Thought it was about time I showed you my (very) long term project.
Here it was when I first got it from my dad, who gave it to me on condition that I didn't cut it up.
So, out came the grinder, out came the floor / bulkhead and in went a pair of Hauser rails, 4 x 2 main rails and a CDS roll cage (thanks to Guy for the bends).
OK, so it wasn't quite that easy, I had to fit new inner & outer sills plus I folded up some U sections to run along the inside of the sills. The floor will end up chanelled by about 2".
Rear end is a Chevy 10 bolt, bought already narrowed - which was nice. Paul G brackets, 4 bar by me.
Front end is Mk2 Escort x-member & rack, adjustable TCAs, Capri struts and off set top mounts. Column is home made from a Capri inner & Corsair outer.
Engine is a mildish 302, rebuilt by me. It's my first engine build so we'll see what happens there. Gearbox is a rebuilt (thanks Paul G) C4 with a shift kit.
Seats are Jaz.
And this is how things are looking round about now.
