The 6R4 is a project we are seriously considering starting but to be done properly about the only thing worth keeping from the metro is the shell, just about everything else needs junking.
The way we are considering going is using a Ford Sierra 4x4 set up, full running gear suspension and engine with the engine in the boot as per the original.
Lots of fabrication but it would be a long term project and we have a lot of facilities to do the job.
Interestingly the engineering firm next door to us actually makes the suspension bushes for the 6R4 along with a few other polyeurothane bits and a couple of them them have been round for us to look at.
