Will be doing similar build (re-shell) next summer so following with interest. Did your rear subframe fit to the shell ok? My old one is a hydro one that has been converted to dry and I suspect will be too rusty to save. Heard horror stories about replacement subframes not fitting well to the BMH mk1 shell and hoping to avoid fettling after painting.

s3swiss, rear subframe fit great, although i used a genuine subframe for mockup all the way through the build to keep checking it.

 

The car seems to have an equal amount of toe in at the rear which may need a spacer on each from minispares. Which i heard is very common on the repro frames.

Little update, Cobra seats arrived after 12 weeks lead time:

Order arrived from minispares which allowed me to put my polycarb sliding windows in and all the fittings:

Maniflow exhaust and silencer was mocked up under the car to check clearance for the rod change adaptor, i ended up ordering some different m8 rubber bobbins as the ones in the fitting kit were to small (or i had done something wrong)

Put some black grip tape on the floor panels to protect paint from wear:

Looking pretty nice now, still concidering getting the quarter lights chromed as its letting the car down so if anyone has any recomendations who will do just a pair of frames without the hinge section let me know.
