Here is where I am at now 4/20/14
I posted this over on Stanceworks, but figured I might as well get it over here so you guys can see what I am doing across the pond. Well, this one will be a slow build as it is the toy car, and on the back burner really till spring. But I wanted to start up a build thread to show some ideas, and where it is heading. Years ago I built another Estate and sold it to my buddy, and thus regretted it. So I sold my Mini Saloon to a customer which I will be starting his build in March, and bought this 76 Estate over in UK and shipped her over. Currently it's got a 1098cc 4 cylinder engine, 4 speed, Right hand drive. Since I have built so many different conversions over the year, suzuki powered, integra Gsr powered, I want to do something special with this one. Right now I am leaning towards a s2000 front mount, rear wheel drive so I can still keep the space inside.
As far as suspension is concerned, I will be building a one off air ride kit. Going to use hopefully the ride tech 7000 series bag/shock setup. I will tub the rear, just finished painting some aero race wheels for it, have yet to get the tires mounted up. Fender flares I made. If you guys haven't figured out I have a hard on for wagons. Anyway, on to the pictures.
Here is how it arrived from UK at Baltimore Port.
Hour later got the 13x7 deep dish steelies I made from a 60's MGB rehooped.
I polished the grill, iridium coated headlights
The Interior I pulled out of my Saloon before I sold it, I re-used the rear upholstery and added a little bit to it to make it work in the Estate.
