180Kgs to be precise Alasdair... The 'box adds another 90Kgs..

Interesting to look at an ES9 crank and pistons. Performance items and surprisingly light. The pistons almost look like slipper pistons...

You didnt even keep the struts and tops off donar jim?? Or did you have a pair of scrap ones you put on??

Good work.. think of this though.. this that your team are doing I always have to do alone..

so I can say I know whats involved and two does help sometimes to lighten the load..

I sooo wish id still my v6 .. that shell looked perfect to have seen kept good... OR I would of done a swap. My blue v6 really was bad..

I couldn't save the struts and tops Paul as the stipulation from the scrapper was the car had to be a rolling shell.

V6 struts and tops are unique to the V6 anyway so no use to the majority. I do have a spare set anyway if necessary...

Nope, it'll be done when it's done Alasdair. I want to enjoy the project and it won't be rushed :-D

Don't worry Alasdair, the Activa will remain on the road in full working order until all parts required for the conversion (engine, gearbox and so on) are all fully refurbished and ready to go/be fitted.

Then, and only then will the Activa come off the road and the conversion proper carried out. Hopefully that will take no longer than a week...
