HMT's '93 BG - Resurrection

Hi again,

just wanted to show you the story of my winter car.
Bought it by accident in early 2007 - late night fooling around on ebay - for 21 EUR.
As i found out later, it had at least 3 accidents in its life. That's what it looked like:












Did some emergency fixup and drove it home...




Put it into my tiny garage at the time and started collecting parts

Not really, no. Was thinking about swapping the engine but i actually like it as it is now. No need to change anything. All that's left to do is proper maintenance.

Uh, well, most of it happened between April and August 2007 - when learning for graduation, i took half the days off to relax while working o the car
I spent about 1000€ for parts n stuff, so it's really a cheap thrill...
The detail work happened later on...

Cheers The heater control was easy since it's just a EL glow dial placed over the unit.
As for the light intensity, that's only a matter of photography - in real life not distracting at all!
