    Hello Guys,
    Since I'm around the forums again I thought I would catch everyone up on my project since I haven't touched it since 2006. Times were hard for me since then but I never got rid of the Fuego. I started again on this project last year in October when I purchased a better body for my project. As most of you know all i need left is the front bumper.

    Here are pictures of the engine build and the old body.

    Excellent stuff, what made you go for a new shell though?

    2 Reasons.

    1) Sunroof on this frame.
    2) Way less rust to fix and way less KM's on the chassis

    Its a stunner !

    Any particular reason you decided to save a Fuego ?

    The Fuego was my first car in 1997. Renault hasn't sold any cars in North America since 1987. Most people still don't know what this is or who even Renault is. Most still ask who makes Renault. To me it represents my "teen" years and the fact that's it's just so much more unique than most restorations around here. It hasn't been cheap though and this has been a project for the better part of 15 years for me. One day I'll finish it.
