thanks man, the sun strip covers up the sumping roof liner. And im a btcc kinda guy, living the dream in a sun strip way.
If you have some photo's thatmwould great, cheers
and discs wise I have no idea, the pug1off guys had to find them to fit as there is only a mm of clearance between the wheels.
pads are oe.  And squeak for about the first 100metres.
after that no noise and great power/modulation

So after a winter sorned away in the garage, the old girl is back on the road.
took it out for a blast today, forgot just how much fun it is.
seems the discs may have a bit of a wobble now. Slightly seized before, fingers crossed they true out with a little use.
fitted a mocal 16 row oil cooler after a little fabrication of the bumper to squeeze it in.
Oil changed and ready to go.
now to figure out what shows to do.
anyone thinking of retrocar live this year. Looks like it could be good.
cheers

ill try and keeps photo's coming.

Back end seems a tad higher, not a bad thing. Now im figuring out where to stop with the stripping. Track wise i am booked in at retro car in august at rockingham. And hills at prescott of course, 4 runs booked so far.

Today was hot right, so hot I took the bonnet off the car.
that and it went into the body shop. Come on shiny bonnet.

Simple bit of colour coding as I have a spare 5 minutes.
