I know that otherwise it would already have one.
but the piping etc from the JD should come close to fitting.
if not I will do it with some custom stuff which is probably a better way to go anyways.

original plan was to just get it running properly to take on track.
now there are a few other problems.
like the clutch pedal wont come back out. not sure what the problem is there.

just needs a general going over again.

on a positive it hasn't leaked any oil or other fluids since I've had it so that's good.
just have to check the electrics and redo the gauges and ignition panel that i have made, needs a tidy up.
unfortunately I will be selling the SP20 soon as I don't drive it as much as I want to and I don't want to have two car projects that never get touched, plus I don't have room for 3 cars and a trailer.
It will be a shame to see it go but hopefully not a total loss on the fun factor. and more motivation to get the starion going and on the track.

cheers

Yep I had a friend at uni that had one, greatest POS I have ever encountered, I thought the Sigmas were bad. Everytime it rained he would have about 2" of water in all the footwells.

I'm guessing everyone here knows they are called Starions cause it's the engrish of Stallion right?
