Iím happy Iíve waited mate I just donít want to end up with a duff engine by putting a rod through the block because I havenít forged.

Iíd ideally like a tad over 400. After having the opportunity to drive the JDS Time Attack cAr in 2 rounds at UK time Attack for me itís too powerful and Iíd prefer a better balanced reliable car.

Thanks mate, thatís good info. And really interesting you say it was ďtoo powerfulĒ I guess it goes with want you want out the car and how much you wanna spend.

Yeh agreed a rod through the block isnít ideal !

I felt that it was to powerful for someone of my driving skill ..... which is pretty low hehe.

The JDS car was incredible but I would be happy with 400ish and really learn the car.

Bit of an Update today:

So I managed to drop the fuel tank today which I thought would be a pig, however it was pretty straight forward. Now I can move some other bits out of the way and start the arduous task of getting the rear end back to metal before painting it properly underneath.

Anyway here are some piccies.

Thanks Kris.

Looks like a great base to start with mate. If it makes you feel better the rear is the worst job. Once that’s done it’s all down hill afterwards.

Thatís good to know mate, just unsure if Iím going to modify Fuel system while tank is out at the moment to neaten things up.

Plan is to do the front this time next year.

I did mine in 2/3 sections. I did from the back up to the start of the floor pan , then floor pan and tunnel, and still to do front arches and crossmember.

One thing to remember is the fuel and brake lines run front to back. So if you do it like you’re saying you need to remember you can’t fully remove them . Only way Is to do it in one go. But that’s longer off the road.

Best to get some good quality thinners and clean everywhere underneath BEFORE you start to remove paint and any rust. If you just leap in to it you will force the salt, grease and oil in to the seams

UPDATE:

Iíve just been chipping away really scraping the wire wheeling the rear back to a state that I am happy with.

Some parts have also turned up that I cannot wait to fit.

I wonít bore you too much so Iíll pop pictures up instead.
