Hi Alex,
Bloody hell you on a mission or what.....Don't you sleep
When do you plan to fire it up? Hope you got a big fuel tank for that engine....LOL
What body kit route are you going to take with the rest of the car as you gonna need it soon.

Bye for now Johno

Well rear tub will be a Saturn one. Wings will all be Luego Viento as they have a nice shape to them and able to fit my big rims (rears will eventually be changed to take 325mm rubber)

Personally I favour the straps and sit the tank on some decent rubber strips. downside is they do need to be nipped up once all has settled but they are more forgiving with chassis flex. Builds looking good.

Looks very nice indeed

The tank looks great, what capacity is it ?

I,ve noticed that you intend to fit a GRP rear tub ( GRP chassis rails fitted)....the GRP rear tub won,t fit with the SS1 parts fitted ( the curved bits just behind driver & passenger outside elbows ).

cheers

Not sure on the size yet but looking forward to finding out! Might have to start a competition with a free mini keg of beer for the winner!

Ohhh really so there is nothing there at all with the GRP? in that case i will bash it off tomorrow!

No, theres nothing there, that area of the GRP is "sort of" self supporting, its held to the chassis in that area with rivets/rivnuts ( your choice ) down the side of D9 & D10, if you think ahead you can get the fixing points under the rear wheel arch so you don,t see the fixing point

That last photo looks fantastic

cheers

car is looking smart. will have to have a turbo drag out when yours is finished :-) one tip as soon as its on the road buy some r888's or r1r's as they will be the only things that will keep you on the road have always loved those BK wheels ever since they come out.
