At this stage all we are doing is pulling the car down to the shell, disassembling all the bits and pieces and establishing where we are going to start. Basically that decision has been made and we have decided to carry out the suspension work first then the Roll Cage and finally re-install the modified engine and gear box. As we have some limitations to useable space we've decided to make the car - "pushable around" as much as possible and that means we need to minimise time without suspension and wheels. It's all a bit boring at present because all that is happening is that we are accumulating a pile of "stuff" as we pull everything apart.
We have found however that we have a very sound and straight - rust free - shell to start with. Many projects such as ours start off with a lot less. A few photos as we pull things apart: -
Interior stripped and making ready to install roll cage
Errr - yes - we do have a few spare engines and gear boxes.
