Hi all, I thought now would be a good time to start a build thread, being as the remains of my old 379bhp Mk1 Focus RS went to its new owner to rebuild today: Then was replaced by this: A 1993 1.6 Eunos with mandatory broken drivers window mechanism, great oil pressure and no need to use one of those nasty catalytic converters. She runs and drives great and is a tidy car tbh, seems a shame to rip it apart The date for my kit was originally 14th of March but due to the fibreglass supplier switch it's been put back by a week. That's fine by me as before I collect the kit I need to: Strip the donor Clean the garage Paint the garage floor Erect garage shelving Build a trolley to build the car on Suffice to say I've got plenty to do. I've ordered my kit in hooligan orange, with detachable rear arches and side panels fitted and I'm aiming for a 550kg road-going build. Next up is to compression test the engine....
Well after ordering the starter kit back in January the day finally came to collect (most) of it. After a very wet drive to the factory the chassis was waiting. Unfortunately due to a problem with the track at the powdercoaters the suspension (and anything else that should be powdercoated) didn't make it in time but Ian will get that shipped out to me as soon as he gets it. Got it all home but as there isn't a garage at dad's house it had to go in the house. It will be built up here until its ready for the engine. At that point will roll it to a proper garage (I know I know, why not build it in the garage from the start!) Paid a bit extra now to get the full roll cage lugs welded to the chassis as no doubt down the road I will be wanting it installed. No time for getting any work done this weekend so next weekend I will actually be starting the build!
