Started to build up the floor again in the middle portion of the car to regain some strength and also in order to suspend the gearbox under its own weight.

Bolted up some porsche 924 discs up the front so i could get some 4x108 wheels on for now and was able to drop the car on the ground again for the first time in a while. Also chucked the front end on!

Rolling with a full RWD drivetrain (minus the propshaft!)

The rear sits pretty nice and has plenty of adjustment in the suspension arms but the front requires some fairly heavy camber adjustments, will poke a bit more with some proper brakes etc fitted but i'm gonna need to look into extending the wishbones and/or modifying the strut top with some adjustable top mounts i think.
