Breif update after today. Finnished welding fuel tank up, made a Z-cars style tubular inside bumper thingy :teehee: . Fixed my polo gti radiator to that. stuck(literally) front wing assembly on with Duck tape, put bonnet on. Did a bit more wireing it now turns over but no water in as yet.
Next job to sort is under car plumbing as per Z-cars then hopefully fire it up. :P :P :gimme:


Pictures in next few posts.

Might use clutch bracket to support fuel tank. Not sure yet. Tank won't go back any further anyway.

Want to get it on road asap, but once its up and running it's strip down and into spray booth. :wub:
