More pictures please :) - love following this thread. Can I buy this car when you are finished/atleast come see it sometime? Will you have it back painted before x-mas mate? Have you already told us the colour or is it a surprise?

I've been busy this week and finished the ECU wiring loom .. (and tested) - should fit nicely ..
Very complex, but looks simple once tied up....
 
Paint shop called today to tell me the car is in full primer and ready for colour... They will do up some samples and I will approve the colour on Monday - Might even be back by next weekend ..Upholstery has been delayed and wont be back this year .. prob not a bad thing as I have soooooo much to do before the interior goes in ...

Went down to the paint shop today and checked the colour samples.. The car has been really well primed and a few little body imperfections fixed! He is really doing a good job!!

Fired the computer up and calibrated all the sensors. All looks good, even my idle up valve is doing what it should.. Car will be back this week ... Painted!!

Cheers

If you are going to attempt to rewire an AW11 - make sure you have the correct wiring diagram for the year model ! - there are several different looms and the AGZE is totally Different to the AGE .... If you take your time the whole thing is easy ....

Hi Keith,
 
It looks fantastic and I see it has moved into the house.  Jo and the kids must be thrilled!
 
Looking forward to it taking shape.
 
Cheers
Peter

A Quick update .. I will post many more photos in the next day or two..
 
This is where I am at....
 
Engine is IN!
Intake is all plumbed and intercooler all in.
Wiring is all through - inc new harness for rear of car and engine.
Supercharger is primed.
Front and rear bumper reinforcement bars have been rebuilt (the typical rust situation although not bad - and the only real rust on the whole car!)
Dynamat throughout car with sound & heat shielding throughout too (way overkill)
Air Cond/vents are all in
Front and rear bumpers on
Front lights all in (HID)
New Eyebrows on (Nice!!!)
Rear lights on
Kick Ass Stereo wiring all through
Fuel tank all cleaned, de-scaled - installed with new walbro and level receiver.
All water plumbing is in – all the metal pipes have been bead blasted inside to remove all scale – every hose is brand new.
New Wheels have arrived!
 
Waiting on the following:
Suspension -  I am sticking with the MP Struts with new inserts (Bilstiens) to keep it legal.
Brakes will be full Wilwood front and rear..
Upholstery is still being done – I am also having my OEM steering wheel re covered with matching leather and stitching will be the same as the seats…
 
Issues:
Engine does not fire L - But the guys from EFI Performance are paying me a housecall next week to diagnose it – I’m not fussed (yet) as it’s a tough ask expected an out of the box ECU map to fire up, esp with the degree of mods.. I will this next week.
