Picked up this wagon last year, had one when i was younger and always loved them. Was going to put a rotor in it but its a matching number car so it will stay original and im about to get another wagon for those shenanigans after this build.

Apart from that rear quater skin and the passenger side front of the sill panel the shell was surprisingly good.

Scored this quater off of a wreck that i bought with a mate. The pillar was pushed in 30mm and mangled so was replaced with cut from wreck.
