£550 for a brand new R1 engine that's just obscene, WELL DONE THAT MAN.

I was surprised I got it for that, let me tell you - the guy originally wanted more than double that but took away his reserve at the last minute on the auction and I "sniped" the final bid. eBay can be fun sometimes....

A quick update on the R1 project - been collecting some shiny bits (KAD 4 pots and Pipercross airbox from a pal hopefully one of these weekends)

And here's a few shots of the shell being stripped down. This little gem impresses me more and more the farther apart it comes - other than a bit of very minor surface rust and a battery box that will need fettling I don't think one bit of it will need replacing - gotta love the inland New Zealand climate

Lastly, ordered these tonight but with gray inserts vs red - a bit of a change from plans but similar cost in the end, and they'll be sure to fit! Oh, and it solves my personal dilemma of not ever owning an Elise - these are the same ones that came on the Sport 135, Sport 190 and others as passenger seats - difference is my seats will be faster than other Sports 190 seats once the car is done, so that makes me feel better :shifty:

Aric, out of curiosity, how do you ship these items? And with whom?
Getting stuff here in South Africa is a nightmare!

The front suspension goodies and brakes were gotten from here in the US, the seats were purchased direct from hanger111.com

The other stuff I get imprted I have my brother do as he's a customs broker....PM me your e_mail and I'll have him contact you about South Africa as he can look up rules and regs for other countries often.
