latest bits have been;

* Change of clutch on driveway - NEVER AGAIN!!!
* Change of coilovers to Meister R from BC racing - much better ride!
* laser cut badge for the front

Did 200mile+ journey in it to brooklands supercar day. Car ran fine, although I lost boost on the way home and found the actuator arm had come off the wastegate so could be a missing retainer clip, all back on now.

Looks like im finally getting there in terms of a reliable normal car - 900 miles now complete.

took less then 5minutes for me.

took off hose attached to boost controller, pumped it with hand pump and stuck it back over the pin and replaced retained clip.

With no firewalls anywhere I could get my hands in from the sides and the rear with no issues.

So I will use this interior over this summer and go from there, I need to decide on where i'm going to have the air vents as well. Once that's done this type of thing needs a professional upholsterer to do the work to look good. I think the material im using is poor, scags so easily and wasnt that cheap. so next winter ill get it done properly when I know im happy with the position of everything. But I feel it's an improvement.

The interior isn't finished yet but some pics, first of all before;

Managed to get back out on the road and everything worked as expected after so much fiddling. The only bit was the exhaust tip wont stay on so ill have to come up with a solution for that.

Missed this post! Basically used the car all Sumemr which is good, covered over 2000 miles so plenty of miles on it.

Ive just pulled all the dashboard out again to add dashboard vents and other bits and pieces to it and then will have it flocked as I think its the best thing to do with this dashboard.

I've also sealed up some small bodywork to chassis holes with silicone just to help keep the noise down a bit more. every little bit helps and all that!

Once Ive finished the dashboard and thats all back in, Im back on to modernising the rear of the car somehow.

I also keep flirting with forged engines but I dont know enough on them to build my own so think id have to buy one thats already been running etc...

It weights just over a ton. But it could easily have a fair amount of weight stripped out of it as I added a lot of sound deadening and creature comforts like a heavy air on unit which I haven't even bother plumbing in [Very Happy]
