Default Testarossa Rep; Early Christmas present

Found this Testarossa replica in pretty good order. The intention is/was,to store it and not touch it until 2020, as Iím 99 % through completing my other project a Dino 246GT.
Based on the Pontiac Fiero this Testarossa,has been converted to right hand drive and the previous owner had the 2.8 v6 professionaly turbo charged and bored out to 3 ltr. I intend to do lots more cosmetic touches to the car to make it look a lot more authentic. The car itself has been off the rd and garaged for the past 7 years as the previous owner took it off the rd to do some cosmetic work , and respray the whole car. As with things in life this never happened and he decided to sell, and thatís where I am at at present. I donít want to jump from one project to another but inpatients does get the better of me sometimes, and although I have kinda promised not to start any work, Iíve found I have already taken the wing mirrors off in 1 day of ownership,and cut out the slots that are in the original wing mirrors. Just need to fill in and blend in the cut outs....then I must promise myself to stop!!!!.
If anyone else has one of these it would be good to hear about them, and their experiences
