Looks great! Love early Evo’s now too, will be desirable as time goes on.
Look forward to the updates.

Note. Please don’t quote the OP guys, the thread will become huge with all of the images!

Thanks mate with all the work done I don't think I'll be selling it anytime soon

It's only the proper way to approach a rebuild from the ground up

Forgot about this one! Striking contrast with the orange on black - looks good though!

When do you plan to have it done by?
