Ahh right, what engine is in it? Or is it just the original engine with extra parts? Looks good anyway! Good look with the build anyway ;)

Made some more progress this week-

Switch panel for starter button, power, ignition and fuel pump switches-

and infront of the gearstick where it will live-

wiring it will be fun!

and got my rear calipers and carriers painted up ready for fitting!


more to come soon!  :P

Oooh, I love the idea of those switches, anymore info on how your wiring them and are you going to use the original key barrel to that? Looking really good though :)

Great stuff stu :D quick question on the rear calipers. I'm gonna be fitting some on mine soon but I'm stumped on how the handbrake cable is going to fit. How are you doing yours?

The calipers I'm using are x19 rear calipers and have a hand brake mechanism- so it should be just matter of fudging the 126 cable to the calipers but to be honest I'll keep you posted!

More work today- I'm removing all of the suspension to go off to be powder coated got the rear off today I'll hopefully do the front stuff at the weekend-



I thought I'd test fit the x19 disc conversion whilst I had the rear arms on the bench- looking good!




Next I'll be getting the engine and box out and getting the car turned on its side so I can clean and paint the under side ready for all of the underpinnings and engine back in then it's going off to the spray shop for some love and paint- getting close now!

Stuey
If you are going to turn your car on it's side to get at the underneath, I have a home made frame for turning cars up side down, like a spit on a BBQ. I am 30 miles away on the edge of Thetford if you have access to a small van or trailer you are welcome to borrow it.

No guarantees, but it should?
