EXOCET KIT CAR BUILD
The MEV Exocet kit car build. This kit involves taking the body off a mazda mx5 and using all the drive train that is left.
our mx5 was already turbo charged by us a few years back and had seen lots of track action including SPA Franchocshamps and the Nurburgring not to mention a dozen uk tracks. the next step was to turn it into a full track car. with the MEV kit we should save just under half the weight of the Mazda making it 400bhp per ton at the wheels.

BMW 7 SERIES
Daily drivers do not come much more comfortable than a bmw 7 series with big profile tyres. whilst we love to hoon around a track in our spare time its always nice to just drive to and from the workshop in a quiet comfy car and 1989 bmw 7 series does the job nicely. she still has a Alpine 178BT cd player with JL Audio XD400/4 power amp C5 525 csi front speakers and 2 6w3v3 subwoofers in-between the rear seats.
being a daily driver the clifford 2way remote start alarm keeps her safe and ables us to warm her up from the inside of our house.
W115 or schmetterling as she is called..........yes there is a story there. its german for butterfly before you copy it into goggle. The idea here is to have a cool looking classic car that doesn't break the bank but can also be used to take the wife and kids out for the day. After buying she needed a few niggly jobs doing. Speedo didn't light up, heater didn't work, washers didn't work, few bulbs and had no rear seat belts. all of those jobs done we moved on to re-trimming the very tired seats. Next will be full disctrete audio set up where we might build a subwoofer into a old suit case.... watch this space.
