    Thank you for the feature Fatlace!
    Awesome work by a good friend and fellow local boy Anton Ngata of AN Films.
    A very special thanks to my wife Ana for allowing me to put this car together and Lee for the storage space.

    FYI: ITB’s and OS Giken Final drive are future mods
    There’s still no working Dyno or experienced tuner on island. Currently in the process of figuring out how to get it tuned when I get my hands on a set of cones.
