For fun!!!! Was wondering where the cockpit had to come too. So I decided to become creative with the wife. Will have to make a bracked which comes on the dash...

It's going good I guess. Still have to repair some of the body work but the list is getting shorter!

I'll be running a B16a1 engine. (6 May I'm going to take a look at an engine....) Bring it to the SVA stock and after that the engine comes out again to be fitted with a supercharger and some other modifications.
Gaining on 250 Bhp.....

Next couple of weeks will be slower. Our backyard is a mess so that will heve to be taken care of and afther that we're going on a holiday for 1,5 weeks.....
Will post some updated pictures before that....

Cheers

Quick update!

I've bought an engine! Bit dirty but that can be arranged ofcourse. Very pleased with it. It's a B16a1 engine. Good for 150 bhp, Vtec and a lot of potential for tuning. It's going in the car as standard, afther the SVA and the RDW here in Holland it's going out and won't be going in before it has 250....... :cry:

Also, I'working on the last seam now. Afther that it's only 3 welding jobs to do!
Send a mail to Z's for a price list. Things will be coming together soon.... >_< :rolleyes: :errr:

Cheers!

Just a thought. How does the engine and gearbox come in/out. From under the car or into the car and out the door?

From under the car...... Put a small lift under the engine, disconect everything and lift the mini over the engine.....

At least, I guess.....

The mini itself.... Loads of work done and finally getting somewhere. The interior is painted so I can finally start building stuff in the mini which is a great feeling!!! Now waiting on the front end so I can get working on the brake, fuel and clutch lines...

Hi all,

been a while that I've posted some updates but been really busy enjoying the twins. They are doing fine. Growing good that's for sure!

OK!

- the front subframe is bolted in place.
- got the hubs done and made holes in one axel for the speedo sensor.
- got my fuel pump and pre filter.
- got my fuel/brake lines. They are copper with PVC.
- also got my fuel sender. Have to change the output range but still, I got my fuel sender.......

Now I have to do the underside of the car so I can put the brackets on for the fuel and brake lines.... Hook everything up and get the back frame!

Cheers!

René
