  1. car really starting to come together now. got the engine back from the machine shop and gave it a coat of paint.wiring loom is now 90% done and the pedal box is bolted in with just the fluid to add to make the brakes work. even managed to airbrush the intake pipe. heres some pics where im at. http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/006_zps5a5opiqg.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/014_zpsdt3qabqz.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/012_zpsbzm2gpfv.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/004_zpssn4iyva9.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/010_zpshmkbxq1w.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/007_zpsv11v8jfi.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/009_zpscqzolw8s.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/011_zpskw6jrvgj.jpg

  5. thanks for the comments, bonkers it is lock to lock is the same as a mk4 escort so will be ok as a daliy the front suspension is narrowed like an aircooled vw , this enables the front wheels to turn as normal ( front wheels run 245x30x20 tyres). its been one of the toughest mods to do and still be able to put all the bits in the engine bay. the whole frame sits 5" off the floor so there is plenty of ground clearance and it all sits on coilovers. it is 46" to the top of roof, its low . more soon
  6. thought you might like an update. loads done and its off the jig on its wheels. evo king. once car has done a few shows it will become my daily driver as for the twin wastegates, why not http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/008_zps4f350a06.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/010_zps29b6bbb8.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/008_zpsa8435b7a.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/006_zpsa313f830.jpg hoping to have the engine running very soon.
  7. finally got the body sat on the frame, all seams to fit ok. http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/016_zps7af9f390.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/015_zps1c058788.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/013_zpsb35d5596.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/008-1_zpsc2218031.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/006-3_zps66e41dff.jpg more soon.
  8. car will be my daily once its been to a few shows. i know what your saying about the turbo but it does not have a bad write up so thought at the price it was worth a dabble. spent about six months looking into turbo set ups and i feel this set up was best for my intended use. there is also an lpg conversion to be done to make it a bit lighter on the pocket.
  9. thanks alot stoo2000 heres a few more pics,got the turbo mounted http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/015_zpse8272af6.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/014_zps6c277559.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/005-3_zps66089024.jpg also got the steering rack in place. http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/013_zps54ce61f2.jpg http://i667.photobucket.com/albums/vv31/fassty/012-1_zpsc2284f79.jpg going to have another late night on thursday to get some more of the exhaust done as there are a few bits on order that should land by thursday.
