    Ok, I know this is a monumental task but I feel I am up to it.
    After being an N/A owner for the last 12 years I thought it was finally time I built a TT.

    ...from scratch! lol!

    1st up fitted some Shnazzy Red underdrive pulleys...

    All finished minus the plenum and ready to go in...

    [​IMG]

    Mounted and gee what a nice clean chassis this is... notice I've completely hidden all plumbing and electricals lol!

    [​IMG]

    The body is all painted but the acrylic has reacted with the plastic... er I mean alloy, so will need to rub it back before a clear coat goes on...

    Added some nice Coilovers...

    ...watch this space! :rofl:

    Z1 Motorsports..

    Yeah I got it from Z1 Motorsports for $158.00 US. lol!
    If the car doesn't work out I could always use the engine in a boat since it already has a prop big enough to push the Titanic lol!
