    Not much progress to report, just more boring bodywork.
    The first pic is of a couple of mods mentioned but not shown, these being the frenched rear lights, fuel filler caps new location, shortened numberplate recess to accomodate an american size plate and exhaust cut outs in the valance.

    The next pic is of the finished bmw 3 series arch on the os, the n/s one has been riveted on for a while, so the pic after that is of the newly tack welded n/s bmw arch.



    These are currently 15'' wheels, im considering 17's on the rear, what do you all reckon to this?

    Fd's normally have 2x built in vents on this scuttle panel so the last mod ive done is to remove and smooth them out.

    Thanks

    Its been a very long time, but i do believe its slowly getting there now here are a few pics of the slow progress, starting with the halfshafts ive had made for the narrowed ventora axle......





    Then theres the modified and painted hb viva front clip just awaiting coilovers



    the new front chassis kick ups...

    .



    And now im doing the very tedious job of stripping out all the underseal from the underside before i blast and prime it.....



    And so thats where i am at the moment,i cant believe ive had this car since late 2003, where do the years go?

    Always liked the FD Victor/Ventora/VX490s and remember your red one well; I saw it race at Blackbushe. The chap won the street racer championship but caused some controversy in the way he did it as far as I can remember.

    Here's my 327 powered Ventora from the 80s

    Lovely fab work, but will the Ventora axle cope with a nitroused SBC?

    Loving this. I remember it when it was white.

    If you can't be an example, be a warning.
