Hey, its just bolted to the sub frame and the front valance but its took a few hard knocks and seems to have held well. I'm waiting for it to pull my valance off some day haha

3 engines. My f7r, a donor 1.7 i stole parts off (Alt, sump, bell housing etc) and my good 1.7 i took out. Keeping it complete just in case lol.

Just got the engine on the mounts tonight as it was getting dark. I'm off uni for Christmas so its a good distraction from exam revision. Biggest things on my list are exhaust and manifold flip.

The engines in and all the mechanical work done. Ive my loom sent away to be altered so thats all im waiting on.

Got my manifold flipped and an exhaust made up. Engines all plumbed in and a throttle cable bodged together and a fuel pump wired up. Should be ready to go when my loom gets back, no rush as ive exams over the next 2 weeks.

I picked up a set of revos cheap but they look like a bollocks to fit (sleeved nuts needed and probably extended studs)

Great work, the wheels are pretty decent but personally the colour would be better a dark orange :) otherwise way to much monotone colour going on.

Thanks everyone.

Yes once im mechanically happy with the car, ill give it a quick spray. White probably. The wheels were blasted a long time ago and put into storage. They will need rubbed down and painted/ polished lips.
