whats the score here then guys?

my car still isnt finished as im racing ahead with uni work - and im cashless - so if i can get all my work done by this weekend i can spend the weekend down the lock up and when i get paid on monday i can order all the bits to finish

ive got a funny feeling something terrible is going to happen and i wont be able to finish it in time so if thats the case im out but we might as well formulate a plan anyways Very Happy

weena youve got to get the oval ready for next weekend, could call round one night if it helps.
currently qualified in tea making and passing spanners if that is any good mate.

I think sunday might be a session day down the lock up dude - and i'm sure weena would LOVE some help!

We started bleeding the brakes today - we should finish them tomorow, but there's rear wing, valance and bonnet to finish paint and fit, then interior, runing boards, trim, some glass... exhaust, wiring!! we'll just kick my beetle out into the lane and crack on with the oval!

now that sounds like a plan - its not really as much as it sounds

rear wing will be on tomorrow as will the rear valance - bonnet will be in primer awaiting paint on saturday - need to fit the glass finish the wiring off on a couple of bits to faff around with on the inside

ill try and get the engine wired up tomorrow and hopefully by sunday night ill be pretty much done

just need to fit the exhaust, body trim and a few other bits next week then(have to order them next day on monday morning) arghhhhh affraid

umm sketchy - got a load of parts coming by courier tomorrow to finish it - but its finding the time to squeeze it in around all my final pieces of coursework Sad

nightmare at the moment

just need to bleed the brakes and test the wiring (and finish it) and then just a few bits of body work etc

then sort the ride height out - prob get it tracked as best i can do first im determined to get there now tho

right im off down the garage for a long assed - get my car ready for big bang session

if i do get this thing running would it be possible for someone to take up 2 tents with them?

matty might be riding in the back seat as he doesnt have a ride up to big bang - and im not sure my car can take all the weight Wink

keep your fingers and toes crossed

on a nicer note - the stinger arrived Very Happy
