It was built by Walden engineering! /the front suspension is basically Vectra touring car and he runs 5 stud wheels because of this. I know he's had quite alot of teething problems with it but hes getting to the bottom of them.
That name still gives me nightmares :(

Is great to see this car getting further and further along :)

In an attempt to save weight we scrapped the original heater/air distribtion housing as it's very heavy - to be replace by this little heater/blower






It's tiny and will supply warm air to the Heated screen we have on order - best to be safe than sorry - It no good having all this fancy equipement if you cant see where your going !!!


Hydraulic handbrake plumbed in - Just need to extend the lever to be in easy reach






Drivers carbon fibre foot tray in positition - just need a liittle tweeking to fit snug

Awesome Dave !

Is the heater box a custom thing ? can think of a few cars that I know of that need something like that.

I've got the same one fitted in my rally car, does a great job, alot more powerful than it's size makes you think. Would recommend the company to anyone the guy who runs it is a very good chap. I think he's called Adam.

Not much of an update - just a few more pictures to keep you all happy

Progress has almost come to a halt - lack of an engine is holding us up :(

Our other project (Chevette) however is taking shape :) - will update that thread after weekend after we have fitted the engine :)


The Corsa is a little further on than these pictures show - so I will take some upto date pictures and post soon



Front Proflex canisters secured in place






Along with the rears






Handbrake lever extended by Ally Tig Welding in an extension piece to bring lever into easy reach - all repainted now :)













Tinted polycarb fitted


Corsa's under a sheet at the moment while we press on with the Chevette
