    So getting it finished last year just didn't happen, but its very close now and should be starting the engine very soon, the engine is built and in the car and its wired up and pretty much done just a few little bits left like the fuel lines and drive shafts and stuff but i am so chuffed with how its come together it looks even better than i could of hoped!! it will defiantly be out this year and very soon if all goes to plan. posting pics up is alot harder now tapatalk and completly died but i will get some up soon.

    and then this is the engine bay being built up ready for the engine, i bought some copper/nickel brake pipe and the tools and made all the brake lines myself, its actually very satisfying. and the re-wrapping all the wiring harness with Tesa loom tape and shortening and lengthening bits to route it where i want it to go. and then i recovered the headlining and sunroof with faux suede so its all black, managed to source a black sunroof controls and Porsche black sunvisor clips but i just painted the sunvisors, then the interior could start to fitted starting with the dash.
