Project Make Spyder Crawl Again | Introduction

Well, we wrapped up the project Make Spyder Great Again, and now we’re starting off project Make Spyder Crawl Again. We’re bringing back Mitsubishi 3000GT Spyders from the grave here! This one had both feet in and was already buried up to its waist. But, this 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT Spyder VR4 caught the eye of one of our customers and he had the great heart to try to save it. And we’re going to get it looking beautiful again! This particular example was pulled from an insurance salvage auction in Arizona. 99% of the Spyder specific roof components were there, and it only had one leaking hydraulic line for the trunk (tonneau) which probably saved the roof components from being pillaged. If you don’t know how to get into the trunk, they are almost impossible to open without the top system functioning. The emergency release is almost always broken (this one was). But, luckily for us…. we’ve been around a few spyders before and it wasn’t a big deal. The stench of mouse poop and pee was the hardest part to overcome! After opening the roof and clearing out the inside, I think we have ourselves a pretty good specimen for modification. Once we start receiving some more parts, we’ll go over what the future holds for this rare bird. And then take you through the process of getting it completed!
