Go for it Mitch.
The more GTS's there are out there the better for all :lol: :lol:

At the moment, I that is unless I find another colour I like is for Bella to go pale yellow or gold with the current striping.

Cheers
Rob

Brett i had a play today now i am committed with the removal of deadener this is the easy weight to get out of it,and the fact that it half way up the doors it looked fugley. Now the 30kgs that hangs around the lower rib cage is another story :lol:.

mate, seriously, i weighed the deadener out of my car (well, what i could weigh, as some 'disappeared' while sandblasting the whole body).
it weighed 18.5 kg.... no BS. i reckon it would have been over 20kg all up.
how much would u spend on chasing the HP needed to lug that around....?

Hi PR91

yp i got it off with a air sander using 80 grit sticky disc's $39 super cheap works well. i used 20 discs but it was 3 inches above the door crease. 70% of the door and suprise :shock: little rust in front doors none in the rear ones, i left the bog alone in the rear quarters :lol: i dont want to know.it looks as if new sills have been put on at some stage.

Brett,
Yes to posting a yellow GTS (warwick yellow, similar but lighter than yellowperils)
I'm saving my pennies for a new engine, whatever turns up :shock:

Cheers
Rob
