Post Upgrades -Latest
Hi all

So I'm back in the UK now and went to pay my car a visit .
Its running a little behind schedule but looking good so far.

The engine is in and the Toyota Vvti looks like it was made for the engine bay.

Now on to the rear suspension and after a good long discussion the rear suspension will be double wishbone not trailing arm! This is now turning into a big job and I have a lot of faith in my engineer.

This will be interesting to see how it all goes together even if I'm a little bit scared right now.

I will get some picture on here as it goes together I wanted to get to Newark with my car but end of June is the goal to be back on the road

Lee

Ok it's been a slow process

But the engine is in and the new rear double wishbone pushrod suspension is nearly ready for powder coat.

2 weeks away from being on the road fingers crossed!!!!
