Here's a project my older bro and I recently picked up. Progress is going good. So I decided to make a build thread to share with my fellow CRSX'ers.

Long Story Short: Brothers turbo rsx took a dump. Parted it out, kept the motor. Picked up a 1968 RHD Austin Cooper shell from a buddy that kept it sitting in the back of his shop for 12 years. Condition is not too bad, but we are happy with the shell + it already has an authentic zeemax wide body.

Alot of plans for this.
Stay Tuned for updates. :bow:

have you tried fitting it in yet to see what needs to be fabbed? should be fun, i had fun with my eg
with the subframe conversion it should fit fine. other than that, i had to order a new one piece front clip that is extended 3inches.
