The same as I learned on pre­vi­ous projects, do plenty of re­search go and have a look around and at other cars and make up my own mind of the di­rec­tion that is best. Main les­son for ev­ery per­son do­ing a project is buy cheap buy twice, good parts aren’t cheap

WHAT’S NEXT Next mod­i­fi­ca­tions have al­ready started, some sub­tle styling mods are partly done. I want to get the en­gine bay look­ing ti­dier and some bits painted, I bought some more bil­let en­gine aes­thet­ics at Ford Fair. The main plans over win­ter are to get a sump baf­fle fit­ted, front and rear strut braces, firmer en­gine poly­bushes and an­other set of al­loys that will be wrapped in semi-slicks. Just to get the car ready for some track­days and a trip to the Nur­bur­gring next year

THANKS Got to say thank you to Nick and all the team over at AET Mo­tor­sport, they’ve taken the car from near stock to mak­ing over 340bhp at the fly­wheel. Also, thanks to my other half Jess and all my fam­ily for the va­ri­ety of car parts lit­tered all over my house for the last cou­ple of years!
