    The door has a little mark that will bog up fine, so that's been dropped to $180.

      From the SCAA guys it’s worth getting the Mazdasport front subframe reinforcement gussets and weld them in. Apparently it removes one of the biggest weak points. I have a couple of photos of the subframe reinforcement in my thread.

        $550 in so far. That rear guard is going to need quite a pull though.

          Good progress. What’s the plan on the pulling? Spot weld on slide hammer thingo?

              That's actually not such a shit idea. Though the guard still really needs to be pulled anyways. And I don't think I could live with knowing what it looks like underneath.

              Blaise - I imagine so, that will be up to the panel guy. I have one lined up, hoping to drop it off Saturday week.

                I dropped the car off on Saturday, pretty good progress has been made, the rear guard has been pulled out quite successfully. Click image for larger version

                    Yeah, really have to find a hard top for it now.

                      Gees that’s a good effort on the rear quarter. That would have been the toughest part to solve ?

                        Yep, there was a good 25mm of gap between door and guard.

                          Good to see it's gonna come up great. Was such a tidy car. ( for a shitta racer, that you don't need to care about ).
