That's a beauty mate, well done. Always liked the P100 for some reason, not many decent ones left. Even fewer of the mk5 Cortina shape left!

Cheers for the comments lads, now she's been on the road for 6mths i have ironed out all the teething problems and she is great fun to drive ie in damp conditions you can achive full lock drifts on various round abouts in 3rd gear or 4th if yer brave enough but obviously i havent done that !!!!! LOL
Take a look at the new project pictures this time its a Chevette that ive building for quite a while your views on that one would be welcomed.

Haha, that 'tow car' would be a heck of a laugh at a track day meeting - esp' if the brakes are up to it! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
The Chevette is looking VERY nice and, being such a bright red 8) , you know it's going to be fast - just need to save up for some throttle bodies now :wink:
Who did your exhaust - looks like a bit of work and what are the clearances like to the body/chassis?

The brakes on the pick up are sound as they are 280mm Cosworth discs and calipers up front with X-drilled & Grooved Max Torque discs with Mintex 1144 pads, and at the rear they are Mk3 Escort front solid discs mated to Sierra Cosworth rear calipers, all the lines are fully goodridged and the load sensing valve at the rear has been removed to enable full braking pressure to the rear at all times, so Yep She Stops !!!!!

The Chevette is Lamborghini Diablo Red and with the class i intend on running her i have to utilise the std inlet manifold and plenum chamber so Throotle Bodies or webers is out the question un-fortunatly. The manifold is a std ashley 4 - 2 - 1 XE RWD conversion item, you have to modify the rear chassis bracket for the bottom wishbone to get clearence then strengthen it back up by fabricating a lower strut brace to the other side mounting point but that then also acts as a rear sump guard mounting bar as well. The exhaust system is a 2 1/4" twin box Escort system that i modified to fit my self.
