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!
