    Had a couple of patches but sound enough, we have a rotating spit now so that will help with welding and painting

    All three of us on the car got plenty done even with me dropping the engine on kevs finger while he was locating mounts
    Mounts fitted

    Engine on mounts


    And all out again

    We have to trim the lip on the bulkhead to get the engine back as far as we could and weld up

    Took more of the front away



    Just need to make some brackets for the new intercooler


    Anyway many thanks to Kev and Kieran as always

    Amazing work you've done on this lads! Think it'll be done for the Weekender so??

    On a side note, looking at the pics where you're carving out parts of that minty-mint shell makes me wince... but I know it's for the greater good.

    Cheers JP don't think it'll make it to the weekender better to do it right rather than quick, got all the welding with the linked rear and coilovers to do before paint inside and out then wiring and build up

    Spent a day building up a spit to rotate car it was a good kit but needed a fair bit of welding a day well spent by Kev

    This will make the cutting and welding or the rear link kit easier

    This weekend was much more successful

    Checked new 2.4 rack


    Cut arches to fit rear turrets



    Not welded in yet
    Also we bolted front on to spit

    So it's coming along as always couldn't be done without help from Kev and Kieran

    Ace work! You got lucky that the angle grinder didn't do any proper damage, could have been really ugly! Nice job on the spit too, where did you get the kit from? Cheers

    The comments are encouraging at this stage I sometimes wonder why I didn't buy a quick car just to jump in and go

    The level of commitment is greatly appreciated not many would put this effort into someone else's car

    Some pictures of the not so minty mint shell




    How much filler!!!!
    So don't feel as bad cutting this up for the conversion at least when it rolls out it will be mint plus Kev wants to stitch weld engine bay and along chassis rails
    Getting there but slow progress
