Rally Car EK4 built b16a
Hi all. I am new to this forum craic. My brother and I bought an EK4 rally car back in October with the intention of competing in the National Rally Championship in 2017. The car was cosmetically rough but mechanically good boasting fully built stafford b16a on Itb's. Aesthetics don't win rallys but the car was due some tlc so we decided to give the car a full once over for the upcoming season. As the work season drew to a close for my brother, An M-Sport technician, he decided to come home early this December and tackle into the honda.

First order of business was to put some kilometres up on the car in Tynagh before it got stripped.
Here are a few photos of the car as it landed and it being stripped

All in the space of 2 or 3 days. Then the project got delayed with sandblasting (we hired a special compressor and it broke down) slowing the project down dramatically. None the less when the interior and engine bay was eventually blasted and some additional fabrication carried out, it ready for paint. Stratos Silver was the colour, as used in the current Ford WRC Cars.

Few long days and longer nights put into this car but it has come together nicely. Engine and gearbox back in now. Car is finally ready to head for its new loom, Just waiting on brake components to arrive!
Change of plan with the championship due to work commitments but we'll see how it plays out. Sponsorship needed!
