Had a problem with the drive shaft not sitting in the diff correctly, turned out I had the wrong cv joints so ordered mgf one and they fitted perfect but had to remake both shafts

I have to say Jack, you have ruined this with the intercooler stuck out like that. I thought you had the brilliant idea of moving the turbo to keep the standard looks. Now it's dead obvious again what's under the bonnet.

Never wanted a standard look, just didn't want all the turbo hanging out the front

Looking good mate.
What's the plans for the rest of the car? I quite like the intercooler on show as long as the rest of the car suits it

Plan for the rest is side exit exhaust, hole saw the a panels, paint will be a light shade of grey with black roof and interior is stripped out two bucket seats and roll cage.

Sounds like it'll be pretty smart when it's finished
I'm going to vent the a panels on mine as well but can't decide whether to cut holes in them or buy the vents from abs Motorsport

Bit more progress, exhaust is made, door cards fitted, made a start on the dash board just waiting for the digital dash to finish that, drilled the a panels, mini loom is nearly finished just got to make the rear half, also have found an intercooler that should fit under the bonnet!

Intercooler would look better set into the grill I reckon and be a little less vulnerable
