Here is my 1983 Levin (originally Trueno), I have since March 2012.

I won the car like this is a raffle, so it stood me €60 Hurray! The car an great and drove nice. Had a sweet 16V with a Sunline Racing ECU, some suspension bits etc

I decided this car is one to keep after going through so many and regretting selling them, some of my old ones;

So now that I was keeping the car, I wanted to build it to my style. I'm not a huge fan of fibreglass over fenders etc, so the plan was to go back to a steel arch.

These pics were mid 2012, I stripped it and then pushed it outside and built the green drift car above with the intention of keeping this as a standardish road car. Between then and now, I have a beautiful daughter. So having the two cars and a good time now and again went out the window!

So I broke the track car and kept all the bits I liked for this build Dodgy

This was the car after getting custom arches welded in and sorting out the suspension

Car is now stripped and will be getting blasted soon

That's a good price to pay for that Levin Smile. Any more details on the "spit"? Looking for inspiration for next winter.

A few of us made it up in the garage, cost less than €50.

I can measure it up and send you pictures if you like?

Your car cost you less than a single rack conversion bush and shipping from GRP4 to me...
