I have also convinced my mate to make a few 'against his religion' cuts.
He was always hoping that I would stay within his guidelines for body mods so it could be put back to Group 4 spec with a Pinto/BDA at some point.
Firewall will be getting it, trans tunnel to be enlarged all the way through (I'm hoping to stuff exhaust up there too) and a couple of other things that you will need pics of.

Where possible keep the original; metal work and you can always put it back.

But Freddie is right, it's your car and up to you how you use it.

Slow progress as I and helper have been v busy with normal work.
Wheels came down to a very limited choice in the size/offset required so ....

Lovely wheels as long as they are not shinier than in the photo.

Gun metal centre and polished lip, but couldn't find a pic. May get them powder coated black later (spokes)
