As the sites token Australian I believe this to be a cracker of a project.
Looks like a Tercel version of the subaru baja. could it me a 'Taja'? or a 'bajrcel'? a 'Utecel' perhaps? I'll be interested in what you do for the tailgate? I saw one online where they welded the top half of the hatch to behind the seats and the bottom bit to make the tailgate.
