What are you doing for drainage, for when it eventually gets rained on?
I know unibody convertibles have drain flaps in the rocker panels, and if they clog the cars can hold a surprising amount of water.

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

that stinks man. Thats about the condition my donor was in when i got it. IF belt came off or broke a gear in the wreck then its going to need some valves replaced too.

glad shes ok

Damn. Sorry to hear and I hope the wife truly is OK (no whiplash etc).

Looks like the cockpit handled the crash well despite the mods. No serious movements and it looks like the doors still close(?).

Should you rebuild? Probably not. Even if the car can be put back together it will probably never feel right again. Unless you have serious attachment, best to move to the next project.


Cheers.
