Default Marlin 5EXi GTR (LHD) being built in Portugal.

Hi all,

Just to introduce myself. Iím Paulo from Portugal and together with a friend I own a Marlin 5Exi (GTR version and LHD). I received the car on the 21st december 2012, so Santa arrived early last year .
Iím dealing with the bits and everything else and I think I already reached 35% of build. The donor is a Honda Civic 1.6 VTi (EK4). It is a 4 door salon model from 1996. The engine is a B16A2 with some internal modifications that have more less 180 bhp. This car was my daily car from 1998 and until 2005. It have loads of track time since I participated with him in track days since 2001. It is now time to keep the bullet proof internals and to get rid of the weight by installing the mechanical parts in to a serious light chassis. The car will be used for track days and other race events.
For the gear box linkage we decide to install the Mike Satur MGF gear linkage system and we will customize it to fit the Honda Y2 gear box.
No build web site yet (the available time is being spent on the car), but when I setup a web site I will advise the group.

Kind regards.
