    Special thanks to Aidan (awegazm), Cinda, Chris (ezzupturbo), Chrispy, and a long other list of people that have come down to help out with the zed or that have given me advice over the forums about this project.
    I apologise to all the people who wanted to see this project finished.


    What's the reason for selling?
    I was hoping to keep this project aside til I finished my degree but my family is in a very critical financial situation (even worse than before) and I can't afford to keep a project car in the garage that I can't drive. I also need to move to near campus to finish my thesis next year, so it'll be nice if I had money saved up so I wouldn't have to work as much.

    What's left to do on the conversion?
    The Zed has a running drivetrain and it starts (very healthy, see video in build thread). It needs my exhaust (or any zed exhaust) cut and flanged where it meets the headers. The front mount radiator hoses should be replaced with proper hardpipes. Everything is already in. Last thing it will need is a custom bonnet (there is already a hole cut where it needs to be). Then it's engineering and pits.


    The asking price is $25,000 NEGIOTABLE.

    I'll leave this up for a bit before I will part it out. I will be in f**king tears when I let this baby go, please consider that before you hit the reply button!

    SO close man, SO DAMNED CLOSE to finishing. I feel for you man, if i ever have to let my rolling project go ill be in distress as well. While i may not be buying this, I will recommend it to anyone looking for a short term project. finishing this car will be easy, and cheap. Kev has taken good care of his car too, so no need to worry about poor workmanship :)
