It has already been lowered 2" it has no engine, gearbox, or interia so it's got nothing to way it down at the moment.

Heyyyy!!! Time for an update.I have installed the dash but first i had to replace the heater core. As you can see the old one was a bit rusty
Image

then i installed the dash (Still have things to do before it is finished)
Image

I ordered some ebay special seat skins and slipped them over some seats i got from Roberto. I am 95% happy with the fit. But then i can remeber roberto saying he had some extra foam added to the seat base so that might have made a difference to the fit
Image

Now i am in the middle of prepping the engine to be fitted to the car. I currently have it stripped to bare block and head. I am replacing the timing belt and water pump while i am at it. I cant wait to get the engine sitting in the bay so It stops looking like a 4WD.

I thought i would dedicate this weekend to my 240 so i managed to get a fair bit done. I finaly got the engine in so it is now very close But first i have a major hurdle in the wireing of the rb, This has been my bigest fear of the whole build so i will be asking a few questions if i get stuck.
Any way here are some pics

I had rely hoped that it would have sit lower with the engine in, I hope the king spring lows will settle down a bit after a while

step by step, inch by inch, closer and closer to firing this beast up. today I mounted up the fuel pumps and surge tank. tomorrow i will plumb them up ready to run ;D
I think the bosch o44 will be adequate but i think the carter might have to go, from what i have herd they are rather noisy but i will give it a chance
