Little bit of progress, moved steering rack, new mounts made, some mods made to crossmember for clearance, and welded up the lower splitter mounts.

Ordered some more CDS tube and inserts for upper wishbones, lightened rear brake discs ordered (will need PCD redrilling when they arrive.

Need to wait for new rad to arrive before more real progress can be made

Once the rads in and mounted, the new intercooler can mounted. Need to mount the new brake bias box, and make the opposite side wishbones before looking at rear trailing arms :)

I'm liking that there's another gearbox in bits in the background!

Also the sudden surge of progress is good too. Keep it going...

Is there not a risk of those discs cracking between the holes? Never seen discs with that many holes in before


I break stuff...... :w
