Latest update of interior plastics are all primed and painted, ready for installation now

Decided to go for the same metallic dark grey as the mirrors, wheels, splitter and diffuser, to keep everything keyed together.

Lack of pictures due to being busy, but work has progressed

Engine in
Exhaust has been built, but had to fit the cat in
Started on the interior, but lots to do

Long way to go, but moving forward well 👍🏻

Well, after running out of Mig wire for the welder this morning 😱 and having to shoot out for a new reel.
Barry managed to get the full exhaust welded up.
All new welds have been made smooth with the die grinder, and the full exhaust has now been fully painted again with HVT exhaust paint 👍🏻👍🏻
Just waiting for it to dry and it can be installed back in the car and heat shields made for the cat and the back box.

So, after a lot of lifting up and down and loosely bolting in to check it fits, then changing it again and again, we have eventually, successfully fitted the exhaust to the car.

Can’t believe we had to remove the rear engine mounting that connects the gear box to the fire wall, as this was blocking access to bolt the exhaust together.. :o

So modified the engine mounting too so access can be gained now without removing it, in the future  ;D

So exhaust fitted all the way to the tips

Just the heat shields to make and fit now, and that’s the exhaust finished.  :D
