Postby FRSJON on Sun Oct 17, 2010 7:52 pm

recently a mate of mine bought k18 ufo off of carbonboy 67,shaun bought the shell over for us.
Image

Image

Image



the shell is rolling but thats about it :lol: lots to do :oooh:

the suspesion on the car has to go back to shaun so today we fitted a new set of gaz coilovers

Image

Image

next up way a set of st170 front brakes

Image

Image

we are trying to make this car my mates and not shauns 'old' car buy fitting parts we have picked but as the shell has been modified to take certain parts its in our interest to buy them off shaun :D

one pro alloy fuel cell :Q :Q :Q

Image

Image

plus a set of the many euro rear lights shaun has :lol:

Image
we also fitted the new wheels too. comp mo's with toyo 888's :Q
Image

the car will be a 2ltr zetec turbo which im building which hopefully will be running around the 250-280 bhp mark.
as you can see we are in the early stages of the build but hope for the car to be on the road and used in anger around ford fair next year. updates to follow :Q

Good luck with it mate, I still have lots of lovely parts here waiting for you and Nathan :wink:

Can't wait to see it finished now, chop chop :lol:
