6spd
911 suspension swap and 5 bolt rims
front and rear sway bars
Roll cage but might try to do before this summer
Cage but might try to do by summerdepending on funds and timing!
