Let there be paint on the inside  :)

It's not 100% perfect but that will do its a race car not a show car :)



And that's  me done for the night.

The colour is on it will come to life more once it's lacquered



Tomorrow I'll paint the doors , boot and bonnet and then a case of bolting them on.

I'll paint the engine bay when I do the dash pod as that's going to be green :)

Season has already started but with me being ill for quite a while , bad weather and delays on getting the engine back from Machine shop which I'm still waiting on.

I can then get engine built back up and in and the suspention parts arrive beginning of next week then I can get the car sitting like a stock rod then it's just about ready to go :)

Got the suspention on the other night it now sits like a stock rod and has the camber to N/S/F wheel

The car now runs 2.25 springs that way I can easily alter the length and lb of spring if i need to tweek the handling I should not be to far of with the length an lb I have chosen.

The car also now on Gaz shocks all round which are valved correctly for a stock rod.


If you look you will see the car leans to O/S/F as I race in a clockwise direction



Here is the camber added



I have since tidied the garage up as it was looking a right mess

Yes mate the local track decided to alter rules and mess the formula around and someone from Scotland offered me silly money for it so sold it I may now build a rookie rod which is similar but the formula is more settled and don't get messed around.

Here is some pics the new owner sent me out on the track being enjoyed
