mini looks awesome but how about spacing the wheels out slightly to fill the arches and possibly fill the bumper recess in the arches to smoothe the front off. looks great though

So today we mounted the radiator and started to do the clutch cable (just needs some holes drilling).

Is there any way to make the clutch hydraulic? Looking at the idea of a Swift in the back of the Buggy, but a cable clutch would be impractical.

Yes, there is a clutch arm and slave cylinder available of another suzuki vehicle,
or you could just do what i did, and cut down the clutch arm and use the mini slave cylinder :o

New frame bolted on:

Does the measurement from the back of the subframe to the new front rail that you have put in stay exactly the same? My subframe is mounted the opposite way round, but the width must be the same to pick up my tower mountings.

The back of the new front rail is the same position as the front of the old front rail (if that helps).

Is that to clear the exhaust manifold? if so is there another another manifold option that would be slimmer?

That is for the exhaust manifold and the oil filter, you can get a remote oil filter setup from a guy in canada,
and i dont know of a slimmer manifold, and all aftermarket ones seem to be even bigger.
but i think you could get away with it by having the engine more upright as we have the clearance problems with the mini bulkhead.
Or just wait till i have got the swift/mini box working :o :P

There is that option, but it will still end up with only four gears, I'm half way through a 1380 build but think I'm going to sell up & go Swift. It just has more appeal, 5 speed, fuel injected, Japanese reliability, it's just the subframe that's putting me off. Need to read up in your rear engined build how you have done gear linkage as well.

I used a different gearbox that is cable change :xxx:
I would think you could use the same/slightly modify your original setup.

If i had the space i would offer to help, but my mum doesnt like me making a mess.
