Ha ha! I knew you’d done something similar.

I looked for your photos but couldn’t find them on Photobucket so freestyled it

Satchshift fitting

Back in 2012(!) when I bought Danny's Quaife'd BE box off him it came with a Satchshift. At which point I sold my MA version and cracked on with the then project car which was the 16v White S2 Rallye. The thing was that in doing this car, I'd welded in a trimmed down version of the stick gator mounting plate so I didn't have one and I'd forgotten that. So the starting point for fitting the Satchshift to this car was to make a bit of tube.

I'd not made a tube out of flat sheet before but I found a paint tin that was the right diameter so used that as a form to bend the steel around. Ended up with this - it's pretty much round



Did the necessary prep, which included blanking the original gear lever hole and welded bit of formed tube in.



Now having fitted a number of Satchshifts over the years any one who has also done it will know that it is enough of a faff to bolt the bits onto the bulkhead with the interior stripped and an empty bay, but it's really a two person job with the car assembled. To remedy that I welded nuts onto the bulkhead so no spanners are needed - just a hex key

I also don't know how the shell was used previously as it had the cutout and drilled holes for the upper pushrod gator, but the other holes weren't drilled which was a bit weird



All fitted:

Did the S1 shell not have the 2 captive nuts for that pedal box brace? They are in my 106 & Saxo.

Pedals

Bought some Motamec pedal covers, but they weren't a great fit and being thinner alloy that say a set of Sparco's decided that they needed to be modified:



Bit of time shaping them:



Did all three:



Drilled the pedals and welded nuts onto the back to simplify fitting. Bit of matt black to tidy them up...



Mounted

Finally managed to get the paperwork sorted and it arrived back from the DVLA this week.



14(!) registered previous keepers which means that there's some significant gaps in my knowledge
