not sure I’m going to have space to put a floor in, exhaust manifold and large turbo will occupy a lot of the space and then have to work out silencer positioning.
I’m planning on using a lot of heat shielding. as I’m sure heat is going to be my biggest problem.
Do you have any pics Victor, of your heat shielding?

thanks.....another day of fettling rear clam. A lot of work needed on these.

Not much progress over last few months, too cold and busy with work things and taking Mrs away for hols etc.
LSD now being fitted, decided on Maxx Sport ECU system and one of the GARW dash consoles, so should have some good info available.

Next issue for me is get some wheels for this, and get it rolling - I'm looking at Team Dynamics - Pro Race 1.2's, but they would need to be bespoke for this project - S2 hubs, so 4 x 100mm PCD bolt pattern - 18" x 10" rears 17" x 9" fronts - anyone got experience of these wheels and where to get them from?

Will post some pics when I've made some noticeable progress, roll on spring!

loads of wheels are on 100pcd so broaden your search and think out of the box and you should have a much wider selection.
TD 1.2 are sh!t, heavy and not particularly attractive. Much better looking wheel out there.
Golf R (daily spec)
T6 (rebuild house spec)
Mk1 Escort (Still a bare shell spec)
Ducati Supersport S (:D )
Ducati Scrambler FT (Wife’s bike)
