and that's where it all started i'm hoping that i can do this justice!, over time i've learnt that it`s a good idea to get as much as possible before you start, so you can get on without having to waste time so two year's went by in collecting parts (not a lot of money/time ) i like to re cycle rather than by new in the process of hunting for bits to rebuild it, i found another one for parts and when striped down i thought that if there`s enough left over a rat-rod hence one became two

the black one is going to be a retro classic with a 19 turbo diesel lump out of my citroen xsara, m.g.b front and rear suspension, wire wheel`s, and striped down loom /steering out of said xsara i'm hoping to have it as my daily drive
the red one is still open to change but will be a rat with a touches of bully (that's Rough And Tatty not covered in rust as we don't have californian weather)

the red one was only suppose to be for spare's as i was told it was to far gone to be put back on the road by the bloke i bought it from and he did the same as he (the b post was down to him )

and as it cost me 150 and i sold the engine/box and suspension for 350 and b post and drivers door :tup: i had a good look at what was left and decided that i would use it for a r a t (ruff and tatty )and to try some things out for the black one .
i needed some new suspension and found an old scabby kit car rolling chassis (the reason for this was that i was going to fit citroen bx suspension on but as im trying to get it no the road this year i will go with what iv got at the mo )

ive been trying to do the rear wheelarch's but i just couldn't get my head round getting them to look right (and found my self doing either think else in stead including filling back in the rear light i cut ) so i decided to get on with the fillin panal at the front

now all i have to do is make the other one look that good

with the success of the fillin panel at the front and the lack of plate to do the o/s i set to with the rear of the car/boot and wheel arch now i had an idea what i was going to do but didnt know if it would work (and might have gone horridly wrong) so i didnt take any photos as i was doing it the problem was that i copped the kit car rear end and the back of the chassis was too wide to allow for the back of the arch to have a nice flowing shape so i bit the bullet and cut the rear cross bar off trimmed the diagonal bars down put the bar back in 2" up and 2" further back made a new bar to protect the petrol tank (now more by good luck then any judgement ) i have more room for the exhaust to go under the boot the tank fits lower down and there looks to be more then enough room for the arch to go in now

which lead to trying the pedal box for size now i know that there is enough room for the pedals (its tight but will go ) but the servo was another thing no room under the floor as there is only 5 " no room for it to go on the bulkhead as carbs are there so i have a metro set up i think at the moment it will go but we will see this now means body off,put the bulkhead in, try the pedal box in and see.if this dont work then it will have to be a remote servo under the passengers dash.

Liking both of these, so much work, where the hell do you get the time from, I have trouble with one project and that has stalled for sometime now.

Wasn't keen on the light cages, glad you refitted the metalwork. Having said that frenched in is good and if the cage idea is what you were after how about frenching the lights in and adding the cage over the top but following the original contour of the bodywork rather than a box cage.
