Home Base Car Kit Progress Cost Sponsors  
   

The car returned to the road in August 2007, still some finishing jobs to do, but right now I'm having too much fun driving it.

 

 

I'm afraid I haven't found time recently to update the progress of this project, although I will try and get around to it soon.

Follow the progress through the stages as we transform the MR2 into an F355 replica (most recent events are at the top)
