    fully carpeted out interior ( i wish) floor taking shape



    1:6 chrome molly roller rockers to run the cam as it has 740 thou of lift at full duration




    more pics and write up to follow shortley

    yes it will be road legal

    updates
    Sat spent most of the day running round getting parts for the tina and on the afternoon / evening got stuck into the wiring harness for the engine.
    got most of it done but not quite finished yet.

    Sun fitting lines to turbo , oil cooler, airfilter, engine fuel lines, modifying radiator and fabricating more parts.

    more updates to follow soon









    after running the engine for the first time (video posted which doesnt do it justification until you are stood beside it) the push to get the car ready begins.



    new addition to the roll cage was added.

    header tank and breather tanks made



    air filter tried for position



    drivers seat checked for fit
