1 thing I would advise is to take the subframe once your finished with it along to where you plan on MOT'ing it and let them have a look over it. That way anything that they aren't happy with is easy to resolve now rather than when you put it in for the MOT

Bit of an update:
No living room is complete without an engine hoist:
I had to take the rear subby off to fit the return fuel line. Got that done now so the fuel tank is all ready to go in. Got the wiring for the pump done too.
Next thing to do is to finish off the front subframe then bolt it in and get the gear linkage sorted out.

Did you buy the hoist?
The engine and subframe are looking great
The missus is away this weekend so I'll be spending 25+ hrs on the car... Hopefully get the cage welded into position this weekend
Have you made anymore progress on the gauges??
Did you get the graduation letter? I ain't going, are you?

Got the subframe offered up to sort out the gear linkage:

I now have 5 selectable gears! Next job is the clutch and brake cylinder i think.

Also got one driveshaft in:
Need to modify the other vaux cv joint for a wheel speed sensor before I can put the other side in. Should receive a nice "Blue Drift Iridium Speedometer" tomorrow.

Trigger wheel pressed on inner CV joint. Steel cylinders pressed into an alumium ring:
Trial fit of the fibreglass front end:
Got the engine running and tried out the gears in the garden.
Front end fitting a bit better:
Alternator mountend. I ended up moving the alternator a bit higher up and closer to the engine so it didn't foul on the front.
Sprayed the front

The First Trial Run!!! All went pretty smoothly, the wheel wern't aligned so it was bit of a handful but a lot of fun! The noise is awesome. Quite difficult not to wheelspin!
New Exhaust in the making:
Coil mounted.... I also mounted air horns, MAF sensor at the same time but don't have any photos yet, will get some soon.
Speedo mounted and tested, pretty cool. I've only made a quick tempory dash at the moment for the MOT, will make a new dashboard before too long.
Passed the MOT first time!!!! Yay! Then about an hour after pssing the MOT i drove it to London and back to chippenham! Bit of a long first run bit it went without too much drama. The bonnet is a bit flexible and bent up at the front a bit and has cracked a bit now. I'm going to have to re-enforce the bonnet with a bit of alumium L section and some fibreglass.
The Power is amazing! So fast, really pleased with the result. Still need to respray the A-panels and scuttle and got a huge list of other jobs to do!
