Default mk1 historic rally car build

After say I was never building another car , here I go again ! Plan is full historic rally spec with BDG/ZF/Atlas etc. Heres where we are so far. Shell stripped and unrequired parts sold off. Floors and underside glass blasted and all panels soda blasted to reveal a remarkable shell. Then shell taken to Scott McMinn Motorsport for shell build and progressing well.
