'76 VTEC Clubby

I had planned to rebuild a spare 850 engine I had and see how much power I could eek out this fantastic little engine! However, after chipping the block and writing off the crank, my plans had to change!! So now I'm just using the gearbox from the 850 and I'll be sourcing a 998 short engine.
So heres a quick list of bits I bought so far:Spax RSX519 coilovers
MiniSport Billet Alu 4 pot brakes
Cobra Imola Kevlar seat
Cobra Monaco seat (for passenger!)
Solid subframe mounts
Uprated adjustable tie-rods
I'm not sure whether I'll be using the flipfront yet. Prefer to keep it a Clubman front, and if I can get it through with the current panels I will.
Jobs to do:
Weld in repairs to rear subframe mount panel, driver footwell and new A-panel
Fit new seats
Clean up new subframe and have it powder coated
Build up engine and fit to subframe
Fit coilovers and brakes
Fit subrame complete with engine
Refit fuel tank with new hose (snapped last one!)
So here are the pics!

I have not got a clubman yet, so I will see how you get on. Plus when I get one, I can get tips from you.

I'm going to try and weld the floorpan and the A-panel myself, however theres a couple of holes in the rear pocket and at the bottom of the rear arch, which I'm thinking maybe a MOT fail, will try and get it through though!!
