Stripped down the road coupe for a re-spray at x-mas, but i got a bit excited and decided to do some body modifications and go all out so i'm still working at it.

I have enough progress now to start a worth while project thread though and hopefully it will all come together in the not too distant future

Will start posting some photos and chat away about what i have been up to

Why does the thread have your user name in the subject line ? It tells us clearly who the thread is by in enough places.

It was at the end of the x-mas holidays that we realised that the first rally for the year was fast approaching. The last event last year the air filters caught fire on the rally car and they changed the rules to allow us to run a14 so I quickly changed over to concentrating on getting a motor rebuilt and fitting it in to the rally car along with all the other bits and pieces that needed doing.
