I'm back !! took a 3 week break to the Algarve, have a mate out there, so not to expensive. No phone, no internet, no TV and I didn't even buy a paper. Wall to wall sunshine, lowest temp was 26, highest 33. Totally chilled. I swam, drank local wine, walked for miles, ate loads of shell fish and slept. Colour of an old sideboard now and thought I was ready to kick the world again. Came home to rain and doom and gloom, did I really just come back ??

Bit of a trial fit of the bodywork, the back wheels over hang the wings and the front ones do not fit the clamshell wings. Things to sort later. Hope today to get the shocks and springs all welded up, if the rain holds off.

This is the look I think I'm after, low at the front, not certain what to do with the grill opening.

Trial engine fit (lifted the car over the engine) having to weld some extra bits in to take the engine mounts.

Love that front end look. Very sporty.
An amazing transformation from the poor beast we dragged out of that lock-up. Well done. Smiley

This is the front of my nephew's A7 special - not really a suggestion but thought I'd post it as it's a bit different....

summers back  Cheesy Finished fabricating and welding all the suspension mounts, I now have a rolling chassis unhindered and free to roll around. Still a lot to fabricate and fit but if its dry I can work outside which I prefer to artificial lights. So, here is the posse  Grin red one trying to get out on this lovely morning.
