Roundnose D Series Conversion
Posted 27 August 2015 - 09:52 PM
Here it is as I got it
Brought some wheels
Some mk2 rear lights
Test. Polished a wheel
Brought some panels
Made access on the car a little easier
What remains underneath
Most of it cut out, rust treated and started cleaning it up
This is the reason it took so long
Got a few things planned that are a bit different to the norm (hopefully), will reveal them as I get to them.

Good choice on engine and front, goes well and better choice for final drive and gearing (important)
So not too much work needed then...
Whats the plans or is all top secret
Mk2 is too mint! I had two mk1's both supersports, one black red stripe then got a red with a black stripe from a work colleague, then bought my sisters mk2 popular plus and it pretty much fell apart a couple of days later (never buy from siblings!)
Lovely example there

You can have the dizzy for £20. If you want the carbs, manifold and dizzy then its £50. All plus postage though.
Now that's a good deal I think.

what subframes are there for the d-series? or is it a home made job?

It'll be home made. I think your only options are mini-tec or modify an allspeed frame to fit.
always liked the idea of a d-series. surprisingly quick engines. The only thing thats put me off is not being able to make a subframe
look forward to seeing updates !

Tacked a plate in
Welded a blank in for the filler neck
Filled in the screw holes for the arches
Also had a look behind the flitch repair
