It looks brilliant now, the arches look great.
Looking forward to seeing it finished!

CharlieBrown, thanks for the compliments, I have to say that the pictures (although great) dont do it justice, once the car is out in the sunlight with those big ass arches it does look pretty mean.
Going to hit it hard in the next couple of weeks so should have updates fairly soon. Hope to be picking up a few more bits n peices on saturday that may well be worth taking a few snaps of.

I cant agree more in your statement about making these things unique, many hours spent pondering about what colour, what interior and now pondering how the f*ck I am going to do all the wiring, gear cables, cooling hose, brake system....aaargh the list is endless.
But then thats why we bought them because we love a challenge, even though in my case I will openly admit to getting Zcars to have done all the donkey work so far, I just came up with ideas. Wait til you see some ofthe other ideas I am going to put into practice.
Philly C get your camera out and get uploading, there few things I like more than looking through peoples build diaries, they are an inspiration to us all.

Radiator is fitted, tapped out the holes in the radiator to use 6mm bolts. This going to get a shroud to aid cooling.....will be a few weeks for that though.
Here are the Fuel Pump, High Pres Fuel Filter and Fuelcat (inline fuel catalyst, ups the octane of the fuel, **before rushing out and getting one wait til I have this setup to see if it makes much difference**, I am working on a hunch with it but as it wont do any harm it is in the mix for good). They are all getting mounted in the tunnel and the solid pipes for the coolant are going to be lagged to try and help fight against the radiant heat affecting the fuel line and ancillaries. Notice the 'M' shaped mounting brackets, these still allow mounting of the solid coolant pipes in the tunnel. I will have more photos of them mounted shortly.
HIGH PRESSURE FILTER
Gear Lever is in but not connected. Note the original sound proofing decided to snap of while I was drilling holes to mount the fuel line ancillaries....bugger....good job its getting carpet.
More photos as and when.
As for getting it dirty I wont mind too much as it is for driving after all, it will get showed but it is primarily for being driven..........fast.
Lots of work to do on watertighting it sometime in the future, that way I wont mind taking it out in the wet. Could be 'interesting' in the wet though.
