Z and Escort are still going, slowly

Here is my track MX5 as she was bought






Then some parts








Then came a few track days last year




Friends at the track


Then came a new bit, well a few of them


Centre console trimmed, as I kept having issues on track

Never mind that just hurry up and get that escort finished

Mine done now and whilst the Ratsun is continuing to give me grief I cannot believe how much fun I'm having in the RS2000. Raw fun, so basic but a proper giggle

Which when you consider it was the Focus of its day, just shows how big cars have got. The Z32 was a pretty big car in its day, it's now about the same weight as a lot of hatch backs.

Not a great amount of photos, but the car is progressing. All the little bits are being done, new wiring loom, etc. She has now been lowered and is standard on some nice wheels

Update:-

Unfortunately, its not good news.... the company I was using has been having problems over the last few months and has gone into liquidation. Such a shame has his bodywork skills were brilliant.

The good news, is that the car is being shipped to Sly today for him to finish. Im hoping the list to finish is short, but will see once Sly gets the car.
-wire in dash (maybe some dash and ignition parts) - new loom should be complete
-front brakes need attention
-new steering wheel required
-make it work
-bumpers
-MOT
