Well after stripping down rebuilding interior ect i came across chewed wiring so looks like the dog has been under it the little Twit. Had alot of other things to sort away from car so it was put on the backburner. Another car came up and me being me cudnt resist another project so did some number crunching and it seemed the most logical to hold my plans on polybushing everything uprating the running gear and put some effort into the engine. Anyway ended up parting with the v5 shell as it was getting beyond a joke how much was different to a pre faclift . Got hold of a rolling prefacelift car without its engine. Allready having a full interior and the rest of the parts needed to put the car together minus engine it got stripped at a mates house and stored the parts as my spare room is full. Most the interior is in the for sale section.
Soo project plans are still on and i will Continue this thread with project.2 lol
Plans are still for 400 bhp and a few choice stying to my usual way of portraying my charecter through the car
A couple photos to kick it off i think
Thanks for reading Smile

Then mark (maxboost) posted his up which gave me the inspiration to carry on soooo here is a update of how she stand now. Frankenscoob .2
Bought some wings and doors with correct mirrors for a good price hoping they where a colour match BUT seems the car was resprayed a different shade on the rear arch which was blended to most rear quarter you can see in pic. Not exatcly 406 silver but nvm i have plans for this for full wrap or respray

Cheers bud its came a long way from a shell i was goin to fit gearbox and diff but im insure as just goin to go 6 speed straight away as need new clutch anyway seems pointless buying a 5 speed clutch to just wreck the gearbox may aswell get some money back and throw it back at the car itself
Cars getting wrapped by me and deano soon well a tester of one side to see what it looks like but ill take photos of that in action for the lads following the thread. Lost count of man hours but im still well under budget with this for now Smile

Been mainly sorting through parts n just pottering on with this decided to smooth the doors off and delock passenger side. Leaving the old lock in for added security
Doors still need painstaking sanding as im no profesional bodyshop guy lol itl still be spot on just more sanding as i tend to go overboard with filler
