sorry for the lack off update's and i got some bad news regarding to this build and some good news for the future.

the car was about a day away from running and driving when my health let me down even further (bad case off chronic pain syndrome that went even more balistic on my nerves than it allready did )
so after a few months of mental suffering because i probably could never drive the car for what it was intended for...i let some friends tear out the motor and bring the shell to the junkyard.

regret that decision ever since, but seemed like the best option at the time.
and the fact is i still could not drive the car if i had let it sit around.



now the good news, the idea off the raw power from the v6 and rear wheel drive of the omega kept going to my mind
a frontera is a nice drive and quite comfy but is the most boring car i've ever owned (except from a corsa that i had 2 day before i trashed the engine :P )

so i bought a new one  8)
it is a full option 2.5 manual in black this time.

the plan is to make it a gt / pro-touring build for every day use.
so keep the bare essentials, update the running gear and drop in the prepped 3.0 v6 from the tracktoy, loose as much weight as possible.

so basicly start over and build the tracktoy again  ;) with the exception of doorpanels,working front windows and a bit more ride height and comfort.

will make some pictures tomorrow when i get the car delivered and start a new topic to keep you all informed off the progress.
