Was a modified GT from Ebay when i bought her in 05' and has been used as a donor to home my G40 bits leaving a forum member with a strong GT engine conversion for a great price...

Have a GT Inlet, FMIC and a PSD 4 Branch System on Order so watch this space...!

Cool car :thumbsup:

I've never seen a high res pic of your G40 either, no wonder you were gutted when it got written off, it looked mint. :(

Was absolutely gutted Al,

I did do some chavvy things to it - sunstrip - blacked out repeaters etc...

But i hadn't found the way until the GT conversion started! :lol:

I do get quite emotional thinking of the original chassis - it was pretty good but needed a fair amount of bodywork to be A1...

I'm happy with the black though - wanted Jac M's black G40 from PSD with all the mods done - but i had just bought my black chassis - and coilovers and was skint when it went up for sale...

I managed to save the wheels though lads! :smirk::thumbsup:

Quick update...

I have a spare engine and windage tray ready for a 1341 rebuild at some stage (sooner rather than later) and have fitted the PSD exhaust with a major problem.

Following that being repaired the car is now waiting for rear brakes, engine mounts, exhaust and service before going to be MOT'd and Taxed.

I have a runabout 1L (Foxxy) that is keeping me by for now -keep watching for the FMIC etc pics....
