Yeah would get a custom prop. Not expensive when you've got the ends to reuse.

Lining up the rear struts so it's square is my biggest worry of that route. The front struts will actually fit the front turrets with just a redrilling for the studs.

Tunnel will be needed so that's IVA whether I like it or not.

I'd need to fit the dash binnacle to get this all to work, might as well put the full dash in.

Will put some time into it this Fri seeing as i'm off work. Decision has to be made, rebody or transplant...?

With the lack of appropriate jigs I think i'll just have to go for a transplant and deal with it from there. Will be nothing worse than doing all this and then it crabs down the road. Front struts will work with re-drilled top plates.

I'll cut everything off the floorplan of the scoob except the prop shaft tunnel and rear turrets. Then I can get a good clear out of parts i'm not using and scrap metal.
Off to look at bag tanks for the boot.

So I got a day on the project.

It's now the right length to accept the 205 body. Hopefully weekend will bring more time to move it on!

100mm shorter now and nice and square. Should be good and strong by the time the body is on and the cage is in :)

So today I stood back and had a think. Is there any benefit in adding a full body to what will be a sprint car?

If I add a couple of roll hoops, some side bars, fibreglass sides and a big gay wing this is ready to go. :idea:

If you were going to do that there was no need to shorten the body???

Would be too long if I left it.

This'll make it more lively. Anyways the framework is now in for the fibreglass bodywork. Next stage is fabricating and welding in a custom cage. Anybody got a pipe bender?
