even scimi chassis are well constructed from big gauge steel i would first split body from chaiss b4 investing any money in that car....that picture form underneath does not look very promising. for the brakes i would use some modern hi-spec ones...usually princess calipers can be sold for quite googd money...so your hi-spec upgrade would repay a bit
Still not fully thought through the galvanising, but will almost certainly get it blasted as have a place that does stuff so cheap it'd almost cost more in wire wheels for the angle grinder (plus it's so nice just to hand something over and get it back all clean just needing some paint).
Caliper wise, thinking Princess because I have them lying around plus they always have really nice pedal feel and worked great for 8 years on my old Escort track car. But the sliding 5 series bits I will keep in mind as a back up as they might help with other clearance things
In other news I got up to 6 bolts/hour yesterday, just the rear bumper beam area to take to bit now.
Also examined the Pinin axle, and let's just say it's not what I was told it was (i.e. it's an open diff...) You win some you lose some - might just use the stock axle now and invent a disc brake setup. Will help the budget, plus the only wheels I can find I like in 5x114.3 are way too expensive for this built.
Anyone else struggle with flux in projects? I just can't seem to get a fix on exactly what I'm going to do with this one yet...
