    Hello Dean,
    Thanks for that :-)
    Yes - the car will be road legal and hopefully driven to and from events at least in the short term. I really need to get myself a trailer and a tow vehicle again for stuff like this... Well, that or my next project on the cards after the Supra. Mathew the workshop monkey think's i might be over reaching slightly.

    I've been lucky enough to meet Steve a couple of times when he was mapping my mates s14a. And like you said Mr Bizzle he is a top bloke and knows his stuff. I'm hoping he can map my car soon.

    I'm going BMW ZF 5 speed for the transmission with a custom flywheel and Tilton 7.25" clutch.
    Thanks for the support folks.

    Honestly, i can't wait to show you what Mathew the workshop monkey is up to (as we speak...)

    Not so much more to do fella, well done! Paint prep is my least favourite thing on a car. Closely followed by welding under a car.

    The inside of the arch has a metal lip that will stop any bits of the tire causing significant damage to the arch.

    Just caught up from Part 9 whilst in work.

    Loving the updates.

    What kind of direction are you going in regards to aero?

    It's still a bit of a debate,
    I'm really not a fan of the Ridox front bumper. So that ultimately needs to get shot at some point. No idea what i'm going to replace it with though that doesn't look like a 90's veilside imitation.

    Bomex bigmouth maybe?

    Anybody else got any ideas?
