  1. Well done Ned.....+1 for the heathen. What gearbag?
  2. Good summary vosadrian, I think youve got it pretty right! Original restoration vs. tastefull restomod? I can see value in both and it comes down to the market and what the buyer wants. I love the classic modified JDM look and wanted to keep that, so from the outside and even the interior you wouldn't know that my car is so extensively modified until you open the bonnet. I did want to stay with the heritage of a N/A inline six but wanted a more modern and capable feel to the driving experience. I did hedge my bets both ways so everything I've done is bolt in and easily reversible and I've got the original parts, including matching numbers engine and gearbox and everything needed to revet back to standard.....if a buyer wanted to do so. What its worth doesnt really bother me and I wouldnt change a thing if I had my time over again.
