1303RS: '75 1303S street/track project

Since 2007 I've been the lucky owner of a 1975 1303S. Since that same year I've been a member of this site, but so far I haven't made a project thread. Figured now's as good a time as any to do so

This is what the car looked like when I got it:

The plan has always been to turn it into a track focused car that's still driveable on the street. I still want to be able to drive to and from the track in the car itself and be able to drive around town and the highway with it and not get my teeth rattled out

The focus is mainly on keeping the car light, whilst making sure the suspension and brakes are as good as they can be.
Engine wise for now I'm still running the stock 1.6 type 1, but the plan is a simple type 4 build, probably a 2056. Focus on the engine will only happen once it's running/driving again.

It's been a very slow going project ever since I got it, but I was recently informed that I'll have to move out of my current garage within 2 months time, so a lot more progress was made in the last weeks compared to the 10 or so years before that :P

This is what the car looked like for the last 4 years and still pretty much looks like at the moment:
