New forum, new build thread! Thought it made sense to keep one thread going as I seem to go through quite a few cars ... I'll try to do a mini history at some point but I'll start with a summary of where I'm up to at the moment.
Car 1 - 1991 BRG
Got this one in about 2008, and it's gradually been developed more and more into a track car. Currently having a Nickson cage put in, fingers crossed I'll get it back in about a week. I've sold a lot of the Gucci parts, but a summary is something like ...
1991 BRG shell with dropped floors and a welded in Nickson cage
Heated front windscreen
2003 1.8 block, 1999 head
Currently on standard induction ...
Ohlins / Performance 5 suspension
949 Racing 6UL wheels
RX7 plated diff
There's a lot of parts missing at the moment ... fingers crossed they will reappear but I'm not that hopeful ... bit annoying to have to buy parts that I already technically own, but life's not all good sometimes!
Car 2 - 1991 Silver
Bought this on valentines day, it's a really solid shell but has a Zetec conversion in place. The car was running, but blew the head so it needs an engine ... the rest is there though, Ford wiring and ECU and an MT75 gearbox with custom prop. The rest is basic 1.6 stuff, and the interior is totally stripped so it needs some work ... the jury is still out on whether I can be bothered to spend the time so it may well appear in the Classifieds section!
Car 3 - 1999 Bronze
Got this hoping to fix it up, but the engine was completely toasted so it's being broken ... unlikely it'll make it back onto the road although I've got an Audi 4.2 V8 I'm not using at the moment ...
