Very sweet .... If that's an appropriate word to use for a potential beast :D
I think the design and colour of the wheels compliment the car very well.

Wow is in order!
I actually also have a BDG that I had built to fit into my elan. Figured the poor car couldn't take that HP and then opted for a 1700 QED SS engine.
Ended up getting a MK1 to fit the BDG.
Interested in the spec of your car, you should open a new post to discuss. I would have lots of questions on the build I chickened out on!

After finding that the clip/shaft/housing didn't line up I phoned Dave Bean-"Don't worry about it!" he said, " just leave the clip out" and I did... No problem yet.

I'm sure Colin would have left the clip out to save weight/cost if it wasn't needed....

Hope it's a tight fit in there.....

Cool! (Pun intended)

Would be good to see if all 4 exhaust runners are the same temperature...

There were four; 2 DHCs, 2 FHCs, one of each being LHD.

I'll reply in full once I'm back in the country, have my data in front of me and in a new thread.
