Sneak peak of my (eventually) race car - Now with Motec

Well i haven't really posted any pics up for years and years of my MR2 which was a street car but has now become a race car, well one day i hope it will be finished and driving.
 
Ill start up a build thread soon i hope, but the car for a long time untill recently was just a chassis, everything stripped off it (no motor, no interior, no wiring, no brakes ect just metal and some panels on the outside, but now im at the point of putting the car together there will actually be things to take pictures of!
 
But heres a little sneak peak of the car, well i suppose you cant really see much, except the air jacks im testing.
 
EDIT: Original YouTube video i posted has been removed, heres another one showing the air jacks

    That is such a cool looking car and the air jack is something else. You are welcome to tow the car up to the MR2 trackday challenge to show it off! would love to see it on display.

    Ha ha yeah. Well hopefully one day the car will be running and racing and wont just be a coolness factor.
     
    Heres a few pics
     
    I know im crazy when i have V8 Supercar control parts on loan, for test fitting, while im waiting on mine to be made.

     
    Poor pic, but you can see the rear jacks actually goes through the chassis rail!

     
    And heres what the rears look like installed and plumbed in.
    The hose is BMRS (Brown and Miller) smooth bore teflon with teflon impregnated glass braid.

     
     
     
    Front jack plumbed up.

    Yeah feel free to use the pics.
     
    The shifter was just not bolted in, i had a few things getting zinc plated and thought as the shifter was exposed and rusty get it done too.
    Ill be running the E153 but maybe with dog gears.

    If you do run a dog box you may as well use this:-

    SQS shifting mechanism (they have a dog box AND synchro versions) i would love one, but do not have the coin.

    Thankyou Brendan,
    It is great to be of help to you. Your build will inspire more to build more MR2 'race spec' cars so we may see a field of MR2's in some series in the new few years instead of fading away into obscurity.
    Sweetpete bought one of the shifter units from a guy who ran a std 6 speed but upgraded to a dedicated sequential gearbox and paddle shifter. I think you should go with a standard unit with a gearset upgrade or standard unit.This way you can come to grips with the car and driving in a circuit environment while not having to concern yourself with managing a tricky gearbox. Once you have mastered your car, the tracks and maximised everything else, then put a fancy gearbox in the car or you will wear out a lovely piece of jewelry before you can maximise the rest of the car.
    Eg: Ric Shaw put a $15k dog gearset into his Bathurst 12hr car. By the second day, it was removed with the standard unit installed due to the problems the co-drivers were having and Ric's concerns of damage to the box by the co-drivers. They are cool, but comes with a hefty price and responsibility.
     
    I hope you do fit the refuel to the front of the car.  It will be a first in Aus.
    I found a site with wireless switches for the steering wheel. http://www.cartek.biz/STEERINGWHEELCONTROLS.html
     
    Cheers
