    Talking Dazab's V70 T5 Project Race Car

    Well guys the time has arrived and i have finally got the v70 i was on about in my other project thread, few plans for this V70 are being thrown around, possibility of maybe trying for a RWD T5 for a bit of fun, maybe FWD or AWD, i will decide more as time goes on but going to show you all step by step as the project grows, unfortunately it wont be ready for cadwell in feb but the engine that is in this (2.4 20v Turbo) is going into my XLT after a full rebuild as its done over 300k haha and a little upgrading to get my much loved XLT upto hopefully around 250bhp if not more, anyways enough boring you and here some pics, please bear in mind i have only just got it and cost me only 200 so its a bit dirty

    Day 1 Of Ownership:















    There will be a few bits for sale as im light weighting as much as possible like the leather interior etc but will post them when i have removed, anyways going to shoot for now and get ready for the long hard work ahead of me

    ok guys day 2, got most of the interior out, what fun, still got plenty to do but having a small break before carrying on, thought i would take some more pics and show u my progress

    ok so this morning it looked like this:









    then got the interior out:



    looks a little like this now lol:







    and here is all the bits and pieces taken out so far, imagine the weight loss!! lol



    there is loads of little bits up for sale, most of it for free so if you need anything like plastics etc let me know.

    Well going to carry on and will get some more pictures of the progress as it goes

    Thanks!! Lets see if Adam has a seat for you, and I might come up with that anyway. I'll be using the T5 more after it's had the work done tomorrow, so a spin out to Morecambe would be nice. We really like Glasson for walkng the dogs, so we could go there as well.
