After talking to the guy i got the diff from he is selling me all the stuff i need from 1 car. The only thing i need to do is shorten the drive shafts a little. so from the same car i will have, dif, shafts, hubs,breaks, column, steering wheel, v5, vin plates, number plates, combine that with the "new" chassis its enough to get a age related plate. The other axle on ebay has been relisted, i payed for it to be put back up. So all is good i think

Big update! Im sorry for the 3 posts of pics but can only post 4 at a time! Anyhow what do you guys think?
I am so relived it fits! just..... the starter motor housing is quite close to the upright so might have to cut a bit out and bring it back a little. Its not in the right place yet but allmost. But from what i can see it clears everything so thats great. Sump is a little low so will have to weld on some skid bars just to make sure it does not catch on speed bumps. Anyhow enjoy the pics!

Picked up the rest of the bits that i bought the other week. All the bits were finaly removed wooo happy days. Real happy! Check out the rims... did not want to say much at the time, but got some nice rims wanted to wait till i had them in my hands as allmost too good to be true!
Anyhow now have the J scorp steering column, rear hubs, carriers, diff,calipers, discs ect and other bits. The chap is going to get my some sierra shafts but in the mean time i have some granny shafts that have been cut up so i can just mock stuff up. He is also breaking another scorp that im having the early cossy front calipers and discs as i think im going to need the stopping power. Basicaly bought the car he removed the parts i wanted. He keped the engine and scrapped the rest. Sorted!



Check out the Bling.... Amazing to see the stock granny wheels behind! Edit: Think i might need power steering.....

So! decided to do a bit more on the cnc conversion! Still a long way to go thats for sure.

Right im back! Had a house move so all the gear was stored in the garage. Also found the garage roof had a rather large leak so now thats all sorted i can start to do things again. Happy days! Now live next to people so cant be loud so going to have to rethink things a little. Have started getting the engine to a finished state as its the only thing i can get to at the moment

Have been thinking about the chassis as when i removed the workbench i noticed it had sagged a little in the center so a bit worried my chassis might be a bit screwed up as did not notice it when i was welding. Im very tempted to look for someone to take the chassis too just to check it over and install/weld the suspension brackets. Maby Saturn or someone, im unsure so thought i would ask if any of you guys have done this? Also as its a few inches stretched would like to check if its all ok.

Here are a couple of pics of the engine now i have installed all the correct bits to hold the covers on. Also i found a Oil filter housing that did not have a heat exchanger(Saves a load of space and loads of hoses) so that was imported from japan.
