1990 TT Build.

Ok, I know this is a monumental task but I feel I am up to it.
After being an N/A owner for the last 12 years I thought it was finally time I built a TT.

...from scratch! lol!

1st up fitted some Shnazzy Red underdrive pulleys...



All finished minus the plenum and ready to go in...



Mounted and gee what a nice clean chassis this is... notice I've completely hidden all plumbing and electricals lol!



The body is all painted but the acrylic has reacted with the plastic... er I mean alloy, so will need to rub it back before a clear coat goes on...



Added some nice Coilovers...



...watch this space!

Yeah I got it from Z1 Motorsports for $158.00 US. lol!
If the car doesn't work out I could always use the engine in a boat since it already has a prop big enough to push the Titanic lol!
