    I think the west coast is better for buying a foxbody saleen.
    Anything in the NJ NY area is crazy expensive.

    Saleen Coupe

    Glad you saved it.It is my dream car.I have wanted a white with Blue stripe Saleen coupe since 1990.I almost ordered one in 1991 but ended up buying a 92.I did finally get a Saleen coupe in 2001 but it has grey stripes.

    Thats pretty cool, they all are sweet. We got the roof and the rocker panel today at the wrecking yard, and my buddy started to take off the old rocker panel. But he was telling me it may not be done for bellevue so we will have to see. He pretty much only can work on it on the weekends because he works long hours M-F at his work. But I'm hopeing.

    Saleen Coupe

    I am sure you know to save the vin sticker and Saleen sticker on the door.On Four Eyed Pride someone had a post how he duplicated a vin sticker with a compeuter program and it was a very nice job.

    What vin sticker? and the door sticker is gone already the door had been replaced before. Can I still make a new door sticker from my new door and just change the parts that need changed?

    I will have to try that, but It kinda looks hard to do. But I have some time before I will need that sticker anyways.

    Thanks

    Well the old rocker panel is just about off right now, but my friend who is doing it can pretty much only work on it on the weekends, so I would think in a couple of weeks.

    Body work sucks, unless you work at a body shop, you are at their mercy.

    Yea pretty much. But I told him yesterday that people were starting to wonder about progress on the coupe. So maybe he will come over and do some more to it.

    Oh it is still sitting in the garage with half of the rocker panel cut off. My buddy got another project to do that is almost done now ( two tone a 06 GT), and that is getting painted maybe this week then he said he is going to start back on my saleen. But I will for sure post pics when he starts back on it. Im starting to get impatient. :notnice:

    Those pictures hurt my eyes. Sorry to hear that the coupe got hit. Good luck with the repairs and paint work.
