Quote from: Danny Scarbro on April 6, 2022, 09:45Another little update, had an afternoon free and it was a nice day so I degreased and sanded down the subframe. I was pleased to see its in pretty good condition. I rust treated any areas that were just showing signs of rust starting then gave it a few coats of hammerite. Another job on the list was to give the engine bay abit of a tidy up and paint whilst the engine is out. So again I dregreased, sanded down and painted it. I've always not liked it when engine bays are a dull finish compared to the rest of the paint on the car so I matched it up to the outside. Then put the subframe and wheels back on so I can push it in and out the garage till the engine goes back in. Am going to get the engine degreased and painted today and fingers crossed the ITBs should be arriving so I'll post some pics up later! Dan

Quote from: JB21 on May 10, 2022, 07:38Looking good Dan. Cant believe how far right the engine sits in the bay compared to my 2ZZ. You gonna get it corner weighted once complete?
Quote from: Danny Scarbro on February 22, 2022, 21:38Over the next few weeks we got the driveshafts swapped over and I also received a new gear shifter set up I had ordered. It's a work of art and feels really nice albeit I do need to spend some time fiddling with the set up to get it right. We were then booked onto Blyton for a trackday between Christmas and new year, we always book on these as it's pretty much guaranteed to be cold wet slippy and lots of fun with Blyton been perfect to get some car control practice in! Needless to say the weather didn't disappoint and neither did the car, was great fun all day and the Marshall's were really good and allowed for some sideways action. And a good mid corner moment captured from behind;And of course the obligatory moment when ambition out weighed capabilities....What did I say earlier about them not been too bad on the limit 😂 Dan
Quote from: SuperArt on February 11, 2024, 11:32Mechanically one of the cleaner builds I've seen, nice job. I don't like cut bumpers, so aesthetically only the back doesn't sit right with me until two big snails are on display.Still surprised you went away from lotus ownership, shouldn't they rise in value faster than these cars thus making them worth maintaining? Especially compared to a modded roadster.Or am I missing something.
