    Out Run got a reaction from privatewire in The Odd Cylindered And Odd Looking Beast From The Far East | How many Euro pallets will fit inside?   
    I finally bothered my arse, to replace the false floor that I made from cheapo ply, during Lockdown.
    I've kept the frame, but went with 18mm phenolic ply, this time. Instead of the central access hatch, I have hinged half of the floor, so I have maximum access to tbe surprisingly useful space, which used to be the footwells and seat squab area.
    It's fitted with proper bike fork mounts this time - not the tubing from my loft ladder handle and conduit clamps - and x8 lashing points, as opposed to zero.
    It's not finished, yet, as I am going to add T Bar handle latches, a gas strut and make a frame of sorts to hold x4 25L drums, the frame, along with the bike mounts will be easily removable, so I can keep the flat floor, but it probably won't ever be much 'tidier'. Given the use of this car is threefold; Green laner, MTB carrier and anything else/tip trips etc.
    As you know, I am hardly precious about it.
    It's a workhorse and always will be.
    I also upped my funnel game, by buying a couple of bolt on magnets and attaching them to the funnels  #gamechanger and after 5.5 years, it has earned better than the shit, ill fitting, mismatched Aldi seat covers that it permanently wore and now rocks my extremely long serving Town & Country set. They make a lot of sense in here and are the best seat covers I have had. 
    I am down to 2 for the other cars now. I guess I will be buying 2 more.

    Shifted these roofing sheets about half a mile, from my parents to my sisters. One Time rolled up on me in a Corsa and politely pulled me over (headlight flash). He was sound as. Just recommended I tie something visible to the back of the load.
    TBH, I usually do. 😬

    I don't give a shit about my paint and JB is the same. They definitely would scratch a decent finish.
    I use HDD magnets to keep this piece of caravan awning stuck to my Quickjack, in case of driving rain. They're powerful, eh?

    Also it turns out that an MR2 turbo happily carries 100L of WVO.
    The rear boot on these is always referred to as small, but given the size of the car, I can never agree.
    I should probably include the goings on with that car in this thread, too - evidence of recent engine loom swap, highlighted by me not clipping the carpet back into place.

    Found a couple of cool BOAT's, with no TRO's. 
    Good fun for the nooby driver and unsuitable vehicle.

    @Jim BellI reckon your grille would be better grey, like the lower half of the body.
    Or add more black, like a winch bumper, snorkel, skid plate, modulars, arch extensions, roof rack etc 🤪

    It's still amazing and doing all the daily business. I want to lift it and get some real tyres but funds are short at the moment.

     
     

     

     
     
    I want to do some hillclimbing, a track day, some off roading and maybe autotesting too. I would quite like it to be the worst at a lot of motorsports, just to prove that you can enjoy yourself what ever you're driving. 
    Everything is a race car if you're determined enough and don't mind coming last.
