Cheers for the messages guys, been through various states of mind since but feeling positive about it all now.
With the new shell jacked up I set about starting the rebuild, about 100 times more satisfying than stripping. Gear stick / linkages, handbrake, steering column, exhaust, rear beam / brakes, dampers and stub axle all on which means the rear of the car is now done.
Manifold is in a sorry state which means upgrade time, PMS manifold ordered, looks like it’s going to involve cutting and sleaving to fit the Akra but I knew I would regret going for a Togo/gravity.
Subframe built back up with my steering rack and ARB, all of which survived the impact.
£100 on a second hand hub which I have now stripped, cleaned and half way to rebuilding with new bearings. Just waiting on a new EE bracket as it bent on impact and I need to machine down the top to allow the damper to sit lower.
Once the manifold is fitted I can get the engine in which is very exciting although I have already got distracted by purchasing a cheap lightweight flywheel. Once in I am going to have take the intake manifold off as the intake air temperature sensor snapped off causing the plastic to fall in, very likely it has already been eaten by the engine but worth checking.
Noticed this weekend that the seat mounts aren’t up to FIA spec and tbh not sure I would want to race on them anyway so that means potentially a trip to GDF. If I do opt to get them welded I will probably get a few other things done to make the cage safer / stiffer.
For those interested started posted videos of me chatting shit
