Well made a bit of progress over the last week managed to finish painting the chassis so the build can really start. Iv ordered all the aluminium and toll delivery and iv made and fitted the floor today so a shed load of drilling holes later and a shed load of pop riveting my hands are a bit worse for wairs but it's all worth it

well its been a while since iv had time to work on my car 6weeks as I'm working night shift at work on a shut down any way the plus side is iv been able to spend a bit and buy some bits for my car and I managed to spend some time on it today as I had the night of last night but back in tonight. So iv fitted and mounted the rad but together my nice new peddle box from OBP and done some panel work around the tunnel. Iv got a couple more weeks to go on night before back to normal but by the end I will be buying the body work but the wife doesn't know that yet

Well Iv finished my night shift work on Friday morning thats the shutdown over with at last. Anyway I had a nice family day on Saturday and the wife was kind enough to let me go out and play in the garage today so my build is back on and I should start making some good progress. Anyway I'v cut all my alloy sheeting for my fuel tank today now I just need to arrange for a mate of mine to come over and weld it up for me with a few bears of corse and I had a little bit more time on my hands so iv started to run the rear brake lines. Fidley work but it will keep me buzy from this week
