The car looks great. After I repainted, it took me a while to get the R spoiler back on, I was very tempted to leave it off. Seeing your car makes me think about removing it again.

Good job on that. Mine looked about the same as yours. I don't have the skills to do it myself. I had to pay about $800, but got a new windshield and the whole roof repainted.

Sold the 142 to a person nearby. Plan was to bring the car to the wreck yard but a couple of weeks ago I was driving around town and noticed a red 144 driving further up the road. Decided to follow the car until it stopped and asked the driver if he was interested to buy the car as a parts car. Turned out his son was driving a 142 but was in an accident with that car and looking for a new front.. I offered to bring the chassis,

With the 142 out the door I decided to bring the C30 from my home shed to the workshop. The car has been sitting, or hanging on an auto lift, for years now...

Thought that with the car in sight there might come some progress.. There's the 240 first but you'll never know..

In the mean time work on the 242 is slowly progressing.

Finalised the clutch bearing setup,

Engine and the sequential gearbox are back in the car,

Also added the IPD/GT bracing.

New wheels on the C30? :blink:

Bought them for the R but they fit the C30 nicely.
