Over the last few months it’s been hard to find time to progress the Maxi, nonetheless it has moved forwards. In summary, both front wheel arches are now tubbed for the larger wheel size as per the works cars, the engine mount and gearbox mounts have been reworked to allow for a 1.6 litre TU-based engine (as opposed to 2.0 litre XU) and Sadev sequential box (which was made possible thanks to a loan of a dummy casing from SWR Motorsport) to be fiited. Bit of work needed to finish the job but it is nearly there.

Bought one or two things such as this customised oil catch tank, which is a copy of the works tank.

Tidied up the front end a bit and the car has now gone into storage pending a house move.
