    cheers guys,
    i did the chop about 6 years ago and its been sitting since then. normally the roof would be cut into four pieces and moved out to meet the pilliars but i just moved it back to line up with the rear window opening and then pie cut all the pilliars to make them line up if you get what i mean. i might have some pics some where if i can find them i will put them on.the wheels are 22"x10" at the rear and 20"x 9" at the front i have designed the chassis so it will sit as in the pics. as i get more pics on you will see where i am going with it.put some more pics on later.

    The white one with the blown rover with its bum in the air.

    I'm changing the whole thing now. Saab engine, omega box pondering a jag irs (got the irs but need to narrow it)

    Looks like you will be making much faster progress than me, so i will be watching your build closely

    i dont know about fast its going to take a few weeks to get the chassis sorted and then theres still a ton of work to do and like you theres still the rear axle to sort i had thought about building a proper street machine( excuse the pun} like yours but i do like them sitting on the floor.
    heres some pics of the bits i have designed .

    As a serial mk2 man myself i have to say i will be watching this so keep it coming, raking the screen back like that works well & the glass should be flat enough to not "stand up" on the pillers
    will you be running air bags ?

    no air bags , coil overs all round but i have designed the chassis to give 5" of clearance, even the exhaust goes through the frame.
