    Painting facilities at this garage are nothing special at all. But as with the metal work and the limited tools. The limited facilities still turn out a good job.

    Almost looks like it's made of Play-Doh in this pic! Assume it's not that far off a final flatting before paint?

    This is the final colour for the time being... No fancy paint yet.

    Build it back up, it will need further modifications when it's "finished" so no point in painting just yet.

    Maybe up and running before the end of the year White car not up for sale

    awesome progress again mark, building it up in primer and running it it in to sort any issues is the way to go. fair play.

    Re: Mk1 Escort Van V Skyline V Supra

    The initial plan for fueling was going to be internal fuel pump in the tank and feed it to a swirl pot in the back of the van and then on to the engine.

    My friend told me to look at a motorsports tank with the swirl pot inside the tank... Which makes sense really, it saves space and it will be safer as there is no need to run fuel lines into the car. So here is what we came up with...









    So there are 2 pumps now inside the tank, 1 feeding the other which is enclosed in a smaller tank, which then sends fuel onto the engine. No unnecessary messy pipes running into the car.

    It'll be a beast, for sure, with the torque of the 2JZ-GTE.

    Did someone build a spaceframed Anglia with one a few years ago?
