It's getting done as we speak. Once the body it is done it will be coming off road till I have investigated and probably re-built the engine.

It's got an aluminium rear beam to go on and a stainless 1 3/4 inch rc40 and straight through link to go on too!

Here is a tantalising picture of the completely finished bodywork. I will rake some more when the snow is gone.

There wasn't any structural damage in the shell, just the minor tears on front valance. The horrible section over the arch was just where the filler had cracked.

She looks good as new again and I am very happy.

It's actually been done a month but I have been outside sleeping in it and hugging it since then. So i never got round to taking any pics.

Just needs new headlight and grill. Gonna make an ally grill I think.

Also rc40 is on and is brilliant! Highly recommended as it idles much nicer and throttle response feels like its making an extra 10bhp!
Honestly its' that good, I reckon engine will be easily over the 100bhp mark now. Shame I've got to whip it out to investigate my oil pressure knightmare.
