Well it's been a wile...... Been busy with just life in general, had a little girl, she's now 3 and really busy with other people's cars. But....

The car has been sold twice and I ended up with it back so made a start again. It's got a cage in it now, full weld in job with triangulation. Fully adjustable read beam. Seat rails welded in and all the sealer and sound deadening removed.

Currently on with doing a new boot floor set up as the compacts are rubbish with the wheel sitting really high. Will try and get some pics up once I get a little further on. Anyone else change the boot floor ?

5kg worth the hassle, mine is in the 1040kg mark without any fiberglass and 4pot engine.

If I had known this floor part weights 5kg...this part wasnt on my car...
