Trying to shoehorn the engine and gearbox into the back end, lots of modifications and custom parts to be made, while still finding rotten panels that need replacing.

Front doors de-skinned ready for cutting to fit around the front tubs.

We have ordered in a stainless header system but it hangs too low under the engine, which now has a shortened sump fitted.

So first up we are cutting it up and remaking it.

So the engine is now away being fully rebuilt with forged rods, pistons upgraded turbo and injectors etc

The air ride management is here, Full 3H setup with WiFi control, latest spun alloy in tank compressor etc etc

We are now onto making the custom chassis cage and engine/gearbox cradle!

Good reason to buy in more kit...
