    The End of an Era

    Now that I got the 3000GT "done" I figured it was time to dispose of the Stealth shell, since all it was doing was taking up space at this point and I had already robbed all the stuff I could off of it. It really hurt my soul to have to come to this but it is done.

    At the start of the day



    First removed the core support



    Then the front frame rails



    Windshield



    Roof



    Firewall. I probably should have done that in two pieces because that sumbitch was heavy.



    Main floor pan



    Rear seat tray



    While cutting the quarter windows out the remainder of the car slipped and fell off the stands



    I flipped over the remainder to make it easier



    Cut that into 3 pieces



    Gone.



    Cleaned up



    Actual parking spot for the Lancer



    Now at least if I run across a project/flip car I can get it without feeling like I have "too many" cars in the driveway. It feels so odd to not have that car any more. The car lives on in the 3000, but it isn't 100% the same.

    It gave you all it had, Bri.
    Ranked No. #1 in initial quality

    Idiots, simply by being idiots, seem capable of achieving randomly bad things that are beyond the imaginings of sensible people.

    Had to laugh. My nephew came over today and saw that the car was gone. He asked me why I cut it up? I asked him what I was supposed to do with it and he was like "Fix it up so I can drive it."
