Default AWD K20 Build

Made a start with the K20 build now the B18AWD is 99% done.
Picked up the donor body last Saturday.. was cheap, sandblasted and ready to be cut up by me !!

So, .. we now have a body, AWD frame and a dummy K20 engine. Will get the AWD tranny this week and we can start.. Because the mini will keep his standard nose i will remove the firewall and make a new one 15cm back.

Good stuff, I look forward to seeing this as it progresses!

Random thought... I'd love to see a mini with a central drivers seat and seeing as you're moving the bulkhead...

2nd related random thought... I also wonder if with the rear bench removed, will 2 buckets fit in an McLaren F1 style layout... Legless passengers only perhaps

little update.. not much done during the summer.. this winter I will be working on this project more

Finished the roll cage and made a start with creating a new firewall. the shell will be sandwiched between de front subframe and the roll cage. Ordered a diesel (N) CRV 6-speed gearbox and will star building the subframe when it arrives

Still working on it but winter is around the corner and will be spending a lot more time in the shop then .. its now 60% straight, still need to do the roof this weekend. then it will go back onto my welding table and start with the front frame, firewall and the flipfront.
