    Vauxhall firenza v8 project

    Though I'd start a quick build thread on the firenza I got

    This is what we started will , a quite solid 72 model viva coupe





    Jeff cutting the fire wall out while I was trying to put the fire out inside the car and take pictures



    Still need to remove more




    Also as we had the plasma out removed a lot of the boot floor



    Made up a rear cross member and prop hoop ready for the larger slot mags and volvo rear we got off of Neil , will be on a 4 bar set up with watts linkage





    Trial fit of the axle and wheels



    Will need arch lip removed and rolled

    A quick peak from the out side as the wheels should sit in the arch



    Very happy with how it's looking at the moment
    Cheers Dazza .

    Those wheels sit in them arches real nice.
    Good to see your project from the beginning, keep at it and keep us posted!
    I may live in East London, I may have a number plate that reads "Chopt", but I do NOT use 6" wheel spacers!

    Love those Viva coupes , What V8 are you putting in ? keep the slots on they look great with that body.

    Back in the day I fancied putting a 3.3 in one of those making a mini Ventora.
