Wouldn't mind buying it once you've finished it



Lol i have no choice - car was a 4k car when i bought it, have well over 2k in parts spent already lol cant just give up and lose my ass, this is why im doing one job at a time....

Once these body work bits are done, then its the 4 link axle, watts linkage (6link), and rear bags

Then the engine will come out and big brake, bags, engine mounted and rhd conversion

Then its peddle box as i dont want a servo + hydraulic clutch on r28

Then cage, seats and new dash

Then turbo and exhaust - probs side exit or will need a tunnel

Then shotblast and paint

Then it needs engine rebuild and forge

Then slow slow slow refurb, powder coat and rebuild

It will take me another year atleast, more likely two





what's the reason for putting the watts linkage on. also if you get bored of the wheels drop me a message I'd be interested in them

The axle already has one and since im not smart enough to work out a triangulated 4 link, i will use parallel

Wats will stop side to side movement

i know that watts linkage controls lateral movement but i thought the kadetts came with a panhard rod not watts linkage. could be wrong though

when you say parallel I'm guessing you mean that you're going to use ladder bars. that's how i mounted mine

The one pictured will also move back and forward is it rises and falls where as a proper 4 link will stay all in one place and just move up and down

Pain in the arse to fit and paint. Most of it it has carpeted apart from the boxes now.

Going to take sometime to get the rear axle set up.
