Hey folks. Exams done! first year done! now to get the mini done. My aim is to have it running by mid september. 

 

Just removed the loom from the honda, waiting for an engine crane. Got everything ordered from allspeed.

Just a little progress, havent been keeping up with the photos to be honest. :( also been waiting for ages for minispares to get me a check panel in so wasnt able to finish off the nearside pillar. (all sorted now).
 
Got the glass lined up, just. weekends task is to weld scuttle in place and get the a panels on. 
 
Quick question also regarding the non genuine panel that the A panels wrap around. Does this need trimming for the A panel to fit? I think is is slightly over curved.
 
I will try remember to keep it more updated from now on. Plan over summer is to get it running and dry built! :)

Managed to shoehorn the engine in today to get the box cut and check clearances. 

 

 

 

 

Its a tad tight on the sump side though. Does this look too close?

 

 

 

Also got the cage in a rough position, got the plates cut and ready to weld in.

 

 

 
Quick question also. What needs to be transplanted from the b18c4 inlet manifold to the skunk 2 one?
 

 

Can i leave this thing off?

 

 

 

Thanks
