how much time have you got!!! :lol:

most of my older projects would have filled this up!

can i just state they were all safe!! i took my kids out in my cars so they had to be! ish.
a few to start with....

rear bumper off a granada grafted onto the front of a t25 using gaffa tape and self tapers.

rear spoiler found at the side of the road cut and shut to fit the roof of t25 with threaded bar. it moved like the porsche ones do! this was not deliberate

the obligatory cut springs on t25

roller painted t25

wiring in buggy done in black wire through out. i got given a cheap roll.

rear seats of buggy were the cushions of office chairs self tapped in.

rear 25% of one buggy grafted onto the front of another shell(same model)

rattle can painted buggy(everyone thought it was satin!! but it was a cold day)

they were a few years ago!

i also released a clutch cable from the pedal end once to remove a bay beam! lol that fu**ed the clutch up!

changed a single barrel and piston while the engine was still in the car!

i'll keep adding when i remember

but i'm a good bodger!! they look ok in a picture!
i only have one of the t25, i dont know if maddison has any of the black buggy?
i have some somewhere on a disc....i'll never find it so i'mnot going to look :P

the bodged t25, i'm sure it had loads more stuff done to it!
the alloys were from a burnt out grananda scorpio(different to the bumper i might ad!) they were bent and buckled and it used to wear the inside of the front tyres off something terrible! and it hit the chassis at full lock and the wheel arches over big bumps!
the seats were out of an old work mates scrap nissan!
it was basically a typical old diesel van, butcherd by me! and all done on the cheap(read nasty!) :lol:
but it looked ok and went ok

*edit* that looks like the phase II front spoiler! it looks like the front bumper off the granada! it doesn't fit as good as the back one, but the back one eventually went the distance because it kept getting ripped off. it was only about an inch off the floor :lol:
