Default 2 Months Today.

Well, i got my donor parts delivered 2 months ago, and this is how it stands now...

Got the engine fitted today, the brakes are about finished, just waiting to get a couple of fittings. The seat's bolted in, rear transmision is all finished, suspension is all sorted.

Going to make a start on the dash and wiring next.

Best bit so far: Getting it running
Worst bit so far: Cutting steel for wishbones and engine mounts.
Most annoying bit so far: Generator packing up half way through welding.

Looking spot on there. My build's been going on for approx 13 months now and due to one thing or another i'm nowhere near where you are now

Look forward to seeing further progress reports

Happy building

Russ

Smile Well done David

That is some cracking progress you have made David

Hat's off to you .... Getting all of that done in such a short space of time

Certainly makes my efforts look feeble, to say the least
