I've been here a while but really haven't posted very much so I thought its about time I
throw some pictures of my ride up in this thread. This is my '84 brat
I picked up a few years ago for $800. It was black and most of the paint had
the primer coming through and there was a fair amount of rust spots
scattered around. The right front fender, grill and a corner of the
hood were smashed and the brat had minor dings all the way around it.
I found a new fender and got a decent hood and grill from a junkyard
and proceeded to fix the dents, remove the rust and painted some high
quality paint on this thing.I had the wheels sandblasted and painted them black
then added some trim rings to them. I got lucky mechanically though as the
engine and transmission run pretty much flawless. I did have to
replace all the brakes, master cylinder and front axles but really
that is about all. This thing will run 80 down the highway all day
long!. The interior still needs a little help. It is complete but has
a very cracked dash. The seats have small rips on the sides and the
carpet has some stains on it but nothing I cant live with right now.
Maybe a next summer project.
So far I am very happy with the way things are turning out.
