Cheers dude, no door / wing interaction if anything it has more room!

Always loved the kanjo look they are just so tough, battle scarred, mismatched bits...it's a forgiving way to build too as you don't have to make it pretty which is me all over haha. Function, then maybe form!

Progress is still being made, but slowed by a) me trying to be a perfectionist and b) every job creating 3 more!

2 of 4 arches have been cleaned, tidied and undersealed, including silly jobs that I will appreciate in the future, like putting tubing over light connections etc as i can't run arch liners now and they will get corroded / cruddy otherwise...

The seat is also in, but it created work.

It is soooo low down that the steering wheel was in my eyeline! Also 1 of the mounting points I planned to use for the harness was part of the old seat frame, so need to get a spreader plate and make a new mount, and I had to lower the column which was guesswork as the 'net only revealed custom bracketry jobs, but I found a way ;)

Vid shows the standard position at the top and new at bottom...

And finally I found this Kanjo styled Honda City, such a similar shape...

Need to get done asap!!!

Did you use two nuts as spacers on the steering column ? ;)

lol nope. I will give it a decent amount of time once she's back on the road to check it's all legit and then reveal, I'm not gonna give anyone tips on how to potentially make their car dangerous if I'm not sure, I have wrenched on the column and it wont budge a mm tho so am sure it's ok!

I made up two 10mm spacers to drop the front of the column down :) worked a treat :)
