You had me worried there Wyllie
I've been out tonight and fitted the front wishbones, upright, and wheel on one side to check!
I think I'm going to be ok - I recon I'd have to lose a good inch off my sump before it becomes a problem!

Well it's been a year and a day since I purchased the bible, so I thought I'd post a progress pic.
I'd planned to have it completed within two years, and I'd like to think I'm still on track for that. I may well be deluding myself that I'm half way there, but you never know!

Haven't done too much over the xmas period, but slowly getting all the ali sheet cut to size whilst I still have the build table.
Hoping to get it rolling within the next couple of months.

Seat back, tunnel top, and side infill bits now cut out
Which just leaves the rear tub in the ali sheeting department. I'll save that until I've finished fitting out the rear end (and feeling a little more brave!)

Thanks guys
It's starting to feel like it's coming together now. With any luck I should have her on her wheels and looking like a car in another week or two. Can't wait

Well, it nearly killed me, but I managed to get the chassis off the build table and onto axle stands this evening
