Not that I know I have called some companies but they will not touch cars, I'll try and get in contact with rightline motorsport or allumy motorsport or endaf Owens, although so have tried multiple times to contact endaf and cannnot get through

Right so little bit of an update it really isn't much as progress has been slow! I now have an all speed frame one of the new style ones and one of custom cages Kigali a cage! So hopefully in the next month or so the shell will be all welded up and ready to go to the body shop for painting!

Right so another update haven’t had one in a while! So I have sold the roll cage and ordered the red frame from AWD! So it’s feeling like 1 step forward two steps back! I have spoken to kad whilst planning the build and they have said that they will look into doing a set of rear brakes for me and a front roll bar!
I’m also selling the carbon floor and Kevlar boot lid now, I feel that the Kevlar will not go with the Audi bardo grey! So I’m thinking of getting one made which is carbon exposed weave outside and the frame on the inside in Kevlar to run with that theme! I have also spoke to The Arc Angels and will hopefully be getting a custom front with a bit of a twist!
Can anyone help with the pictures to why they are no longer working?

Alex

Will help you out with some pics of your AWD frame (in progress) to keep your build tread complete.

Right so made a few phone calls this morning to try and get some quotes with regards to the engine build, manifold, turbo, exhaust, intercoolers and radiator fabrication, it was a bit more the expected but both are off high end fabricators and engine builders!

So the plan now is to build up both frames front and rear then send it off to endaf owens for the roll cage fabrication i don't know if this is a smart idea in the way i am doing it or would it be best to get the engine built then send it to endaf for the fabrication of the shell and then finally the manifolds what would you guys suggest?

So the rear arrived from AWD just before Christmas so it was like christmas had come early, i don't think i have ever been so excited over something being delivered!
The frame


After i finished work one day i thought i would quickly run up to the local scrap yard to see if they had anything that may help and by chance they have two honda Crv's with everything i need so I've bought both drive trains and engines!

The one has even been declared as scrap yet!



I managed to get the diff off of the one yesterday as i only had an hour spare so i thought i would get what i could!

With the diff just sitting in so i could get an idea of what i need for the rest of the frame!





I am trying to work out if i could get a custom set of rear flanges made that will fit the mazda hubs so i can still use mini parts! i don't mind mixing and matchin but i feel that it just may look nicer and be more helpful in the future, does anyone know if KAD or force racing may be able to help?

Iím going to machine front mini hubs to 4-100 PDC, better off with the 12 mm studs etc.

Well another idea I had was to remove the studs off of the Mazda flange and weld them to the mini pcd? Is that possible or is that a stupid idea?
