Looking great in there man. I never would have guessed the Nissan subframe would go with relative ease. You've deffinately got me thinking but I'm not as silly as you so I probably won't do that stuff just yet :)

p.s. 'twas me you were talking to about it. I remember and you don't, which is saying something. All that fatty food must be messing with your short term memory :D:P

Rofls, yeah but he's only uprating it because the standard toyota diff can't handle the weight of his diff. Its not for any handling advantage.

Nice work man, sweet paint job. I've go an old street machine somewhere with a similarly painted rover v8 powered RA28 somewhere, neat looking car for sure.

i didnt do the pannel work, it was done by a friend of mine who is a pannel beater. he owned the car before me. it sat in his shed for 13 years before i convinced him to sell it to me.

As usual. Your quality of build is astonishing. The job you do is just so awesome. Inspirational etc. Should really get stuck into my stuff.

Can't wait to see/hear this steed at next trackday. Are you building the extractors yourself? Equal length or whatnot? I have always liked the idea of building my own extractors. But have absolutely no idea of the physics involved...

I can imagine that when this car is completed it will be quite alot of fun.

Did you consider putting a free fifty in there instead of the UZ?
