A couple of updates..

I have finished off welding the main part of the chassis.
New chrome moly cross members to add a bit more strength..

Once all the Fab work is done the chassis will be blasted and powder coated..

Had lined up the hilux differential, it seems that the shop that modified the housing did not take into account the offset of the centre (too many assumptions). Click the image to open in full size.

Due to the tunnel being so small I need to modify the housing again to move it over 40mm to get it centre.. Click the image to open in full size.

I would love to come see this one day, I am in VIC also with a garage full of old school Honda metal. PM me if I can come check it out.

I think with an original motor they are superb, but if your car is not great to start ie, matching numbers or complete then an engine conversion is fine - as long as it's still honda powered. In this case an F20C, well what can I say? The best modern Honda engine for one of the most desirable Honda classics!


James

P.S my garage............and still NO S800 coupe car yet!!!!!!

Still looking!

I have also raised the engine and gearbox to get greater clearance off the road

Will probably go with a bonnet bulge similar to this below..

Any suggestions on scoop or bonnet bulge?
