    Thanks!

    Sadly updates will be a bit slow for the next few months atleast. I am working on chassis components at home right now, but I'm in the middle of a garage reno at the cottage, which will make a spot to build this car, once I get a garage floor, this chassis should come together pretty quick and the pics can start flowing!

    Props for such an ambitious and complete start to finish project, I'd love to have a 4 cylinder economical and powerful D. Good choice. I only wonder how it will sound!

    This restoration job looks amazing with the tub and framework! Looking forward to seeing this completed with your swap

    Reading through this thread, I'm not quite sure of what kind of engine it is... What kind of engine is that? You mentioned that it was a GM engine if I'm not mistaken.

    Engine is a 2.2 ecotec (L61) from a 02-06 cavalier / cobalt or similar.

    The brakes are stock in the rear, but 99+ miata brakes up front.

    I am not sure if you can see those painted calipers while running the stock wheels, but they look very nice painted.

    Mine are powdercoated all around, you have to be looking for them to notice with the delorean wheels. Oh well.

    I doubt it, but the front calipers Iím buying come red, had to coat the rears with something, may aswell match
