    A610 16" rims and custom brakes . i1218.photobucket.com_albums_dd402_cleerat_DSCF2499_zps4c48981e.jpg
    Front end coming together and fuel system going in .I need to see if I can alter the tank outlet to a larger -8an although it might be OK as is .... have a Walbro 255 for up front that will feed to a larger than shown 2l swirlpot at rear with -8 and -6 fittings ,big Bosch pump and filter to lump .All lines will run through cabin and be teflon inner ,non vapour type stainless braided to bulkhead fittings . Got to knock up a firewall that will fit to turret fronts and enclose tank . i1218.photobucket.com_albums_dd402_cleerat_DSCF2653_zps8837db1a.jpg i1218.photobucket.com_albums_dd402_cleerat_DSCF2652_zps98147b93.jpg i1218.photobucket.com_albums_dd402_cleerat_DSCF2655_zpsae433d5f.jpg i1218.photobucket.com_albums_dd402_cleerat_DSCF2656_zps0584282a.jpg

    Some old slicks and wets from a mate with a race Spider .Same wheels as A610 so should work fine for test purposes .I have another pair of rear rims for the wets ,just need to find a front set ..

    Cheers lads

    They also load up all the other bits so strengthening suspension turrets a must .Europa Cup cars had extra plates in vital places and I'm getting the geo settings from a mate in France hopefully ....
    They are quite flimsy and do flex a bit under load so belt and braces and crossed fingers .....

    Top wishbones strengthened and modified to dial in some camber ...once we know where it is we'll weld retaining washers ..

    Nice work lee, Jill is making good progress at last! Some good fabrication work and the mix of A610 bits is going to make it look one mean GTA racer.

    I do miss my old A610 but it good to see she is in good hands at RATS HQ :i-m_so_happy.gif:
