    Who else can't be trusted

    So I was left alone and got bored, when I'm bored I usually go look to the track car to tinker. Well when I'm bored and go tinker and find the angle grinder, drastic things happen
    Yes I cut the front of my car off. Seemed a good idea to tube the front end

    Does anybody else do drastic things when there bored?

    Not quite that drastic no.

    Did you remember to measure twice before cutting ??

    looks perfectly ok to me ,and same I ponder something for ages then one day just dive in and see what happens on many jobs
    been thinking of doing the same for more strength/chassis stiffness and maybe a small weight save,
    seen them done in various ways and not sure what I like best,I think the MCA Hammerhead 13 (and other time attack cars)
    is a good source for ideas, http://www.worldtimeattack.com/index...ca-s13-silvia/
    I can't decide what way to go so to see another would help, some look like no real strength is added,just twiggy tubes and no panel work

    I once went out to clean my 13, decided to take off a couple of bits for access and ended up spending 18 months going through it to derust and repaint every bracket etc. Does that count ?

    I did a manual gearbox conversion that has been runnning for 14 months now.

    It somehow became an rb swap which continued to get out of hand.

    Also has no signs of stopping antime soon.

    Engine rebuild is next on my list. The build was always to work around handling and stopping before power. It handles and stops ridiculous now so I can look at engine now.

    It's an awful affliction. I took a 1UZ out of an LS400 to drop straight into my 180, a long while later it's nowhere near the car with forged everything, high compression, lairy ass cams etc.

    My other half has requested I don't tell her what I'm up to anymore
