    Default Iain's 20XE Trackday Nova

    Decided yesterday that I was going to take my Nova off the road again and do some bits to it that I regret not doing when I first built it (See my original WIP). The major aim is to get a good layer of paint, tidy up the underneath and maybe a bit more power?!

    Been stripping some of the front end down today.

    Bagan with it looking like a normal car





    First off, strip the front suspension off and drain the oil





    All off (new driveshafts have only covered a few miles since fitting )



    Stripped engine bay back and drained fluids, hopefully borrow an engine crane to remove it at some point







    And in typical WIP fashion, the engine bay good and bad bits
