    My god. Great thread!

    There’s been a few quid spent here. Those kevlar seats can’t have been cheap for a kick off.

    Very nice car indeed. Looking forward to watching this continue.

    Ye it’s not been cheap and can’t see that changing until it’s finished lol

    No real updates as it’s still at the body shop. Will be there over the weekend and decide if it needs s full respray or not.

    Massive fan of this build already. Really makes me think I need to get my act together with mine and get a few bits finished off and tidied up.

    Thanks mate seems to be taking forever at the moments so many small jobs left to do and waiting on people and parts is a nightmare.

    Doesn’t help I can’t make my mind up on the engine just yet.

    Cars booked in for Feb to have the new looms made and all the dash and Ecu sorted etc

    Little update pictures don’t do it justice but it’s liquid yellow cage.

    Wasn’t the easiest job to do being welded in but looks perfect.

    Few more bits to fit but getting there slowly

    Not Much of and update really,

    Few parts turning up atm and waiting to see if I can get some bargains at autosport this weekend.

    New moulded Carbon door cards
    330 brake upgrade
    New powerflex bushes all around
    Stud conversion
    New helmet

    Cars currently sat on the ramp with most of the underside off as having all the subframes etc powder coated and new bushes.

    Also started to make some Carbon fibre blanks to cover some holes in the shell.

    Not many pics at the moment but hopefully next week it will all be built back up and ready to go.

    Bits Iv been doing

    Removed all the suspension, subframes etc from the underside and the old brake lines along with the abs.

    Iv powder coated and painted everything.

    Parts replaced

    Full powerflex bushes in black on the rear beam, wishbones and Anti-Roll bar.

    New droplinks, anti rotation links,
    New front hubs new track rod ends.

    Iv replaced most bolts as they were looking worse for wear. I Also took delivery of my ast 5100 coilovers.
