    tbh the interior has only came out since its been SORN so don't know how much difference the weight loss has made, my aim for the year is to get a 13.5 quarter mile. I'm trying to keep the outside looking standard(ish) just to really surprise people when she does come back on the road

    when i had the normal interior in i did actually take my grandad for a run round the block, convinced him his 1.6 Sierra wasn't as quick as he thought it was lol

    I have to say...looks like you've been busy and i assume it will be a track car?? otherwise what's the point?
    mainly for drag runs & weekend fun but probably get a few trackdays in, one of my missions is to take it to the Nurburg Ring

    The grille looks naff and i hate the wheels. Looks like you gotta lot to do. Nice colour thou. How much have you spent??
    never been keen on the wheels myself tbh (there is a thread on here trying to sell them 2hrs after i got them lol), but they were reasonably priced & alot stronger to handle the potholes than my previous wheels. I keep threatening to buy some 19" BTCC rims. As for the cost last count the receipts add upto just over £10k, but thats including previous items not just current spec

    Good luck with the build.
    thanks
