Update on the above plan....

Seat belts removed......


Hood frame and rear brace by marlinpeter, on Flickr

The upright in this shot is welded to the chassis. The diagonal brace takes the seat belt upper mounting and the hood frame. All these parts have some surface rust that will need to be removed and the parts repainted.

That rear diagonal brace is mounted beneath the rear wing so I had to remove the rear wheels which gave me the chance to have a look around underneath


Rear brakes and suspension by marlinpeter, on Flickr

The brake calipers were clearly refurbished back in 1995 but now need attention.

While I had the car jacked up I took off the rear bumper and fog/reverse lights. The lights were just for show as there was no wires?

I then moved on to removing the loom.....


Wiring gone! by marlinpeter, on Flickr

I've removed all the wiring up to the engine bay.

Taking a kitcar apart is a lot quicker than building one!!
