Nice thorough build.

More on engine mounts here, if you were inclined: http://www.rallyanarchy.com/phorum/read.php?5,99187

John, white wheels - or gold?





Maybe, just maybe, it’s down to the driver.

Yes. Traditional rally white. Gold---richer rather than brassier, even yellow.

New IP pump in to cure some high EGT issues (nothing like finding out you've had the wrong IP in your car since day one and been fighting a low pressure pump not anything else the whole time)

and a pic of the new contrasting wheels ;-)

A few updates in the winter months.

Cleaned door cards (helps to have a bro-in-law work as a high end boat builder)


New to me trailer


Test fitted the light pod (again)


Next up is some better seat mounts, better skidplate mount and waiting for the Hotbits to come back from rebuild (had a small issue)


And got some proper gravel wheels
