Re: My Project Parts For Sale

To be honest I had a lot of parts but it was space to do the work that did it. It started to make me unhappy. The parts are expensive though.
The shell has now been sold and will become a 3.0 s. It's good to know that it's helping a 3.0s get back into action.

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

I am now finally abandoning my project and selling everything. I just don't have the time or the space and quite frankly because of all the stress it is causing me I have finally lost interest. I am selling up all my parts if anyone is interested. I will be listing them on here and eventually ebay i...

Re: Capri V10

Hi there. Been following your build for a while now and I'm pleased it's still going. I was wondering if you use a vacuum to make your panels and then bake? I read a book on composites and decided I would never have the space or equipment to do a proper job. I have always fantasized about making my ...

Rust location. Panel needed but no idea of the name

Hi guys. I have a rust hole from the engine bay to the wheel well. I think the bumper mounts through this panel. I need to get a couple of repair panels but I don't know what they're called so it's hard to search for. I went on steel panels website but they don't have pictures of all their panels. A...

Re: Escort Spring Shackles

Thanks for your reply. The ones I saw were from motorsport tools and they are £23 but the capri ones from cci are £70 or something like that. Very pricy. Can martin get new ones cheaper?

Re: Important ! Ref fuel tanks

Are these tanks always going to be available now or was it a limited run? I do want/need one but I need lots of other bits as well so I need to know where it should be on my priority list.

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

Ok so this is my first proper update in a while. I am no longer doing RX8 independent rear suspension, nor am I doing a Jag V8 or V6, and not even a Volvo 5 pot. I’m going back to basics. I’m using excruciatingly expensive standard parts. Why? Well I have money for my project, but not much space or ...

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

I think you have made the right decision. The closer to original that you can keep it the more it will be worth. Absolutely. However it is a lot more expensive. I could probably have bought a minter by the time I'm done. I don't like saving money though and i already have this one. It will be nice ...
