spent a good few hours working on BT's front end today, added some strengthening bars & bolted the bonnet on. Its now too heavy & really struggled to move it, then when i did get it onto BT the rear strengthening bar ripped off the brake reservoir, & the side bars hit the inner wings. So i packed up & hit the beer lol

the new rear top mounts arrived yesterday, & after a trial fit i think i'm going to have some problems. The pics are with no springs, but the car in the air so should be the highest it can go

i'll certainly be interested in buying them off you if the length turns out to be good sir

following on from Rob suggesting a longer shock, i came up with this yesterday which i think should of solved the problem. I had some M10 couplers so tried them on the end of the shock, cut some threaded bar (have ordered some proper M10 studs) to length & its now exactly 2" longer which is want i need Smile

got all the rear suspension on the car, & must say i'm finally happy with it. Think it sits very nice & hopefully it'll be able to get off the drive without ripping too much bodywork off lol

i do apologise for not updating my thread on here very often

another pressie has turned up (yes i know its not going to help get her back on the road lol). Got it straight on the scales & 3.4kg lighter than her current crank (i would like someone to confirm weight of an original crank if anyones got an engine stripped). With the lightweight flywheel & crank pulley it works out to 7.9kg lighter, almost the weight of the original flywheel lol





air intake modified for the bypass valve, just need to get the aluminium flanges welded to the pipes & wire it up







Because so iddiot put a radiator & full pumps in the boot i've got no storage space, so got a double helmet box to put on the back seat. Also bought 2 towing straps, might fit them as door pulls tho lol

helmet box now in & secured


used one of the tow-straps as a door pull, can even reach it while harnessed in which is very handy


also getting an alloy 3" Maf housing made

ordered some 25mm spacers that turned up today, got to grind/fold the wheel arch lip but very happy with them. Also bought some later spec pistons, just need to decide whether to build the engine as a 2.3 or 2.4
