You wanna buy it Mitch? Just doing finishing touches then she's up for sale!
Bt1 is slowly coming together, just installed add badges! Waiting in bailey channel so I can put that in and door trims then front moulds and externally the car would be. 95% complete ! Still dredding the wiring for the motor and also removing old tank and installing droppy as I've never done it before!

Why are you worried about wiring the motor mate? are you going aftermarket ecu?

Droptank should be a piece of piss too.

Nah, you'll be fine mate!

The fuel tank will be easier with a spare pare of hands though.

Installed remaining badges!
Was missing most of the screws and mould clips so had to custom make some brackets, soooo painful!

Tank is easy, putting a drop tank in is actually easier than standard one because the neck is seperate

Ok update time

-Finished restoring all 4 wheels
-Installed all new wheel bearings as front passenger was stuffed
-installed brand new front rotors and pads
-fitted plug into roof
Never done brakes before and it wasn't too bad, drivers side took 30 mins to remove bearings rotor and pads + refit and passenger took 4 hours hence the stuffed bearing would not move!

Next step is install drop tank, tighten handbrake cable and also stick roof bt1 number sticker on roof! Then it's time to install loom onto engine and drop it in!

Moving house in 2 weeks to 5 car garage (soon to be 6) so looking forward to the extra room and comfort!

Handbrake fixed
Sticker on
Stickers has lots of bubbles and I am furious about it, gotta get a pro to redo it!
Next on list is drop tank!
Do you guys remove whole tank and neck? Or remove tank and leave neck and join tank up to existing neck or is their length issues?
