Hi all, I’m new here. For years I’ve been browsing all the threads on here and absolutely love all the work every one does I’m inspired by it. I love xd’s and Have been searching for one for a fair while now.

I picked this one up a few months ago. It doesn’t look like much and is only a factory 6 cylinder car with the v8 fitted. But it doesn’t look to have much rust won’t really know until I get it stripped back I guess. Haven’t had much time to do anything to it yet but have just moved house so I’m hoping to get it in the workshop over the Christmas break and make a start. I’m wanting to have a go at the body work myself I’m pretty mechanicaly experianced but not much in the body work area lol

Anyway here are a couple photos. I did pick up some front fibreglass guards don’t know if they’ll be any good or not tho.

Hi 80XD


With a project like this which wont be completed in weeks, my best tip is to buy or find, lots of containers and zip lock bags, as you strip items write on the bags and a piece of paper what the part is and where its from. Then put the paper in the bag or box and if the writing fades on the front you still have a back up.


Its really hard to do as you want to get stuck in and make progress but when it comes time to put it all back you will love it.


Another tip is take lots of photos before and during and then download them on a old laptop, just for reference when reassembling
