MR H (road track car project)

Post  lemski on Sun Apr 03, 2011 2:10 pm

well for a while now mr neg has been slowly getting sorted. well the bts i need for my new shell. now i have the shell sourced but are waiting for the person to sell some more parts so i can take it away.
this left me with sorting out parts that were needed. so a break down of the parts i need:

1x mk2 3door shell - sourced/ waiting to be picked up
2 x doors - sourced
2 x side windows - sourced
1 x boot - waiting to be welded
1 x boot glass - sourced
2 x front wings - sourced
2 x sil repairs - needed
2 x inner front arch repairs - needed
2 x rear arch repairs - needed
1 x sun roof metal panel - sourced
2 x bucket seats - sourced
2 x 3point harnesses - needed
1 x rollcage - awaiting price
1 x set of abf breaks - needed
1 x set of braided hoses - sourced
4 x vr6 wheels - needed/ subject to change
various exterier trim and interier trim - sourced
1 x paints n such - needed

well now thats out the way, i can get on with what has happened so far with the boot. (hopefully to be finished on tuesday)


starting to cut the number plate recess out. not window is already missing.

recess out. just need to take some metal to weld it up with. then skim some filler over it and jobs a peach.



thankyou for reading my list, hope people like the boot as thats it for now

well 1stly some long ovr due pictures.

the boot, needs alittle bit more work before i can start the skim of fillering and then spraying.


then as i decided it was soney i thought i'd sort the belly pan out.
flattened and got rid of the rust 1st, then primered several times.


then sprayed it the famous tornado red.




now i have also aquired something very special, but as of yet its just an idea and wont happen til my funds allow.

next to pick up is my bumpers and braided hoses, still waiting to hear back on the abf breaks.


so far i have done quite well on spending nothing, just working for parts etc.
