    Classic Replica Build

    As a few of you may have seen, I recently picked up a pretty much unstarted Classic Replica's kit complete with donor parts from a Jaguar XJS V12.

    Here it is loaded up on the trailer last weekend

    Some good feedback/info so far, thanks

    Can anyone shed any light on the steering rack/column?

    I can only tell you what my mate used which was a Sierra column and Escort MK2 steering rack.

    Yes been using Mega Squirt for a few years, had a few issues with the original set up MS1 but since upgrading to MS2 it is superb.

    I have the original build manual, not that it is worth much!

    It looks like the rear radius/trailing arms and front ARB are used in the build - is this correct?
    They are missing from my pile of donor parts, so if someone can confirm that would be appreciated as I will need to source these items.

    Good luck and welcome to the growing number, albeit very slowly, of Viper owners! Remember Bob Busbridge of Cobretti is still in businesses. www.cobrettiviperv8.com

    Thanks

    Yes I have spoken to Bob once already. I think phone rather than email seems to be the only way with him though!

    Remember that you will need to show a collapsible column for IVA
