Am I correct in thinking you're basically using the old style canister as a "cover" for the MK3 style filter?
Will the pipes mean there'll be a hole left at the top of the canister? Or can you disguise that too? (I can't remember the pipe layout differences between the MK1 and MK3)

Hi Martin, you are correct the old canister is merely being used to disguise the MK3 filter.
This was just something I got sidetracked with the other day as I keep thinking about how to modify it, I was having a sort through my parts and decided to cut the bottom off the original canister to see what could be done. I will cut off the top hose connection and weld it up later.

I like this setup as the cover canister is easily removed to make filter changes simple and it is also completely reversible if required.

I visited the paint-shop to check progress today and was pleased to see some good progress, after removing the protective high zinc paint I applied and getting back to bare metal the shell has been etch primed and the body shaping is well underway.

Hopefully now not too much longer till its all in primer.

In anticipation of having a painted bodyshell I have been going through my steering and suspension parts so that I can get it back on its wheels when it returns.

Most of the parts are now ready for fitting and the front suspension cage has also been repaired and powder coated.
