Re: Torker 2 rusty old wreck build thread

I've always had a weak spot for Torkers and this one came out looking great! Nice rescue! You may inspire me to do a project one day like yours.

Re: Torker 2 rusty old wreck build thread

Very nice work! After it's finished you should sell it on eBay as NOS then when you ship it to the buyer throw a few before pics in the box lollol

*I'm just joking. Please don't do that lol.
