Good luck, Paul.
Guys thanks for the encouragement. It means a lot to me
I do like problem solving, but find I end up thinking tooo much and not doing anything...
The to do list goes like this: (from the front)
Get an MOT and V5 updated
Front indicators location and size (currently hanging in the bonnet mouth)
secure expansion bottle in engine bay
make and fit a heater inlet cover between bonnet and windcreen
connect speedo cable
mount rear view mirror
Glass hole in floor and tunnel
fasten both seats to floor
fit both doors
strap to secure battery
means to locate and fasten boot lid.
(all this assumes no windscreen for MOT so no wipers or washers tested.)
the good new is that the chasis, engine, suspension, brakes, tyres are all fine as they passed the MOT before I started cutting it up.
Make the mods I really want
air inlet mesh
Change bonnet mounting so it can be lifted off
cut out an Air Inlet in the bonnet ferrari 550 style
Refit the inner wheel arch liners to protect the engine from road dirt.
Seal front bulkhead to channel water away
Fit washer jets and plumbing
Fit wiper arms and blades
Fit the windcreen to the correct height so eyesight not level with top of frame.
upholster dash, door cards, footwell, behind seats and seats in grey
fit side windows to doors
modify body behind seats so drivers seat can be moved backwards.
Fit Audi TT roll hoops to body support behind seats
fibreglass metal frame to body behind top of seats
cut access panel in top of body above old rear position to give access to battery and storage space
Cut out a bigger boot opening to enable it to hold spare wheel
French in rear lights
Bigger exhaust pipes.
nice britsh racing green paint job
and to finish it all off an electric hard top roof for rainy days!
I have accommadation in italy booked for the august bank holiday so may target is to drive there.
However it may well be in the Scimitar GTE and not the G46!
