Ok. Hi all.

Here in this little thread I plan on documenting my little adventure into the world of Pro-Motive!

I have a car that is at the stripped paint stage, just getting blasted and now as you can see below I have the kit and power plant united! I have all new rubbers and bushes in donuts, I also refurb'd all the arms etc... And fitted a new 7.5 ms cooper brake kit installed as a replacement to the drums which used to attempt stopping the old 850!

Rear subframe will just get a refurb, New rear brake backing plates complete with correct wheel cylinders and minifins.

Good luck! I will follow this to see how you get on! I will be starting my build early next year! Where are you based?

Good luck pal, if you use photobucket you'll find it a lot easier to post photos and they size automatically! Even easier wirh an iphone app!

I'll also watch this carefully, never really looked into bike conversions until now and they seem very interesting...

Forgot to mention I have already installed a Barnett clutch conversion spring plate as well as carbon fibre clutch plates!

has anyone done anything different with blanking the hole in the thermostate housing instead if welding it up?

Id make the venting holes in the driver side inner wing before you paint it :thumbsup:
Which holes in the thermostat housing are you anticipating welding up ?
