    Looking like progress :welder::D

    You might want to stuff a rag or something into open pipework (especially the turbo intake) - nothing worse than finding a dropped nut or bolt in there first time you fire it up ;)

    Cool project!

    I was just thinking the other day how I'd like to do something similar to an Alfa Spider (convert to RWD), but, I don't have the spare cash or skills or space, and besides I have a 6 litre RX7 now anyway which keeps me plenty occupied and skint :)

    Mmmmm, my brother did that, and forgot about the rag. It didn't destroy the turbo, but it wasn't pretty.

    Masking tape or foil tape works well over places you want to keep clean like exposed inlet ports.

    but it was the type of job i could not rush and every thing had to be spot on, also made a jig for the center of the wheels but never took a pic.

    this is how the subframe will be bolted to the box section that will be welded to the chassis
