Yeah it was flat fronted to preserve the nosecone and wings. Flat fronted in around 2009 I think it was.
Currently going back to standard with nose cone, standard fishnet recaros etc but I am fitting a YB cosworth in its place! Engine and gearbox have been first fitted, new gearbox tunnel fabricated. I have a whole load of nice shiny new parts for it waiting aswell.
Idea is to get the engine running then get it all back out again to do a bit fabrication on the shell, off to paint then final fit the engine with all the new bits on.
I think fitting the mud flaps will be quite straightforward its basic stuff that should be within the capabilities of most petrol heads. Biggest job will be jacking the car up and removing the wheels. I think you can do it without but a proper clean and decontamination of arches and wheels whilst you have them removed.
Like a lot of petrolheads I have ocd when it comes to my pride and joy. One thing I have noticed that lets the car down a bit is how much the back box has tarnished even though it hasn’t done many miles. Maybe to do with heat or just general corrosion. Not sure if it would polish up or if anyone has tried?
