So after an "vacation" (worked 40-45 hours a week) and after some time spend in France I got going on the car again monday and yesterday.

It's now on his own (rear)tires.

And so is how the pedals, handbrake, etc. looks like.

Yeps. If you give me a couple of 100 dollars or euros I could make it :wink: . I don't have the money for it (student).
But luckily it's easy to change.

Very Professional work

Very professional work. How about some detailed shots on your 5 link Kafer bars. I am interested in what the brackets look like that attach the links to the shock tower, the frame horns, and the large part of the tunnel.

I will say it again, your work is very professional and you set a high hurdle for most of us.

Last week sandblasted some pieces of the spare-tire-thing.

The night before yesterday found some time. And after 1,5 hour of cutting, grinding and welding it looks like this.

So there some update again.

The sparetire-platework and the strenghtening bar is in. Also checkes several previous weldings (some cut out and welded in again). I also started with welding close almost every hole in the dashboard-platework.
The backplate (where the exhaust goes through)didn't fit quite good, so had to hammer verry much, but now it finally fits good.

I have some pics of it and will post it soon.
