I'm not sure I understand you right, Si, do you mean you want sell your Rado and get another or modify what you've got to make it better?

I particularly like this set-up for the front. Drops the bottom ball joint and will give a little adjustment of you castor....

Its now the G60T still till i get over my debt/lack of funds situation, partly the reason its getting stripped so it feels like its 100bhp more Very Happy then when im used to that, see what engines are available at that time to tune stupidly, long long way off now though im afraid.

Can anybody post some pictures of stripped out interiors from the full race/track prep to the road stripped out style and everything inbetween for lots of inspiration and motivation so i can see what works and what doesnt, can be any car so long as its cool and functional so it serves its purpose.

LMAO!

To be fair, you need to work out what you want from it before taking it apart too much, otherwise you'll be there for ever!

Well i know i want it totally bare with not that much going back in so its all coming to bits anyway. It can take forever for all i care, its just now a hobby for me to keep me busy during the days i have nothing to do and to learn a little more in the way of car spannering.

I only have that approach because of what i want to do and have no money to do it, so i would just be eating myself up about doing it.

Ok then it's been a while.

Pretty much sold all the mechanical stuff from the car and I have the shell with panels minus bonnet and 1 rear three quarter glass.

Can't decide of it's still a viable option or not to get it back on the road, the original plan was to have it all stripped to bare minimum for outstanding power to weight.

It's literally a blank canvas so what would you do of you had a blank canvas to start with. All I'm interested in is having a weekend blast toy, totally uneconomical totally uncomfy totally ghetto bodywork just totally insanely stupidly fast.

If it was me, then.....

One or two bucket seats, dash, but no other interior.
Lightweight alloys with some good sticky tyres
Proper coilovers, ARBs and new standard bushes.
BIG brakes with brake bias and possibly 280 rear upgrade
1.8T with a large turbot

Job done Very Happy
