Love the seat inserts. Motor ain’t what I’d call pretty, but I bet she goes!

Nice looking FB though :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

It’s not too late to swap the plenum cover over to fb. Got a spare one here. Top looking job anyway, but built to show by the look of the smoothed engine bay and boot treatment. Unboosted or hidden remote front circuit only? Column shift and original looking interior is my cup of tea. Is it clear over base makes the paint look so good?

Apology for the hijack Taz.

Yes, that paint is an amazing depth and gloss.

So it is, I was fooled by the bits used to deugly an EK - i.e. FB bits :D :D :D

Pics of Wills car deleted as per request from Will - please guys if you are posting pics of unfinished projects can you make sure the builder is happy for them to be seen in public ? I know there’s only a handful of us still on here but a lot of the higher end builds like to keep their cars under wraps until it is finished and ready to be shown.

Pics I shared. Owner wasn't happy. I should have realised he didn't want to share with us lowlifes. Just pick our brains and try and find cheap parts. Sent him an apology. No reply. Whatever. Nice looking thing. Big deal. Bad clay!

Right, so we are back on task. Been stock pilling parts and saving pennies. Mate is back from Mongolia so wiring, fuel system and brakes are in the hit list. Closely followed will be the engine and gear box.

Plan is to get the car drive able, make sure everything works, engineer to inspect before stripping for body and paint.

Good point but they are far cheaper to install.
