OH my i just came across this...and had flashbacks... i did a frame off restore/upragde of a lotus 72 TC big valve... it was in BAAAAD shape when i got it but was nearly complete car parts wise...after around a year an a lot of swear words i had it back on the road...
your parents are nuts(but cool)!!! my car was FAST! and low and i was scared to drive it on most roads with people around... it would lay down black stripes when switching to second gear!
im not jealous of you for the build but i am for your darn youth!!! LOL you can see mine on my avatar
Haha Thanks! My parents are awesome! I Love Them! I also have a Lotus Elan M100 that I drive daily, I will be upgrading that a little bit after the Europa is finished!
Update- My dad and I got some things done this weekend.
We fitted a resister to the coil because the electronic ignition we have on it needs a 3 OHM resistance. Afterwards we fired it up again today, just to make sure everything worked! It sounds incredible!! However my mom got pissed off because all the smoke alarms went off when we stated it and she had to go outside to get away from the noise. We aren't going to start again until we move the car the other way around where the exhaust if facing outside the garage.
We also made sure that all of our gauges are working, which they are! We fitted the window frames and glass, and glued in our A-pillar strips. We have the dash and crash pad fitted now!! It looks great! Just need to do some final trimming up on that and we will be good to go, oh and a little more wiring needs to be done, but as of right now everything works and is looking good!!
Finally got all the air out of our brake lines and the brake pedal feels good! We ordered a front spoiler a couple days ago, should be here soon. Put our pioneer speakers in our door panels, and they look good and match my 70's pioneer radio I have! I also completed my tool kit! My upholstery shop made me a nice bag, which is close the the original, and I got the wrench and the screw driver, to finish it!
