Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

What an epic and inspiring build! Love all you've done with the KA engine to the suspension and now interior updates....really like how you fabricated those ABS door cards from scratch, they look amazing! (....if you ever want to sell those old armrests...let me know... :wink: ) Really enjoying this...
