Sparx01

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Cheers Mick,
the reality is, if it wasn't for JD I definitely would have sold it on unfinished. There were far too many things to put right and with work being manic for the last few years I would never have got anywhere near finishing.

Cheers JD,
for the update. Excellent work as usual.
Tone

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi tone , Guys, time for an update,  firstly after finding a slack bolt on one of the new shockers the previous owner had fitted I thought I'd better go over everything suspention wise that had been fitted ,just as well as nearly every thing was slack as well as the wrong nut fitted to the other shocker ,once that was done I .finished up sealing and painting the the new rear bulkhead ,then before I fitted the exhaust silencer I gave it a good polish it came up like brand new ,the new bends hav arrived so the next job is to pipe the exhaust all up ,also finished up the new pipe work to the tank from the filler neck , here's a few pics cheers JD

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Well I have just got in from work after a 13hr hard slog and thought I will have a quick browse on Tinternet.

Wow, if there is ever a good little pick me up, then a nice progress report does the trick.

JD, it looks you must have had a good holiday and came back firing on all cylinders. The big question is, are those phat wheels going to fit and if they do, will I only be able to drive in straight lines?   Lol

Nice work and cheers for the update.

Tone

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi tone ,guys a little update ,iv spent time sorting and pipping  the pug exhaust up to the Ferrari exhaust silencer it sounds good ( I sent tone a video as I can't download them on here as it says they are to big )  also fitted a couple of brackets to the new filler neck pipe to keep it secure , I fed the new pipe work through the car to the tank as this car will be getting a new rear bulk fitted behind the drivers seat as tone has bought genuine Ferrari engine bay panels , as for the wheels I'm waiting on spacers at the minute  but it looks like I can get them to fit but I will hav to tub the rear inner arch a couple of inches but will look the nuts when it's sitting on these bad boys ,
Back on bodywork till the spacers arrive I'm having to completely redo the doors as the previous person fitted the door skins without doing the door handle and hockey stick mod .  Cheers for now jd
