That looks fantastic!
1969 Europa S2 - 54/1869 I still can't believe I own one.
1978 Austin Mini - 1275, big brakes
1991 Ford Explorer - Lifted on 33s, custom lift and radius arms
2005 Chrysler 300C - chipped, lowered 22s
2003 GMC Yukon - chipped, lowered
You could say the stable is diverse

Very nice! Did you do all the upholstery work, use a kit, or have a shop sew them up?

Flares and wheels look awesome. I can't wait to see it painted. You did a real nice job on the seats.

I am just looking back through the pictures again... Your car is an inspiration for my conversion.  I just love how its all coming together. 

I was reviewing the engine placement pictures.  Did you have to modify the width of your S2 frame to get the zetec to sit that far forward?  It doesn't look like you have trimmed too much so far.
Cheers,
Ross

Thanks

I have not altered the frame, but the engine is a tight squeze up in the v, and the axles are angeled slightly forward from the gearbox.
