Been shopping! New clutch disc and pressure plate and flywheel. Complete set of wear out items for the engine/gearbox such as seals,gaskets,oil pump etc from E-Mini parts. Gripper LSD from England plus 5:1 final drive and R56 trailing arms from CA.
Finally the roll cage tube has arrived. Meanwhile I've been removing some more weight from the interior.
There has been a few disasters as the tube bender does bend the roll cage tube, plus they set the right wheel arch on fire due to they did not know there was a plastic liner, so that was toast as was the wheel arch. Meanwhile I stripped down the Midlands gearbox to find a mint example with no wear! Amazing! I was chatting with Way at Way Motors who seems very willing to help my project. Most likely I'll go with the NS1 cam and their ECU tune.
I found a tube bender who managed to bend the tubing to my cardboard MC
interior template. The tubing was dropped off at the shop with the hope they will be able to make me a nice FIA spec cage while I'm back in the US. Now I have the R56 trailing arms, clutch ready to take on my next visit. My returning visits now contain Suzuki Swift parts! I'm waiting for the Grpper LSD/5:1 final drive then when I return I can start to put all the stuff back in the car. I'm about 6 weeks behind but I hope I can catch up over the next few months. I'll post some photos of the cage when I return on Dec 9th.
Meanwhile a rich kid down in Costa Rica bought a new Countryman ($55,000) with the view to rally it. I figure the car will cost around $95,000 to finish. mmmmmmm rich ******* as I'm selling everything just build my car.
