a quick update as i've been very busy with work and lazy with this heat we're having   Shocked

I've cut loads of the back out to get the exhaust in so i've put a subframe in to the back

this will be clad in steel all nice and tight

I've also got the rear rubber holders on for the Mondeo rubbers, and fitted said rubber

i need to get the top bit done near the hinges now and that will be that  Grin

can anyone tell me what side light and indicator to use for the headlights, and where to get them from, please. I'm planning on making my front end in one so would like to get these done and in.
Does anyone have any of the lights for sale?

i've been busy!
the 2.0 engine is out

The exhaust is fitted

i've moved the car over to give me some room and i've tidied up a little.

forgive my welding skills, or lack of, but part of this project is to learn how to weld well amongst learning other stuff

i'm really enjoying it so far  Grin

Firstly let me start by saying a massive thank you to Micky London for the build DVD and advice. Also his cracking build diary....mine will not be as good as his.

I purchased the car for 1000 of the queens finest pounds from someone who had left it to rot under a tree.

i started by cleaning it out and seeing what i have and haven't got.
there are a few bits missing:
Boot lid perspex
Passenger side fibreglass A pillar bit
Fibreglass bit to cover the boot latch/box section

The story behind it is the guy i got it from purchased the body kit in 2009 and stored it....badly by the shape of some of the panels.
He got a 406 in 2013 and got Extreme themselves to do the cutting and most of the welding. the car then was stored in a garage til 2016 and then parked under a tree until 3 weeks ago when i purchased it. No work was ever done to the car  Shocked Shocked

The interior of the car is beyond saving and it has has the 2.0 petrol engine fitted, so I've purchased a mint 406 with a low milage 3.0 engine to use as a donor, I need a windscreen and trims too so it made sense to get the donor

I've purchased a set of 19" wheels and an original Ferrari 360 exhaust to sling on it.

most of the welding and bashing that needed doing has been done by me and I've dry fitted all of the panels now

If anyone has any parts that they want to sell please let me know, especially if it's lights!

i'll try and take photo's and updatye now and again

I nearly bought this. I actually won it on eBay for £3600, Nick (The builder) was a really nice guy about it all.
I put on a forum, Mad about kitcars, that I'd bought it and received 5 private messages warning me off it and some pictures of the welding to the space frame. I rang the DVSA who were very helpful. Part of the reply i got via email was:
"With the pictures submitted, which are part of the provenance of the vehicle, it is doubtful that it would pass an IVA test."
Some of the later pictures that Nick sent me also proved the body panels to be bloody awful as they were layed in fibreglass and not moulded.

Hi all,
i've joined the forum as i've just bought an Extreme 360 unfinished project.
the 406 has had most of the welding done.
Pictures will be added to a seperate thread.
i've searched and can't find any links etc to a build DVD, so am asking to see if anyone has one to sell.
thanks in advance
