Hi all, first post so here goes. As the title says, Ive started the (slow) road to building an 037. Ive started with a 1976 scorpion, just because I wanted LHD, and the shell was in really good shape. Anyway, as a result of stripping the car, I have a lot of parts available, which I will not be using. Engine, Trans, front and rear suspension etc.
If anyones looking for parts, send me a message. Id rather try here first than Ebay.

Shells about ready for blasting. Then the work really begins.

Hi, not using a kit. The bodywork (kevlar) came from pitlane in Austria. not very good quality, but thats a separate thread on its own. Anyway,
the front and rear subframes Ill make in house, luckily I restore and weld classic cars, so thats not an issue. I do have a ZF transaxle, as per original,
the rest I will fabricate, and use off the shelf parts where possible. I want the car to look as close to original as possible, however, I intend to use it: A lot!!
So, reliability is first and foremost, second only to safety.

Are you aware of Mick Covill? He's in the UK and can supply front and rear subframes plus bodywork!

I am, spoke to him a couple of times, very helpful bloke. as I said earlier, I already have a full set of panels, and I can fabricate my own sub frames.

Looks like you've got it all in hand - but let me know if you need any dimensions or pics - or if you need to come and check anything on mine. I'm in Herefordshire.

What engine are you aiming for?

Cheers,
Justin.

Many thanks, that's a very generous offer. The Engine:
I did quite a bit of soul searching on this one, I really wanted to use a Lancia engine, however, usability, reliability, and simplicity are my priorities.
In the end, Ive decided to use a Honda K24 naturally aspirated. this will produce when built around 290BHP, more than enough for my purposes.
A new bell housing will be machined up to mate it with the ZF, so as a package it should work well. I know the purists will no doubt hate me for this,
but at the end of the day, the car needs to be reliable. There's also a cost element to consider, the cost of the transaxle, and changing the final drive
has not been a cheap exercise.

Not much to report. Shell gets blasted next week, so in the meantime Iíve made a frame
That makes moving around easier, and will also serve as a Jig, when I do the subframes. I might have a couple of TVR chassis to make, so it will come in useful.

picked the shell up yesterday, no hidden surprises luckily. happy with the result, at least now Ive got clean metal to weld to, the etch primer is just to protect
for now.
