Thought I would get my build thread going while I wait for the car to turn up.

I bought the car from BHCC and they say the car has been in storage for a long time. I'm planning a full rebuild and RHD conversion, will respray the car the original white colour.

If anyone has seen this car or knows more about it I would love to hear about it.

3643 has landed in Australia just waiting for Customs clearances now.
I just found out the weird front spoiler is a Gran Turismo item. I wondered of its origin, thanks ProvaMo. I plan to remove it though is there anyone interested in it?
Picked up 3643 today......its been on a long journey. Last leg was a 450km tow home.
Now to test a few things then stip down. Hopefully that ZF is ok

Cheers, will post up the whole process. Trying to decide about going back to standard flares or Group 5 Flares? Im liking standard but a lot of the body has been cut away....

Also motor is seized, looks like condensation has got into the engine via the intake. But engine number matches body so happy in that regard.
Was the true condition of the car disclosed to you by BHCC?

Another Pantera owner quite near to me has changed his car from left to right hand drive.

He had the dash made by an EX TVR man from the Blackpool factory and the quality is A1, he does of course have the mould, if you would like contact details let me know.

Original cars are the type I prefer, but its your motor car.
Peter Hi it's Sharkey. Please PM your email address & fee so I can paypal you $ to inspect the GT5-S.

I don't know how to send you a PM. I went to the members section, could not find first or last name.

Started on the flares today as you know the flares on my car never looked right. Today I chipped away the fibreglass and found that a previous Owner has sliced the guards bent them out to make a flare and fibreglassed over them. The fibreglass came off pretty easy. Plenty of metal to mess around with...
