I like your shock towers. Been trying figure out something like that myself. How are they working out?

dunno i;ve not driven it yet lol!!! It's similar to the slamwerks beams (although mine is thicker!) and can't see a reason for it not to work. If i was to change it - i;d make the top mounting point about half an inch towards the rear of the car as the shock isn;t 100% vertical (pretty damn close though)

will ive made a bit more progress on the bug and is ALMOST ready to MOT......but the bug obviously wants to stay off the road a little longer.....

all the oil/fuel and breather lines are done - just need tidying











just need shocks now and engine setting up by RNJ Morotsport.......however the bug spat its dummy out last week

the new hydraulic clutch set up (although is now 4 years old as the project has been going on for so long!) decided to ditch all the the fluid inside the tunnel of the chassis ive flushes the tunnel as best i can and looks to have got away with minimal paint damage. I took the cylinder out (which it turns out i can only JUST manage with the body on!) and is scored.....so have ordered a new updated kit from saco performance.....which will be with me in 2 weeks!

soo now its just clutch and shocks.........





lets hope its ready for spa!!!

Very nicely done! I love the wheels and color combo! An almost perfect clone of the license plates too.

Looks awesome! Question: What axles did you use with the aluminum trailing arms?

Dean, did you just get the MC from Saco or a rebuild kit?

I keep looking at alternatives to the Saco for in the tunnel and they are not too common. BMW 3 series or one from CBSonline are my current choices. And if you don't mind me asking how much was it with post and tax?

Car is looking good fella, you'll be done soon and reaping the rewards of all the hard work
