another angle. depending when I get the roll cage made, I might throw some primer at the front.

Picked the engine up, change of plan over the Honda choice. got fed up of waiting for a quote etc. Anyway, a friend of mine knew of an engine going.
A Paul Gardner 2.3 Duratec, plug and play, dry dumped etc. around 280BHP. should be enough, and lots of low down torque. The big plus is its light.
Two of us can easily pick it up. The Gearbox will be ready mid Jan, so I can figure a way of joining them together, and we can get on with the rear subframe, once the cage is made and installed.

Im not working towards an event in that sense. Ive been planning this for a couple of years, gradually collecting parts. Im trying to fabricate as much as possible,
and do the work in house. Theres a long way to go, but so far its all gone well.

They are. Its a shame, because when I originally thought about this as a project, a few years ago now, my plan was to get Guy croft to build me an engine. He was such a helpful man, sold me some parts and gave a lot of help, willingly I might add, when I restored a 124 spider years ago. Sadly, as most of us know, he passed away. Left a huge void, as far as Im concerned. Being a bit old fashioned, that sort of put me off using someone who I didn't know, hence my engine dilemma. As Ive said before, usability and drivability are essential.

Right, so the last of the rear is now cut out, and two plates welded in to the sides for strength. Next job is the roll cage.

Main hoop for the cage. A couple of tweeks and its about there. The two plates at the sides are just visible on this one.

made some good progress with the roll cage today. the main bits are not far off, I've tacked them together with the MIG. Ill pull the cage back
to get to the awkward bits, and then TIG weld the whole lot together.

Looking fabulous, do you work off drawings or just experience?
What's the plan for the rear end, building a subframe section?
Are you converting to RHD?

I have a few drawings, some measurements, but mainly by eye. Ill make the subframes from scratch, the rear will have to wait until I have the gearbox back and joined it to the engine. That's the slightly tricky bit, no one as far as I know has joined a Duratec and a ZF transaxle together. Once that's done, As I have the bodywork, I can line the engine and box on the bottom two rails and work up. The front should be a lot easier.
