Yeah that's cool. Wish they came in that shape in Australia, think it's called a "City". Should be a damn hairy ride with that Piazza setup. 8)

cheers guys its a kadett city special we only got them in this country with the 1.2 which is fine around town but your never going to win any sprints with one :lol: and my other project has around 600bhp so it did feel exceptionaly slow and i had seen that you guys do this swap hence the idea for the swap 8) the piazzas suffer very badly with rot over here but they are quite rare but one came up very cheap with a resently rebuilt engine the shell was to far gone so it donated all it's running gear 8) 8)
