the engine mounts are off a land rover 90, the arms that go from the axle to the body, these are axle ends, there are four.

Ah i had already tried the panard rod from a disco, but they were not beefy enough, and after seeing yours they looked perfic. Cheers :proud:
your frame looks very tidy

Love it.

Whats your thinking on the air flow side of things for the rad?

Would you be best leaving the floor open and pushing air via the fans then ducting all the hot air out under the valance, that way you could keep the rear window as per the original (I am guessing looking at the templates that the rear window might get interfered with??)?

Are you thinking of a cold air feed from somewhere - maybe a side scoop?

If the ECU you are going to use is the original or Hondata then I can recommend a good interface bit of electrical equipment that I used on mine, it connects from the ECU to all the major bits and bobs like fuel pump, reverse light, ignition and so on, you do have to do some cutting and splicing but its not that bad - I did all mine myself with only a smidgin of electrical knowledge.

keep up the good work.

Im loving the updates....
I always like seeing how people, who are tasked with a similar problem, come up with different ideas/ways of doing things. I love the boot mounted rad... it gives the car an even more crazy aspect to it, but as cptkirk says what plans have you got to ensure a good air flow?

Keep us all posted...
