]after looking at all the fun you guys are having, ive decided to start my build diary, ill try and update as much a possible with pictures. well i started in feb with a 1989 shell, my biggest aim was to make the car look like a mk1 and no extended front ,I was going to use a vauxhall 2.0 red top but bad reviews of the transfer box, I decided to go honda (the power of dreams) i was goin to use a b20 but my uncle had a 2.4 accord ivtec so that was the plan, but first i had lots of rust to contend with. I have put all pics on photobucket for you all to see.

Wow that's shaping up to be a very impressive build, I love your work on the radius arms. What kind of power do those 2.4 lumps kick out?

No, I mean the ones that come out of your hips. Unless I've got the angle wrong isn't this the floor well?

I'm very impressed, I too like the rear suspension work and the effort that's going into it.
Good luck with the build and make sure you see it through

Sorry for the confusion , it will only have two seats so they will be moved backwards, the fuel tank will be on the rear seat, with a cover over it so this will be the storage as the rad will be in the boot, just to make it even more unique

Started to lift engine today , so put the car on the floor to get a better view of what needs to be done it looks very low with 4 inch ground clearance looks good though
