I had a good day yesterday and managed to get the gearbox pretty much where I want it to be.

I had to notch the subframe to allow the gearbox move across.






Its a bit of a snug fit....






Then had to trim back to increase clearance for the gear change
.

Plenty of space.


And cut a small notch to clear the diff housing.


Then trim out the tower hole to clear the CV boot.


CV clearance with drive shaft hanging from a bungee



Ive also managed to source a Mk1 Punto 60 engine with a blown head gasket from the same mate who gave me the gearbox, so that will help me get the engine mount sorted, I might use the 60 bottom end and replace the head gasket and fit a Punto 75 head and cam Ive just won on eBay.
