    It will be at the very least run in, will be for sale but not certain when, starting to owe me a fair bit now after purchasing all the engine parts, plating of loads, powdercoating then new engine/box mounts, new wheel bearings all round, full polybush kit etc etc

    Still have brakes, turbo, and any other bits to buy.

    Wanted to go oem Bush but closest I could find was hardrace but the cost was extortionate for a full set

    Fuel tank was stripped to Bare metal, 2 coats of zinc primer, gravitex'ed the underside and 3 coats of 2k gloss black.

    Subframe and rear hub assemblies built up with new bearings, plated hardware etc.

    Had some stainless tank straps made.

    And all fitted up!


    Next is brakes, diff, shafts and prop.

    May try get it done for iow Takeover but probably being optimistic lug:

    Had a quick alignment, need to refresh the driveshafts.
    But for now, trying to get the bodywork to a half decent standard.

    Any tips on removing bird s**t etching?

    Have tried a compound (farecla g360) and hairdryer trick but can't seem to completely shift them!

    This is looking amazing. It's like a petrol thread. Great work
