    Looks almost finished - although with self builds and modified cars there's always a load of work making all the bits and pieces fit. Still - it's the fun bit - there's the end in sight.

    Nice progress Alex. It looks good. Is that chassis 'to book' or slightly wider?

    Engine is basic spec. I plan to put it through sva like that as I have the log book and reg from the donor vehicle. once SVAd you can put in what you want. Hi Silas........That is the standard "Book" chassis. Do you know there is new "book " out this month , Ithink it is dedicated to the Sierra as a donor. It should also be better written and all the mistakes ironed out.

    They're not mistakes.... they're 'features' ;-)

    Lets hope that the estimated figure for build costs this time doesnt involve the shock fairys leaving you a new set of spax for nothing, the wheel pixies for donating a set of wheels and giving you 50 quid to take them away etc etc.. :D
    250 quid, that still makes me chortle :D
    Ive been known to lurk in locostbuilders.co.uk's middy section ;)
