    Looks like a good little project. Wheels will look ace when it's on its arse!

    I bet the bottoms of the front & rear arches aren't as good as first thought... pictures do tend to hide stuff like that.

    Some elbow grease and a few choice mods and you'll be on to a winner!

    Making great progress and I'm loving the colour. Looking forward to seeing it with the wheels sorted and sat on the coilovers.

    You don't mess about mate, this is the fastest build thread on a new car I think I've ever seen. Great work.
