    ok bit of a late one not been on here for a while
    need to rejoin the nscc as well please shaun
    latest updates from the cortina build
    after having driven it for a few yards its going to be mint and now it has mot and is taxed
    has been driven around for about 57 miles and cost a bloody fortune but it was worth it
    two quick squirts on the throttle gets me a ton and a lot of sideways action even tho i have 44 inches of rubber in contact with the floor and the turbo sounds amazing all this on 4.4 psi
    wil try to get the video off someone elses phone to post it
    its now completly yellow to date
    got a few updated pics for you to have a look at and about time as well
    more to follow as we are due at the Classic Ford Day at Santa pod this weekend coming and will be there and all being well at York raceway the following weekend

    roll bar padded out now



    trans tunnel modified painted and fitted



    dash in



    lights fitted and testing launch control wastegate works ok



    trail fitting of the wings before painting

    When that thing gets on track I think there'll be plenty of yellow runs, just not in the paint...
