    ill start from where i am at today they is some more pictures in the meet and greet section

    best progress happened today in my eyes looks like I am getting somewhere
    started half 10 this morning engines in I have one issue with the steering rack
    knocking bad i think i have put the wrong bolt in joining the rack to the column
    so I need a bolt if anyone has one
    lost a few bolts here and there i need to replace but the bulk is done
    not sure where to mount the power steering bottle and the header tank
    anyway heres some pictures let me know your views on it














    need to raise the car up slightly rubbing on the rear

    Brilliant work mate, the engine bay looks so hot. Looking forward to seeing this when you've got it finished.

    little update today
    got all the hoses plumbed in throttle body needed re-painting to never got managed to fit that
    few brackets here and there
    rad and fans fitted better
    strut brace bolted on
    lights fitted although the grill wont sit right on one side
    heres one side sat nicely

    heres the other side sticking otu slightly

    also does this look normal or should it be sat back a bit more at the top

    heres the rest of the pics from today enjoy see what you think nearly there now






    turned the brake fluid resovoir around so the strut brace does not get in the way
    and i need to find a way to mount the header tank might make a bracket to fit from the strut brace

    Everything looks great!

    You need to get a new coolant reservoir though... looks horrible and drity!

    Were the front wing 'pattern' or OEM parts...?

    And the grille does sit slightly out at the front, looking from the side. No worries there. Cool

    cheers bud
    yeah i want a new resovoir not picked one up yet keep forgetting to buy one
    the front wings are genuine i believe I have never changed them grill sat perfect before
    I think when i had the bay smoothed everything has pulled in and become tighter the slam panel was a right arse on to fit
    nothing lined up on the drivers side i had to pull on the wing and quickly screw a bolt in

    had a nightmare fitting the doors today pretty difficult to do on your own
    but there on anyway looks more like a car now
    having a hard time getting the door handles to fit properly i bought some porsche door seals
    still to small i think i need to cut part of the door to so they go on flush
    anyway heres a couple of pictures i took wing is not lined up properly need to adjust it when i get a minute
