New member - new project

Hi guys
I been considering buying a SW20 for a bit of tinkering and weekend fun and have been casually browsing various classifieds for a while. I've recently owned an Mx5 which I sold for a more practical car, and have been itching for another toy.
Anyway, I had a look at a car on the weekend on a bit of a whim and ended up making an offer :0
It's a bit rough and has no real history, so it's a bit of a gamble... Time will tell if it was a good decision.
 
I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions once I get started. I'll get a garage thread going to track progress.
 
Exciting stuff

    It's a 1990 GT hardtop 3SGTE.
    I'll need to do quite a bit of maintenance and resto work to get it drive-able, and hit up the wreckers to replace all the missing bits. After that (subject to cost) I'll hopefully do some suspension and power modifications.
