Nice project im watching this very carefully as im planning on doing the same
Are you planning on getting the speedo recalibrated if your using the honda clocks? Also what petrol tank are you using?
yeah i have been speaking to a company called speedycables about getting it all recalibrated, but the signal from the engine is electrical not a cable like a mini so the guy down there sais he is going to lok into it for me.
As for the tank im going to use an MPI mini tank with an uprated pump that works to the same PSI as the honda one. Im not sure if i can use the standard mini supply as the return fuel line yet though.... Any ideas guys?

Ok i finaly got fed up with either waiting for welders or getting stupid quote (+ £1000) so i decided to admit defeat with this shell and get rid of it and source a rust free one (and i mean it this time ). so fleabay was called upon and this is the result. Totaly bare shell with all welding already been carried out to a high standard. It cost £850 including fuel to get it home so i think it was a bit of a bargain.

The next stage made me think twice but i now had to butcher a 100% perfect shell to make room for the honda lump and manifold, this included inner wing and bulk head mods.
Once cut the bulkhead had the new box created from my erlier template welded into place.

And then painted

I am not entirely happy with the box and the welding the box had to be bent to match the shape of the bulkhed but the inlet is going to fill this so im not to bothered. Another coat of paint will be coming very soon.
I then set about completely painting and undersealing the bottom of the car. i left the extremes of the sills bare from underseal as i wanted it to look nice when finished.

I then set about assembaling the rear subframe assembaly. Everything apart from the recon radius arms and brake back plates is brand new. Nice to actually be putting things back together lol. This was then fitted back on the car with the alloy rear drums.

The brand new steering rack and longer track rod ends were fitted to the car.

Next the engine is going in for the final time and a steering column put in so i have a roling shell. That would have been happening now but the weather is doggy doo. But thats been my progress since my last update. should be coming along alot faster soon.
