Yes, it's another z-cars conversion using a mini minus shell and gsxr1000 engine. Won't go into details as it's been done several times so will just post pics every so often for people to see the progress made so far.

Just so people know this is being built by Pete for a friend of his Andy.

And for clues on colour the pic on the right is probably a bit of a give away!!!!!! :(

As Ade has said, unfortunately this one isn't mine. It is being built for a friend who saw Ade's and just had to have one. The colour is a honda red. The guy that owns it is a paint sprayer and spent all day just polishing the bulkhead :( . Other than the paintwork I will be doing it all myself.
As for the pickup, it sits in the garage collecting dust while undergoing some very major rebuilding. I was never happy with it so decided I will be takeing it apart to do it again. Exact plans are still being sorted(hopefully going fibreglass) but the only definate thing is that it won't be green and purple. Still in one bit at the moment so I can go round the block and just keep reminding myself why I built it ^_^

Going rate for me to build a z-cars mini. NOTHING :thumbsup: . I just like building them and after each one they keep getting better. Shame I did my own first :w00t:

Sorry I was a bit slow Mark. Couldn't work out how to get the pics to a decent size :w00t:

Also have fitted brake and fuel lines ready for when the brakes finally arrive. Front subframe has also been finally bolted to the car.

Small modification to dash to allow roll cage to fit.
