Nice progress on the gearbox, curious about future real life experience on that automatic torque biasing helical limited slip differential :clapping:
Me too :) i will definitely share the experience, but everything is better than open diff ;)

I quickly made tool for the diff bearings, and finished the gearbox, now the heart of my car is complete!

I started welding the body, first patch came out not too bad but there was good bit of guessing how it supposed to look
Tomorrow i will make attempt to make reinforcement plate on top.
Also my repair panels and wings arrived.

After removing filler and fiber glass
I found out that every corner of the body requires welding, due to lack of time once i cut and fabricate bit of metal, it's going inn regardless if it fits or not :)

Welding done! Yay! Now bit of gringing and it's going to be blasted and primed.
Also my aluminium skid plates arrived!
At the blasting place i found original f4 used by Irish police on Dublin airport.

I collected the body from the blasting place, they did good job while blasting, but they supported the body on the lift in the wrong place and bent the body a bit.
I found couple places where i need to weld it but otherwise happy with the resultScreenshot_20220419-140211_WhatsApp.jpg

The body went to the body shop, for some filler and epoxy primer, well it supposed to be done last month, but as always it takes more time, in the meantime i got new door seals and lock inserts.
