  • NudgerSS 1.6 16v

    OK after lurking around in the background thought I would go public and admit coming over to the dark side.



    Started my build around March time and progressed slowly but steadily since. Don't get a deal of time to spend on the car but I do what I can.



    Unfortunately I lost my early photos due to a knackered hard drive so put these on photobucket for safe keeping.



    Just a few for now to show pretty much where I'm at

      Top work Nudger. I dont see why there aren't more of these conversions out there.
      What induction system are you going to use??

        Cheers Pob. Don't know about top work but doing my best.

        Got a Megasquirt system coming with Jenvey throttle bodies. Not got a clue how it all works yet but I'll give it a whirl.

            Yes George and Bungle didn't fancy going into the cold garage. Think they were playing with their twangers

              After a bit of jiggery pokery I managed to get the manifold to fit but have now come up with the problem of the lambda sensor. If I leave it where it is it will be sticking through the grill.



              Is this the best place for it or can I move it onto the side of the pipe?

                    Its actually stuck its nose out the garage door today. Sadly not under its own steam



                    Had to move it around to get to the back to fit the adjusta-rides. Got drivers side done but those bloody donuts don't half stick to the trumpets



                    Think its sitting well on 10's

                          Thanks for the boost to Club Member

                          That Matt he knows too much!! Yes it is indeed an Allspeed frame. I went the whle hog and bought the other bobs n bits from him too. He seems like a nice bloke but then he was taking a lot of money off me

                          Cheers - John

                            OK for all you photo junkies here are a few more random ones from cutting the front end off. The fibreglass jobbie was on my old Mini25. Its not a very good moulding but will do for now.

                              I actually went about it arse road up as I struggled like mad getting the engine in and then cut the front end off. Muppet!

                              It was originally sitting on these 12" Saxons but as you may have seen I've gone for 10's. Never had a mini on 10's and always liked the look
