Nightfire MK1 ZR-BRM

Hello all, ive mainly been on themgzr over the last 6 months or so but remembered I signed up here once upon a time! Thought id get some pics up of the progress on my ZR 120 so far

A quick one as it was to start with:



And then the stripping out / refitting began!

















Thats how it sat for a while untill I managed to get hold of the centre console and window switch panel (kudos to Fast Alan!) which is on the p*** in this pic.




Trophy lights and rally mud-flaps also added:, although the flaps are a bit off centre, refit probably needed




Wheels refurbed and powdercoated in shadow chrome thanks to wheelfixit:




Cheeky shot with a mates A3 cabrio




Armrest fitted and replica BRM lid added, not 100% happy with it yet need to refit really



And a new manifold heat shield and BMC CDA added this weekend:



And thats all to date!




Next up are BRM door cards and some Janspeed goodies, and sorting out the bloody tappetts which are doing my head in! Other than that maybe an incar PC and a brake upgrade. Cheers for looking!

Very tidy motor mate, I like it a lot, make sure you get pics of the door cards once there fitted.


How much did they charge you for refurb ?

The powdercoating was 300 for the set of four inc. centre caps. Mobile company called wheelfixit, really pleased with the finish on them

You could do a dash swap?

At least the grain would match the doorcards also.
