New pic of my Elf

Post  Zef on Wed Mar 17, 2010 10:26 am

Thought I had better post a recent pic of my Elf as it is now seen as you all haven't seen it since the imm last year.

I'm certain some of you won't like it but I do and she's still a work in progress and a daily driver.

Here goes Very Happy

It's an Elf! How could any of us not like it? Laughing

Thanks, I wasn't sure how it would go down.

The spec is fairly standard just a 998 with a 12g940 head, stage 1 kit and hif38, vented disc brakes from a crx up front and when I get some more caliper brackets made I'll do a build thread.

I like it and also its the way I would like to go with mine, I dont have the cash to have it concourse and to me If I cant go concours then I want a playfull and cheery look like yours, not saying that the unmodified ones arent cheery. What are those you have on for shoes? the arches look like stage 5 race ones? Keep it up.

Thanks, I was hoping people would take a liking to it and appreciate where I am going with the project. Some time soon she's getting a temporary heart transplant to a 998 A+ engine while I get the original one sorted. Spec for that will be nice as I'm thinking along the lines of 1046cc wedged lightened and fully balanced bottom end, light weight flywheel etc, pocketed block so I can still use the 940 head with a nice cam and maybe a hif44. It'll be revvy and fun, just how I like 'em.

The arches are Miglia ones that I've modified to fit and she's sat on 10x6 revolutions with Yokohama A032r tyres and yes they do grip like they look. I surprise many a modern car when I go belting past them into a round-a-bout. Twisted Evil Trouble is I need bucket seats as I tend to slide in the seat a bit too much. Laughing

Hey Zef, any chance of more pics in different angles, maybe engine bay and interior and closer wheel shots, sorry to be so demanding but its also for research for my car.

I like it, but then I'm certainly not opposed to wheel arches on an Elf, as you may guess.

Post  brooks on Sun Apr 18, 2010 11:54 am

that looks really nice im doing sothing similar to that but with slightly smaller wheel arches could you possibly post some more pictures up of the car so i could get a sort of idea what mine will look like with arches it would help so much. great car Smile
