    This is sort of how the watts linkage will work , it's not all bolted up correctly yet

    When I built a magnum back in 1984 I put a Rover in it same as you cutting the bulkhead out etc I fitted a 100e pedal box assy was made for the job, might be worth you having a look at that as I saw you have a 100e in your garage stock. I put tarmac rally spec suspension on complete with Bilsteins and beefed up rear axle control arms and bushes some Pirelli P7's (hot ticket back in the day) and a set of revolutions on it, Ventora disc's etc I kept the rear anti roll bar and chucked away the front anti roll bar. The handling was fantastic you could flick it fully sideways under full power at over 100mph if you wanted perfectly controlled. When I sold the car the bloke that bought it jacked the back up and put some 10 x 15's on it totally destroyed the best feature of the car. Also when I ran it at Gary's Picnic it ran 14.60 with stock rover engine and 5 speed SD1 box.

    Good luck with the build Firenza's obviously look sweet too.
