Looks great! Only thing is that the rear headrests do look a bit funny.

Appreciate the feedback, i hear you, the green stripe ways off abit, they look a tad universal, would need at least to match the with front seat headrests on the rears, or none at all, will see when it goes in, in 2026!!!! :loll

Will update here when i can asap.

Will be discussing the engine options for good this week as i have been messing about.

I have the M50 ready to mock up in the bay, then do a oem refresh on it and think about the turboing options.

The only other option in my head is the original M20 2.7 on tb's, or add a turbo in the mix on this.

Made some concrete decisions today.

Spec will be wilwoods all round, custom gaz gold coilover suspension, the engine i have calmed down on as i have other things that take care of my need for speed, so it will be M20 2.7 with throttle bodies, or been talking of possibly a 3.0 with bodies, not gonna go down the turbo route.

Colour i was going to go with the original ascot grey metallic, but also like the graphite metallic on the sports.

After seeing it again today, i am glad i made the choice with advice and discussions of course!, i was turbo on the brain, but for what i will use it for, would not matter.

I know the 2.7 on tb's will be lairy enough, but if i could use a 3.0ltr and tb's and maybe see more over 240bhp, i will be happy.

I am excited to get it on the go again. :launch :driving

wow...amazing.....one question, where did you get the fabric for the seats, mine are scheel as well, but are really faded, what used to be black is now a funky kind of brown.

thanks a million
