    I have been asked to finish this thread off with a summary of what it is like to live with.

    It has been on the road for 18 months and I have done 10,000 trouble free miles, it is the cheapest car to run I have ever owned at 44 plus MPG. It is also comfortable and will cruise at 85mph all day on a private test track, there is no bump steer and has a good turning circle.

    It lives outside and is used all year, there a a few small areas of bodywork to touch up but the bodywork is standing up well.

    The axle ratio is too low at 3.5 so I bought a Crown Victoria axle with 2.9 but have been reluctant to take it off the road up to now.

    When I redo the bodywork in the future I will cut the front arches and raise them a couple of inches, I like the way it sits but the front wheels are too covered.

    I love this. Great work.

    I have a 47 Aerosedan on it's way. Will start by getting it on the road with original mechanics, but seriously thinking that for a truly usable vehicle modern(ish) mechanicals from a "single" donor are the way to go.

    Love this BMW power.

    Thanks for the positive comments, this has been a long time finishing. I was not sure if the colour was right but with the chrome on it looks great.

    Thanks SYD

    I had some problems with the paperwork and I could not get it to run, both issues have recently been resolved so I have had it sprayed by Popmad and the chrome redone. It is now going back together and will be on the road soon.
