Let's see a build thread already. How's the turning radius?

I like that 510. Made for a fun rally/tuner car in the 80s. I still remember the dyno sheet from my buddy's. Just shy of 215hp out of the L16 which was tons of power in that lightweight chassis. He help in tricking out my L24.

Once I get the truck and can take some real pictures I'll post a post-build thread with all the specs and details.

The project has been a challenge. I haven't driven it yet and it's still at SHP for a few more days.

I saw white D90 yesterday morning on 513 in High Bridge NJ with the top down - looked cold. I was in the wife's LR4 and waved. Anyone here?
