Nor me!

Then to start cutting the arches out to suit!

Have to say the service from TarmacSportz in supplying the wheels, and Hatton Energy Motorsport in doing the tyres etc has been top notch. Nice to see some good companies that are as passionate about the parts as we are, not just in it to make money, but because they love it as much as we do!

Lets hope so! Still waiting on my turbo, so at least I will have time to get the arches done!

Adapters are on the way for the wheels.

Chris at CDF got back to me very quickly and I do apologise for hassling him!

So they should be here by the end of play next week, turbo will be here monday, and then we have our work cut out getting the rest of the car in shape for the drag event on the 11th!

Phonecalls to engine tuner and lots of favours been called in are imminent!

New clutch is in, gearbox is fitted complete and everything apart from the h brace is all bolted in place.

It seems I have lost the nut from the chassis to the lower arm on one side so I need to get a new one.

Anyone got one going spare?

To do is an oil change, fit the turbo and exhaust...

Wheels are back with me and the spacers should be here tomorrow from CDF!

Its getting there!
Had a couple of issues last night the slave cylinder has shat its self so that now needs replacing and obviously loosing the nut off the lower arm is a ballache.

Tonight/tomorrow morning I am going to look at getting the turbo built up andd fitted, hopefully I can get a slave cylinder today too and get that swapped over tomorrow and the box filled with oil!
