The external Fire Extinguisher and Kill switches are now installed and ready to be wired in.

And just finished the drivers and passengers floors and sat them in place, looks quite neat if I do say so myself.

Thanks guys, believe it or not the sequential box isn't too bad for the road even with the OS Giken triple plate clutch, but
the only issue might be the heat... gunna be a sauna in there in traffic !!! lol

Wow, I wish you were doing this a couple years ago when I was in England, I'd have offered some free help just for a ride.

I have to say, yours is shaping up to be my favorite 20B FD, not including mine, of course
Keep up the good work!

Maybe by the time you get it done I will find another job in the UK and I can come see it...

Thank you my good man, I hope she lives up to all our expectations, and if you come back to the uk you're more than welcome to have a pax ride, I'm
always happy to have new cup-holders on board !!

Only one pic took tonight.... sorry slacking.

The entire exhaust has now been welded, just one small bracket to fabricate and then thats another job done

The passenger floor is now in place and we've started dismantling the whole car ready for the rolling shell to go to paint either
on Sunday or Monday.

Right, sorry for the lack of pics, to be honest not much has happened as I seem to have lost all motivation but
we loaded K-II into the caravan and took her to her new home for the next 2-3 weeks, just went down there to
drop the rear lights only to find they've already started work on her. starting to feel a bit more with it again.


This is a very novel place to install the inside door handle !! lol

And here are a few of her as they're getting the shutlines and surfaces prepared.

Lol, she should be at the body shop for 2 weeks Ryan, I'm taking the exhaust for ceramic coating on Monday and I've sent a few engine bay
bits away for polishing, it's starting to get to the exciting stage now.

A few more of the beastie outside the booth, the inner wheel arches have now been treated and hardened and the
engine bay has a fresh white layer.
