hmm post was started just over a year ago............No record yet though ;)

Did'nt really start until August.

Not really worth showing pics at the moment unless you want to see messy wiring and phase 1 test cables on the pedal box, fuel lines etc ;)

The doors now have no handles on the outside and the boot is delocked

But i'll put a couple pics up :D

Filler cap (now fitted but not connected to tank yet)

Image

And my seats

Image

Andy might guess where the seats are from ( Shh, dont tell them there in a Dutton ;) )


Oh any one got any ideas where i can get these clevis with grub screws from ?

Got the clutch sort now (i think !!)

Also got a throttle pedal :), its a bit all or nothing at the moment might see how i get on with it (might change the the pivot point on the pedal).

Its now moving under its own power.....just need brake lines sorted now instead of using the handbrake ;)

well been kinda moving a bit backwards for a while now...after losing the screen i lost interest but got a body with a screen from a advert on the DOC site :)
new body with good screen
Image

So decided to use that body as it was in better condition than the one i already got so starting stripping the old girl !
Image

Got some new seats as the westy ones were a bit tight !!
Image

Dont look as nice but i can sit in comfort ;)

and today the old body is off
Image

So can get started cleaning up the chassis and new shocks and bushes alround ordered up :P

If you havn't already got paint for the chassis, I would highly reccomend POR15, I have just finished painting the front suspension with it........ Warning, it does exactly what it says on the tin !! so use gloves :lol: Pics on my thread shortly.

1.3 Twin Cam, I have one of those thats going in my next project, but even if it is all alloy with a six speed box - one of those speeds is a reverse and the engine was designed in the 1950's ;-)

1.3 Turbo would be good - cheap road tax and the power of an 2.0L

That chassis looks in decent condition Jonno - you going with the body mods you did previously or going for standard?

Cheers

Its a jap engine i'm afraid !! all alloy, 100 hp at 6500rpm, very light and can redline to 8000 !! ;)

Not sure on body mods yet..kinda depends on bonnet shut lines again !! ( boot with spoiler on and doors will be used thou ) and the chassis looks pretty good, bit better now with some paint on :)...need to find some cash for poly bushes ( £105 for a set ) and new shocks ( £330 for gaz adjustables ) :(
