Finally picked up my full fibreglass shell !!!

Trying to upload pictures but having slight difficulty...will post them as soon as i get an extra 10 mins to set up a internet album somewhere.
(says my 56k size pic is over the 10MB size allowed to download)

The rear was cut out by the previous owner for a Z Cars, but assume that they had a change of heart as it was aquired by a friend.

Now, ive been in discussion with Darren @ Promotive in the past, regarding the conversion as well as a nice roll cage set up, possible using the roll cage for the suspension to bolt to, thereby not risking the shell cracking or even worse snapping.

Fingers crossed new parts will be making there way to this car every month, but in this financial climate...nothing is certain!

Currently selling my slightly modified VTS to help get this project on the move (EBAY ITEM 120447237432), so if you no anyone interested please show them.....as the money is certainly going towards a worthy cause lol.

Ive seen projects such as Mk1 Earch Scortcher's outstanding machine.....and see the difficulties with traction low speed, but still would like harder acceleration mid to top end speed, hence the superchager to aid torque.
