  1. Stop painting and keep building man!
  2. Does that bring the steer wheel closer to the driver?
  3. Speechless. Simply stunning.
  4. And we are off!! Nice one Leigh. Yup, photos, photos, photos (it's a man thing) This should be another epic build blog.
  5. No idea, but looks good.
  6. Some inspiration for you...
  7. Seen the engine. It a hefty ol' lump. I agree with Gav, majority of the bits that you seem to want to retain, you are not going to retain - i.e. you are going to replace with new

  10. Chatsworth 2017 you mean Amazing work and engineering.
  11. Now available on www.111racing.co.uk
  12. Great. Thank you for the confirmation.
  13. This is going to be a classic thread! Good luck Leigh.
  14. One of the more popular mods over the years has been replacing the original door pins with the slightly thicker pins from either Eliseshop or Eliseparts. Now, before I replaced mine, I didn't quite realise just how much my doors rattled during normal driving or even worse, when you hit a pothole or something. This mod is straight forward and took me about 10mins to complete, however I have read elsewhere with some folks taking them as long as an hour to line up the doors. Note: One thing that I did is ensure that I took note of the tidemarks around the existing door pins, with a view to use these to align the new ones. This worked like a charm. Apart from some really minor adjustments, the door worked pretty much straight away. Results: The transformation is amazing. My car is generally rattle free, but by just adding this simple mod, all the sudden it has transformed it into a large german saloon I am very pleased.
  15. For some time now, I have been keen to do two things. Firstly, add a bit of symmetry by adding another revers light, and secondly move the fog light to the where the original reflector light is. What held up things was the fact that I needed a round LED light that would fit the original reflector recess. Anyway, they finally did it. Credits: Thanks to Matt C for finally finding the right type of LED required for this application. One of the brighter minds What you need: 1. Drill 2. Wiring loom - red and black 3. Screwdriver 4. Tape, connectors, soldering iron 5. Wiring heat shielding tape or tube 6. Additional reverse light unit (one) 7. LED round fog lights (two) - some now could be found on fleabay, but not sure whether quality ranges depending on the supplier. Approach. The fitting is pretty simple and if you have some very basic electrical understanding and can handle a drill, you would be able to get this done pretty simply. 1. Remove the original fog light and make a wiring loom to extend the reverse light to the foglight location. 2. Install the new reverse light, giving you two reverse lights 3. Make a new wiring loom to extending the fog light feed to the new location, by the two round reflector lights. Job done. It took about two hours end to end with some breaks and taking time getting it all done. I think that the final finish is very good so lets see how long it will last. Some LED units are poorly made and they start dropping out after a while, but we shall see. As for now, I am pretty pleased.
