A little late to this I know, but my mate is currently at the same stage. He's got the engine & box in (just) and was doing the centre mount on Saturday and is going to start the wiring/cooling/driveshaft things. The n/s shaft looks like its going to be mighty short - any ideas where he can get some made up? We're in the Oldham area.

lol no problem man :-

A) the splitter is a laguna splitter of a renalt laguna i saw in the scrapyard £20
b) the the grils are the chrome ones sprayed up black i did it miself cost £15 in paint
c) to do the front lights you need to heat them in the oven prise the glas off when the glue is hot then spend time painting the bit inside black, then seal it back up.

yes youll get a briefing on the day. However the aim is not to race, believe it or not. Its simply to have fun with your car, if a faster car comes up from behind you your supposed to let them past.

I could build my car myself very easly...but as I've said before, I have neither the time or resources to build the car!

I have a #### load of respect for you attempting the swap yourself, as it ain't easy!

Good luck to you on competing on the track, where ever it may be, but I'm not really a track person, hence why I am setting it up for the strip!

Cheers anyways!

Dave

P.S. It would be good to get against each other on the track just to see how well mine would fair up!
