    right bit of of wait for this update lol.








    As soon as we got it back home to the Never Again Racing HQ, the workshop fairys set about getting rid of that awfull rear wing some people like them but not really to ours taste.





    spoiler gone at last you can start to see the real shape of the car








    The chassis was previously tagged to 8.50 but with or engine needs a 7.50 is the only option at the moment.

    Dave and Andy then set about stripping the car down of all wiring pumps ect.
    Then removal of the Body shell.







    after a study of the tech book and some closer inspection the chassis needs more work than originally thought.
    But also a few bits im not keen on... weak motor plate mounts, heavy shell, extreamly heavy old body work, thin upper strut mounts, weakly mounted steering colum, rear coilovers had alot of lean back, also rear section of the chassis is really weak,
    so will be redone with bigger OD tube and some triangulation between upper and lower rails for some strength

    Looks like a good start to a sweet car... and it's in the right place to get the attention it needs.
    Good luck with it and keep us updated on it's progress.
