    Wow, I bet the LM1 cost a pretty penny. Out of interest, Was there any reason why you chose the LM1 over the VEMS?

    panels temporary fitted [read just wedged in ] as the interior is grey and the seats grey black its good how the black velvet changes to grey as you move your view point

    also to answer the question above, the 2 pumps with a digital controller cost 300 but as im investing mucho dosho in the engine it gives me piece of mind same as the accusump

    i found the sx floor pan lends its self to it, i have the car on stands at the back to see the suspension drop and i can box up really close to the wheels all around, over the diff and gearbox, looking at ducting some air between the floor and the under-tray to cool the gearbox and diff and as i have no fuel tank now i could duct the air out through the boot and keep the airflow clean under the car

    i just need to know any implications regarding mot time and me covering the floor up

    That's really nice.

    Having seen that, I think I might rip mine out and do it again after all. I'm not that happy with how its ended up.

    Your whole project is looking good.
