Excellent Job CRM!

Your front suspension looks like new, great job, is it refurbished or new components?

Front brakes, original or aftermarket? (a weakness on all S3s).

The rest of the car also looking fantastic, keep it up.

Hi, Thanks everyone for following my project, As is always the case has cost more than budgeted, and always knew i would spend more than its worth.
Although as you have seen i repainted it in its original colour, i put the side turbo skirts on after so i need to paint the sills again, there is a couple of spider marks that have come back through so will paint front and roof again.
The engine was rebuilt some time ago but has not done much work since, no plans to do anything else till its up and running.
Can you believe i have never driven an Esprit, never even really seen one up close! so a lot of learning along the way.
Main Mistake so far- Rule one, (that i was aware of but chose to ignore,) Dont buy a car in bits!
Wish i had changed engine to something else,
Near future- get up and running and roadworthy, then lower suspension, upgrade brakes?
More pics to follow.
