Insanity Too

Here are the stories and Pictures of the Project build.

Various developments, upgrades and repairs etc.

Firstly why "Insanity Too"?
Its a little obvious really, it is both my second car, (number 2) and I am still questioning if building this or any race car is equally insane as buying the first car, especially as the costs build up, even for a relatively low cost build like this!

The project.
This car is based on a shortened Discovery 1 chassis with the engine and gear box moved back in the chassis.

I had decided to go down this route as I had a very good chassis from a scrap car I purchased for spares, it meant I could easily recover a lot of parts from the first car and it meant I would be using many standard Land Rover parts that are relatively cheap and easy to source.

The original build Project.

Here is the story of how we went about building a totally new car on a limited budget.
