Ok so i haven't updated this in a while.
But i have been busy as i said i had to upgrade the power supply to the shed to run the welder properly so i have since done this and also installed new lights to brighten the place up a bit.
So since i have most of the the chassis tacked together i decided to fully weld up as much as i can and my bandsaw had broken so i couldn't cut anymore steel anyway
Im currently about 95%or more welded after about 6 to 7 hours of welding

Ive also got a radiator to make up the rad mounts its from a mk3 golf
So i wasn't really sure about the mounting so there was a nose cone second on eBay
and after a bit of a bidding war it was on its way across the sea i also won a dash blank

So as you can see the rad was touching the nose cone so that needs to be adjusted glad i found out now

Thanks to Vmax for an excellent service and even better packaging

Depending on engine fitted the rad will go in front of it above rack mounts,where the two chassis rails run from front frame.
