I want a bit of a project car but I am always quite hesitant on cars that have not been certified yet. I have access to everything you could possible need to modify things but I guess it would be great to get the more knowledgeable peoples opinions on this.

You could expect to pay close to $2000 for certification inspections and compliance.

Assuming everything was done properly so far, another couple of grand to finish plus paint at about $2000 ( unless you can do it yourself). So you are at about $13000 on the road.

There have been some cheap 7's on TM recently, already complete and certified. Personally, I would be reluctant to tackle someone else's partly finished project unless it was very highly spec'd.

Up to you really, sorry.

Thanks 7ish. Don't be sorry, it is that feedback I am looking for. I am quite mechanically inclined and I have access to multiple machine shops at work with just about all you could ever want in terms of equipment, but I have never really messed around with cars too much.

A arms on the early mcGregors prob won't pass anymore, so factor that in for a start. The rules on most other things havent changed much.

A chassis that age most likely needs drive shaft hoops added for compliance. But they aren't hard to put into a McGregor if the tunnel is still partly open like this one.

It seems like he has considered this as he mentioned having new A arms. Good to point out though, thanks
