Hey guys! I wanted to take this chance to introduce myself to the community and share my build process (all the while tapping into the endless experience here mwhaha...). My names Peter, I recently moved to Cochrane....from Calgary so really only down the street... I've always had an urge to race rally cars since I have been young and finally I have my own space and money to turn it to reality! Living where I am there are plentiful opportunities to race that are just in my backyard. I plan on volunteering more while I'm in the process of the build and also entering into TSD's (they seem soooo fun and I finally have something that I can toss down the dirt roads haha). My goal at the moment is to have a logbooked car for Kananaskis in November, however my original mindset was for cochrane rally in 2013, so I'll see what I can pull off! I'm just looking to have fun at the moment and learning to drive what I have (as you will see it doesnt look like much but it does look like fun)

It runs!! and the interior (sad to say) is decent..ITS COMING OUT!
To do list for general maintenance:
1) Bot-ox for the droopy eye
2) Viagra for the floppy shifter(in the form of new bushings)
3) Tampax for the leaky shifter seal...pun intended...
Other than that...she's pretty decent
Working on stripping it and getting cage measurements done (i've read the reg's a handful of times and as you'll learn soon, I don't do alot before I research the hell out of it, so I had plenty to keep me going while I was day dreaming my build haha)
Wish me Luck!
