    After getting to a point where the rear end/ boot/fuel tank was done enough to be abe to work out the rear axle position etc the next stage involved a lot of this


    Tubing the front end, negates some of the weight gain of the iron small lblock motor and fibreglass wings are relatively easy to find compared to good condition steel wings




    I maybe jumped the gun a little bit and purchased the interior from Dals business partner. Surprisingly fits well and can make use of the door cards etc to bastardize and better fir the ovlov. More comfortable than the original, doesn't look soo new its massively out of place

    Next up, starting to sort the rear end, volvo turbo rear axle (hopefully its enough for the torque of the lump, seen some swedish 940 turbos run silly power with the standard rear axle set up so i'm mildly hopeful. Te axle had some 4-link brackets welded to it when purchased and i got another 2nd hand 4-link set up from fleabay which seems suitable.







    Airbags mocked up for positioning




    Rear bags/rear axle/bag mounts mocked up

    Just for shits and giggles I stole Pablos wheels







    Loving the look/idea.

    Problem?!


    Solution?!
    Undo everything that has been done at the rear to date, shorten the half shafts and rebuild again. Perfecto Can gain about 4-5 inches on each side which should give enough clearance to run a 10"+ wide rim out back. Think the 18's are a little too big for the car so will likely go 17's.

    Not really sure what is going to happen to it or where I'm going to keep it but first thought is a euro restomod style project

    Inspiration maybe
    That is a beauty.

    I have a Not so old MK1 XR2 in Essex Boy White gathering rust here

    Thinking when funds allow to get them re-trimmed i will try and get them to mimic the standard pattern/style
