well after a massive meltdown last saturday trying to sort the final bits of wiring , raging toothache didnt help either , i was ready to put a lump hammer through the car so decided an early finish was best . Sunday with a clear head saw it all finished than goodness . only an engine loom to do now but ill wait till i get the dta , reasonably simple from a diagram anyway , brake brackets all back from the machine shop and bottom end back from the engine shop , so plenty to do now ..

good weekend brakes all on , all aeroquip for the brakes done , just need feed from pots to reservoirs to complete , also a fresh coat of red under the arches to cover any overspray and freshen it up

Image

well pleased with the brackets from the machine shop considering all they had was my wooden protos and a rough drawing , spot on fair play .

was nice to deal with a company that dont suck wind through their teeth when you show them what you want done and actually do what you ask ..

Are you planning to use this as a show car?
I think if that was mine and I took it on a rally I would cry after it got the first scratch.
Very nice work.
