    216 GTI MG Cup race car build

    Just to keep the forum rolling....

    Finally after a lot of discussions, 2 x 6 hour drives the GTi race car is home :glare I must admit when the seller said it came with spares i wasnt quite ready for the amount of spares :laughing2 ended up filling the car and a single cab pick up full Was everything from 3 engines, 3 gearboxs (one was brand new in box) 4 x new Rover calipers, every suspension arm and bolt- all band new Rover items, 2 New rads- again genuine Rover but most important (and the main selling point for me) all the genuine Rover Dunlop GTi Challenge suspension and braces- again never used the list is endless. Anyway onto the car, the shell has been dipped to remove ll the sound deadening and seam sealer, all the spot welds have been stitch welded, roll cage fitted and the shell has been painted underneath, inside and in the engine bay. Here's a few pics of her so far, still a long road ahead but ive managed to get hole of somewhere to store and work on the car so plan is to have her ready for early part of next year for bit of testing, any issues sorted ready for the start of the 2022 MG Cup race series :lmfao
