It's such a simple addition that really makes them look agressive doesnt it?

Are you retaining the centre latch for the bonnet simon (sorry cant see but assume you are not).

The aerocatches spaced that far apart on an ally bonnet may cause "issues" at speed.

Thanks, pins were on that bonnet when I got it

I was going to originally keep slam panel and oe catch bit was too much messing around just to keep slam panel.

So I will be fitting one of two more areo catches.

Not laughing at you/at all really, wondering where to get a good deal like that following on from JGM's that's cheap lol reply.

Nope, my bad, I missed a 0 from the price ... thought it said 7500!

75000, I know of at least 1 other car that cost that for the engine works.

I would quite happily organise a build of any subaru engine you want to any realistic spec for half that lol

Infact for 75000 I could probably include a car with the engine lol

It was all mocked up on a car in britain and then then all removed and shipped to Serbia where it was built on the actual shell. It was built by RA motorsport developments in Perth by Andy Napier who is ex AWD motrosport. From what I heard from Andy himself the whole build was more like 95k but that was from start to finish.

Back to the point when you going to hurry up and finish this car Simon? You are nearly as slow as me well not realy I have done nothing but buy parts for a year

Steve at SMG is doing the machining and pinning of the block and building the heads and getting the cams made etc.. cams very close to complete, block close to complete..
heads are now ported and need the combustion chambers reworking and then valve seats cut and building up etc.

In the mean time I have been buying bits and pieces.. heated screen, wing mirrors, registration etc
