Nice paint, you work fast !

What made you think to try a BT50 extension housing ? How do you plan to address the tailshaft spline misalignment ?

Thanks

Colour is original to the car and it looks great, can't wait to add the chrome and stainless trims.


Saw a BT50 box and thought it looked similar to series 4 type. Had to change the selectors as well. Stock Rx3 shifter fits and is the same length as early box.

Housing isn’t bolted down

You have a good eye to pick that gearbox conversion.

Is that Iris Blue or Concord Silver ?

Galac Silver Code-B5

7/73 so if I can get it rego'd by the end of July or earlier then I hope that would count for a 40 years return.

Oh my..... this is looking to be so good! Seeing these pics lights a fire within, I cant wait to hang my panels and attach chrome bits. I saw your update and it motivated me to head into my garage and get cracking.. Keep the updates coming! :mrgreen:

On a side note: Do you have a thread on the coupe? or a couple pics, without giving away your race spec secrets? 8)

Do you do your own porting ?

What purpose does machining the entire rotor land serve ?

Didn't do these ports. I would normaly do my own, it's a dirty job and not for me anymore.

Clearance is for turbo setup, its only 7 thou a side. Just stops rotor from touching the plates, you usually get hot spots on corner seals area.
