    I've given it the Geeman cursory look-over a couple of times and it gets the vote from me.

    Probably going to be some mods on it that aren't apparent to many people, which makes it all the better.

    Lots of hard work and thought going in to it, which is nice to see.

    the dishes are 1.5 inch radinox to match the rears (no more polishing Smile ) gonna lose a couple of mm from the back of the baskets so they sit in a little more to keep the feds happy, there will still be a little bit of poke on the rears but not much,
    as for the rest of the car the engine is rebuilt and ready to go back in, but the heads away getting worked turns out its an abf head (vw put them on the late corrado's as standard) which flows alot better than the normal 51 casting so it'll be interesting to see what kind of power its gonna put out,its running a vr6 clutch so it should easilly handle it
    The bay itself is still awaiting paint but i've only started extending the loom today so hopefully it'll be getting sprayed this month.
    I was going to change the tank for a diesel gravity fed one but decided to run a lift pump instead after speaking to spenner his mk1 carbs are fed only by the lift pump it'll save alot of work if i can get away with it, any who thats about it really no pics i'm afraid as they're just of a boring empty bay, i do have this pic however i spotted them on ebay and could'nt resist
