 More rot, damage found this week, front chassis rails seemed ok,  but closer inspection revealed issues. A couple of calls later a new left front rail is on its way from Palmside. Which means the body guys can keep going on the front while we wait for a new rear quarter to arrive from the UK.


Ive decided to go for white, with black accents and hopefully a carbon fibre rear spoiler.

Got an engine builder lined up to give mine a look over, hopefully  it can be rescued.

I’m trying to find some genuine seats as the original ones have had the adjusters welded up solid.

The plan is to have the car running a road legal by the end of the year.

i seem to be saying “ hopefully “ a bit just lately .....
