    Turtle's return following new owner.

    Well guys, I have bought TURTLE and plan on restoring her to her prime and continue showing her. Nothing will be removed just added. Her name will not change, will stay Turtle as promised to Jennifer. She will go by #TURTLE #TPRWRE cause my license plates off Li'L-RED after Li'L-RED being stolen & trashed hard. Side window decals will stay as that's sixthsphere, STC history. So yes no fake louvers lol lol lol
    My plan is to bring that history back and make new history with turtle. Going to do what I can chrome under the hood, fix paint, sunroof with CNC part so never worry about a broken sunroof again. I will be picking her up closer to the end of the month.
    Hood prop was found and include with Turtle.

    R.I.P LI'L-RED TPR-WRE 8 YEARS

    Um. where is that? I see maybe 6 red 3gen SC and a sl.


    Glad to see you are sticking with the expression series. Turtle already looks great can't wait to see what you do with it.

    Sorry to hear about little red though. Time for some anti theft devices in turtle.

    I feared it so much! Only way I could ever think about it, is if was hit in the rear. Save my amr radiator, CF hood and such but nope had to be the front end. Destroying the hood & radiator
    Think I was hurt the worst over the hood

    Also have found a good roof trim to replace old cracked chipped one. Added chrome- sprint brace. Interior is in great shape still and even better after gutting and redoing all the interior "driver's door could use a steaming from dirty hands". Headliner had a few problems from sunroof leak. Recoated the floors, wiring, TV in the dash doesn't work anymore, so at&t tablet is there now.

    Looking at starting a subframe up motor & trans build so when stock motor does go, I'll have a motor & trans ready to handle NOS a little better.

    Next is more work to the engine bay.
    She throws oil out the tail pipe so know nos has taken a little toll on motor.

    I got the rebuilt motor from Li'l-Red with 35k & trans & finzanna LWF build of maybe 4k miles. Most likely will start a motor and trans 3gen/2gen deebs build soon to have one ready.

    Exhaust needs updated, way to loud and ricey, front glass needs resurfaced, bad wiper blade scratches.
