Default Update on the T5 conversion

Well progress has been slow, had to do stop work to do some of the house and garage, but starting to get back into it, finally had permission from the person who owns the chassis that I can cut bits off it too which means I can now get the engine where I want it.

Also borrowed a de dion and set of radius arms to set it all up and see what driveshaft lines are like.

Lower engine mount, will be able to use this one after welding quite a bit onto the chassis, the lower tube isn't strong enough on its own for the the weight of the engine, however I can put some more tubes in so that it will be.

I'm leaving enough space here to get the cam cover back on, and a belt in there, no more.

Life would have been so much easier if this front mount had been about 6 inches to the right

Just enough clearance between gearbox case and de dion

Thats all for now, not going to do much more until I find a focus ST gearbox, decided to use one of them instead of the volvo and they're ever so slightly different unfortunately.
