Hey looking good, not to burst your bubble, but N/A you will struggle to get to 13's with the V6 I had one in my Anglia, stripped out, full slicks and running a 310 deg cam, could only manage 12.7 sec. well you might get a 13.99999, but realisticly you should do low 14's. My 1600 Sport with a V6 could only manage 14.6, on street tyres.

But use this as challange and proof me wrong :thumb: Goodluck with the build, have you decided on a colour yet, I see the car is getting sanded down as well.

The body will keep the side skirts and rear diffuser and i have a front spoiler from the MK5 I will fit in front.
The boot spoiler has been removed.

Will be trying to get it to look like this, but with straight rims!

Started with the body over December, Got its first coat of primer and now need to sort out all the small dents and dings to get it looking perfect and then ad some colour.

Had the family and friends helping me with the sanding bofore primer coat.


My 5yr Old working hard!


Roof and back cleared of all cracked paint


Etch Coat on metal before primer


First Primer Coat before the body filler





Will keep the pics updated once we make progress.

Power tools are not meant for women. If she can sand it with a steam iron then she's welcome. That what I think... :lol:

Looking good, hope to see it run one of these days!
