I don't think that this car is in any danger of being junked, even in its present condition its worth over forty thousand dollars...

Just put it back together the way its supposed to go and leave that crap to Gas Monkey Garage.

Congratulations!

As already said before, the best place for you to get info and support on these cars is the M100 website: The International M-100 Group

Good luck!
