    Welcome, good of you to join in. Where else would you look for the help you need? ;)
    We'd like to see your shell on the road. What's it gonna take?

    there is not that much difference between the 280 and the 2.8i special (waiting to be hung for that statement) so you should be able to build most of the car from a 2.8i special
    Any hoooo welcome to the forum and any questions please just
