Alexis - that's the cleanest and tidiest garage I have seen for a long time!

Some interesting upgrades in the past, I don't think the panelling over the petrol tank is a factory item but it should stiffen up the rear window nicely.

For the roll cage are you planning to fit large load spreading plates at the end of the tubes, in particular the ones at the heelboard could be tricky as they are in an enclosed box section?

Best regards, Nigel

You're right Nigel - definitely a case of garage envy!

Also at the pace you seem to be progressing at Alexis.

A bit OT but do you know the make of your engine stand?  I'm after one that will hold the A-Series.

Looking at your location I'm tempted to aim for the 2014 Le Mans Classic to get my car on the road by - it's always good to dream  .  Good luck with your build.

as you can see it's not easy to keep the garage tidy.


For the roll cage it's planning to fit large spreading plates at the end of the tubes , may be like this for the hellboard



to Graham

this is an universal engine stand, like this :


for the moment, the gear box it's fixed on the stand by the final drive bolt †(4 bolts) , i have to create a specifique spacer to fix the engine block on it ( may be by the timing side)

Hi and welcome,

I thought my garage was big, but yours is massive.
Have you tried the seat in for position? Your rear roll hoop looks a long way forward. I hope you have short legs or your head will be hitting the roll hoop.

Good luck with the build
