The name of the picture suggests that it's going to be a 6R4 replica I believe.

Time for another update, chassis being delivered a week Friday thumbup panic stations at home as garage only got plastered on Friday, still got to paint walls and floor, fit lights and make a workbench!...

Managed to pick a few bits up along the way, starting with the transaxle a UN1-13




It needed a little tlc so after a quick trip up north it came back like this





Also got a dash board which was kindly delivered 100mils by the seller for free




Sadly on delivery he failed to see my Dad's car and only stopped after pushing it 4ft into the road!!! furiousfrown


doh!!

This was the last time I saw my chassis, I have this, all of the aluminium for the paneling and the build stands coming with my first delivery.





Delivery pics to come biggrin

Not sure, but I would guess by using copius amounts of cash on it laugh

It does look lovely, going to be a great build I suspect....

Ha ha, if there is one thing that is lacking in this build it is copious amounts of cash....

I think it involved sand blasting and a hell of a lot of elbow grease.

Woohoo, it arrived yesterday...

Unfortunately this rubbish weather has meant I have been unable to paint the floor as it's too cold which in turn means I can't build a work bench, so it will probably be a few weeks before I can get cracking, can't wait though.

Make sure you keep that second last picture as that is exactly the type of photo you should submit when you apply for IVA.
