Default Travoli's B18C Standard Round Nose Conversion

Thought I had enough pictures to start to finally start a thread. This project has been in the works for a long time, and is now finally physically coming together.

The setup:
-MKIV Style Mini
-All custom Honda B18C with S80 LSD (Type R) Transmission
-Allspeed subframe
-Standard length round nose, original steel fenders

-Jack Knight electric power steering column
-RH Gas tank

The most important lessons thus far:
1. It's a lot cheaper and easier to start with a Honda front clip. Motor mounts, half shafts, starters, sensors, wiring harnesses, etc.. start to add costs quick.

2. There is a lot of custom work to be done, and even the best planning will still leave issues to be worked out on a custom setup.

Half Shaft is hitting the rear mount, need to adjust it.

That's where we are. I'll post more soon.[img][/img][img][/img]
