    It`s 8m long 4m wide, less the 850mm rack, so should be enough room. No room for a 4 post tho. but there`s one in another workshop around the back I can use when I need to, just got to give a couple of days notice.

    Things to do ..........
    1. Completely change the fuel system. New tank/filter/pump/regulator.
    2. Make a new throttle pedal.
    3. Realign propshaft.
    4. Sort out the gear selector problem.
    5. Fit bonnet pins / saftey strap.
    6. Fit p/side carpet and seat and rest of the rollcage.
    7. Get doors repainted
    8. Get centre console / dash retrimmed
    9. Retrim boot and back seat area where fuel tank and pump were.
    10 A bit of touching up here and there.

    That`s it ................. I think.

    Sent some pics of the dash and centre console to Carisma, they came back with a ballpark of £600 - £900, but want to see it before they commit.
    Should get a price from ATL on the fuel cell and other bits tomorrow. Not expecting much change from £1000 tho

    In true Pete style, if it doesn't exist, go fabricate

    Gotta respect that
