Mod: + Info: - Tiley Project - Building a rally car

I see a lot of differant installs for this and that...So thought I would do one on how to build a car from scratch.... Tiley are in the process of building a new race car so I will document this with what info and pictures I can.


The FIA shell arrived and was converted from left hand drive to RHD. The bulkhead of Gavo's car was used for this. Gavo'scar is an impressa I purchased to help a few friend who needed parts.

The car when finnished will be entering the championship races at Castle Coombe, so going up against Poxy and Terry. Should be fun...

Nick the owner of Tiley's and driver will be measured up for the seat soon so as the steering can be placed as he wants it.
The bars for the seats has to be changed as its going from LHD to RHD and the bars are to possition the balance with drive and co driver. Of course there will be no co driver in the CC championships.

Had another look and Dave (Head mechanic)has been filling holes, started on wiring loom, Fitted bonnet vent and done a bit of body stengthening. The seat rails are now in the right positions. The car will be stripped again before respray.

The shell has most the holes filled and will be ready for spraying very soon. The loom is in place and Dave will be removing the wiring that is not required. The loom will then be removed and the car will be of to Hanham for the spray job.

The car is now ready to be stripped again for the paintwork.
Love the dash feels like suede, coated with glue electrically charged and sprayed with the fluffy stuff. Nice job of roof vents,
Colour = Lambo orange..Looks much better than it sounds...

Went to spray shop with Dave to see how the car is doing.... The inside has been sprayed thought I would give you an idea of the colour.

Just in case you racers are wondering....The rear uk300 spoiler and bonnet vent are for show when the car sits in showroom. The sti5 spoiler and original bonnet vent will have to be used when racing...
