Hi quick update see links below
Looks like good news offered up engine and subframe to body (roughly) to see if i had any issues with height (as previously mentioned in this topic) A few people on here including my self weren't sure if it would fit without heavy modifications to bonnet. As you can see from photos HAPPY DAYS !!

done a bit on the suspension refurbing hubs ready for new bearings

Finally for now just purchased 4 to 1 manifold from instant custard (thanks by the way) Cleaned up nicely ready to fit

Slowly but surely bit by bit !

Been a while since I've managed to do any work on the car, just started again here are the latest photo links to work carried out on fuel tank + the last 4 photos on the sub frame show a modification I've had to make more clearance for the driveshafts, it was a little bit too close

Fuel Tank plus Pump and sender unit

I have to thank you for all the photos you have of your subframe, they were most useful when it came to building my frame (that is not totally finished yet I think.). Looking at your latest post and pic's I think I may need to make some mods when it comes to the drive shafts, I was half expecting this anyway. But well done, good work and thanks again!

Will.

Hi Will
Thanks very much for your comments and I am glad that the photos have helped you. When I started my build and was looking at what others had done and i found a lot of photos had been removed on the earlier build diaries I think it was something to do with forum update over the years (sorry if that's incorrect) anyway so I decided to post as many photos as I could as I think pictures can help much better than words can, well my words anyway. Good luck with your build looking good I see you are going great guns at it and will be finished way ahead of me. So I may need to come to you for help when I get to another problem , that's the great thing about the forum theirs always some help somewhere or from someone. Thanks again
