Looks great - very well done. I have to say that the thought of a 600+ mile round trip to go to a car show is quite a mind boggling thought to someone from the UK :shock:

I stand corrected! Of course, we Scots are made of tough stuff - we have to be to withstand the weather and the midges :lol:

We usually travel hundreds of miles each year to a large annual Mini show.. Mini Meet West.. can be as much as three to five days to get there, it varies year to year as the show moves around to different clubs and city's.. a lot of the fun is in the journey..

A few under-hood and interior shots..

I would say I am pretty much finished, other than replacing the windscreen when that arrives.. and any other little things that pops up.. not sure if we are ever completely done on any project :lol:

Thanks to everyone on the board that helped me out with information, and positive comments to keep me going! :D

Just back from a 3 day 1500km rally in the GTM.... had to drive +200k to get to the start... so 1700+ in three days with tools, luggage for me and the navigator.. the car ran great for the whole time, although I had problem with the exhaust coming loose.. and with water getting into the car in the pouring rain... The car handled excellent on the twisty roads, especially in the tight coastal roads, but I do find I could use a little more power to pull through the corners, mostly when the corner is followed by an up hill section, so will have to think about what to do about that.. Not used to getting passed by the crazy Porche boys!
