First thing to do IMO is to sort out the engine and gearbox. Those bits tend to have the longest lead times.

Yes but will you be casting and machining the components? Which was my point.

BTW. As far as brakes are concerned I'd go for AP calipers, don't go Willwood because they tend to expand under race conditions. (I speak from experience).

trouble is Iain, you've got to do everyone else first so you can affor dto play with your own . . . . spent a week on the Anglebox, now I'm knee deep in engines.

I have pieced together parts for the anglia engine and gearbox however, even found some ally castings floating round in the back of the lock up.

Zef,

That was another point I was going to make. You need to earn a living too.

My winter project? I'm looking at buying a boat.

Iain, going back to the important matter of your dash search have you tried Escort-Tec down Gatwick way?

Also, Prepfab had my crash pad molded by a tame glassfibre bod, but remember at time they suggested could do a complete dash that would replace pod as well. Worth a thought.

6" of snow could possibly make my workshop warmer- good insulation! Still working on kitchen table at moment but am going to have to get back out there soon...

Meanwhile, a pic of the '6hr' 924. Engine rebuilt and ready to go in, gearbox rebuilt and in, fuel supply redone, all hubs and brakes rebuilt or renewed. When wiring finished will all start to come together!
