    Fair play mate you've made a HUGE amount of work seem like nothing when you squeeze it down into a few posts . . . still recon yours will be on the road before mine.

    Looks cool, Jezz.

    How many times did you change your mind between blow through and pull through Mafs?

    Alrighty then.

    Car is now mechanically finished and is ready for paint; which should be happening this week/weekend.

    i took a couple of pictures the other day, not very exciting but as it's the first I've taken in months I thought I'd post them up.

    I recognise the reg number stamped into the tailgate glass

    Did it come from Jacko, by any chance?

    Can't wait to see this finished/in the flesh, Jezz. You going to take it along to a Welsh meet soon-ish? Might have to pop over the bridge

    LOL yeah, was Jacko's and it's still rust free, but has been modded for the Kouki wing.

    I will indeed take it to a Welsh meet when it's done yeah, unless it breaks.

    I'd be surprised if there isn't any advantage, but I dont have any annecdotal info regarding the S-chassis to verify it.

    you could probably tell how much less flex there is with the old jack up one corner and open the door trick

    It has a cage in it too so wouldn't really tell you anything; other than it's stiff (or not).

    The car's just been dropped off with Yetiboy for painting.

    Seems strange not having a car on bricks in the garage.

    Was also strainge driving down the M4 with an S13 on the back, covered which can only be described as a parachute travelling along at 50mph.

    I'm glad we stopped to peel it off as at least one of the pigs we past would have pulled us over!! lol.

    Indeed! It was a bit crazy, should have video'd it.

    Anyway, now project Sil80 is finished and out of the way for a while I've moved on to do Project Garage...
