Nice pick up! Welcome to the forum! There will be a lot of people keen to see where this car is at and what you have planned for it! I know I am keen!
Back in the game! Now building something mental... Will I ever finish? I hope so! When? No idea.

Took along time to get Andy to let me buy it!! lol

I'm planning on sorting out the interior to start off with, fully welded in cage, seem welded and dash flocked ..

I've got new Carbon fibre bucket seats and harnesses, Boot floor will be cut out and fuel Cell fitted with one single 044 instead off having 3

Willwood caliper conversion next, maybe next year new engine with VF22 to help get 300bhp without the use of gas

Andy already has most of the bits to do it, we are good mates and he helps me out with the car and is still a big part of it

You'd think that. Mine didn't. The only feedback I got was "how the hell am I supposed to climb out of this stupid thing wearing heels?" No mention of the rarity or performance...

Bless the fairer sex. :roll:

I don't have a wife so heels aren't an issue :lol: .
Rob's pretty tall though so his concern is that I don't lower it too much, and that it doesn't have A/C in summer;
But since he's a guy he does get the whole car thing and enjoys it almost as much as I do. ( He helped me put it back together just in time for rego.)

All that being irrelevant,
Welcome to the site, Your car looks great. (I'm vaguely jealous.) :wink:
Let your freak flag fly.
