Erm..... lol... Not quite max.....  :D

 As i say, hopefully gearbox and FMIC next month, ready for charger rebuild and some additional porting/injectors/map. The usual, then see where i end up. 180 bhp and i'll be happy (ish) :-)

 I need to get a few more pics, if i remember i'll get on it at dinner, Pics of seats and the bay now its abit tidier :-)

Started on making things lighter, these are a pair of doors i got off Tez a couple of weeks ago, outside handle is now off an Audi A4.




 The scruffy after thought of a window winder is only on the drivers side. I dont have a heater in the car so need to wind the window down to stop condensation. The back of the winder metal has some fibreglass angle iron and the front has a ''doorcard'' cover, as seen below:




 This is a ''during'' pic of the wing:



 Wings have no side reps, trimmed metal along the front where it bolts to the wing mount bit and the top edge has had the spreader plate moved and the metal under trimmed back between the bolts.

 Finally a pic of a piece im working on, 25" across, sure you can all work out what it is :-)

Orite Ryan, its just hole sawed and then a homemade hole flare to roll the edge abit. Adds abit of strength back in from drilling a hole :-D

No real update sorry to say but the car is now off the road for a substantial amount of months getting another rebuild, stiffening and interior/underside painting this time :-)

bay looks fresh tbh, did you have to use much filler when removiing the scuttle?
