Disassemble!!!

This project has been in progress or a bit but I am working on getting back to build threads and sharing more what we do. A little history…

1975 2002 with early bumpers
Orignally an automatic but swapping to a turbo M42 and a bunch of other fun stuff.
This build is one where nothing is being held back. If metal needs to be cut to make something fit better then it is being done.
