37 coupster Top Doorslammer

Post by doorslammerfan on Wed 01 Feb 2017, 9:24 pm

some of you old timers of the site may remember this, it's sat untouched pretty much all of the last 10 years. Decided a couple weeks back that this year its going to get done. Starting today in fact.



hardest part is going to be fitting a front suspension under there
