And I know a clever bunny like yourself has wrapped the harness bar in clear vinyl to protect
That fancy paint job.

Not families with that. I'm talking about the wide rolls of vinyl that sign writers use, you can get it in clear.
It's a nice touch on door bars and all the areas that will get kicked.

Helicopter tape is like really thick Tough vinyl, usually quite expensive.

Alright peeps...

So.. decided to give the steering rack a bit of a spruce up.. it was stripped/blasted/powdercoated and then just pop it all together..

Yeah... because its always that easy isnt it!?!

The needle bearing was a bit notchy (knackered) so i popped up to the suppliers only to be told they were unavailable.. a bit of head scratching and we decided the french were being typically awkward in using a custom bearing and to drop down on the OD to the nearest std size and i'd machine a sleeve to hold it in place:









Once that was all done I had a shiny rack:



So.. the pedalbox went in.. the rack went on and i started on the steering arms...

Aaaaaand another issue arose:

Ya see these little rod end spacers:



I found 3..

Guess how many i needed??

Yesssssss 4.. thats right!!!

So, after much swearing and cursing i decided to make 1... some bar was thriwn in the lathe and i fired up the Ateam music...



And just like Hannibal and the boys... i love it when a plan comes together!!:



Colomn was bolted up.. arms fitted.. we had steering!!







I did start getting pedals attatched but was running out of time and correct sized bolts..

I took a few step-by-step shots of this grar linkage bracket...

To start off, we have 2 pieces of 1.5mm sheet folded into channels.. some laser cut discs.. and a couple of bits of tube...




The discs were welded onto 1 end of the tube to create a sort of bucket with a hole in the bottom.. the channels were welded together to create a thinwall box section.. holes were cut for the tubes and the whole lot bolted down to a jig plate



The ends of the box were cut and shaped to follow the tibes nicely:



Another piece of channel was pressed, the end shaped and the whole lot was welded up:




Left to cool, powdercoated.. and fitted up:





I also fitted the bootlid and checked the thermoformed rear screen for fit as thats being bonded in Saturday..






The workshop at my folks unfortunatly has been inhabited by bats so the ClassicAdditions cover was brought out of the toolbox.. but first i blew all the dust off and took a couple of 'reflection' shots.. please remember the car is still straight out of the paint booth and the finish is as it came off the gun, it still needs a final polish...






And then tucked it up until the weekend....

Anyone that knows me, (and my previous poor luck) will know i'm quite particular nowadays in who i let work on my car...

Sean (bespoke wiring solutions) did a fantastic job on the wiring..
Zane (ZLS) absolutely mastered the painting..
Dave (flockitanway) has nade the dash look stunning
And to that list i can add..

Russ Davis (ginge) (ultimate windscreens) to that list.. the guy drove nearly 2 hours to fit the glass and i'm so happy i found/chose him.. his attention to detail and knowlege is first rate and his results are first rate!!!

The windows themselves are hardcoated items (rear screen is also thermoformed) and are from MaxiMotorsport.. fantastic quality!!









So happy!!!!

I also got around to finishing the front brake pipes and fitted the stainless brackets up in the arches..

Looks gorgeous! I can't help but shudder when I see an MA gearbox though! All that bling and you chuck a chocolate gearbox in!

Ooosh that's bloody excellent looking.

What's with the engine mount (ecu side)? Did I miss a page in the thread where you fabricated a new mount?

The box has been fine *touch wood* i used it with the carb'd engine for 5 years as my daily driver.. as said its only an 8v so theres no earth shattering power going thru it.. its not a track car.. i'm fairly mechanically sympathetic on stuff so i dont see the point of added weight and expense and BEing it...

Engine mount is the Satchell item that moves the engine over.. the gearbox mount is a std item just modified to take into account the engine shift...

Ah cool.

Whats the reasoning in moving the engine over? Wont that have a knock on effect with the driveshaft lengths and everything else?
I'm not being negitive about it btw, I'm just genuinely interested.

Yeah... shafts needed to be modified.. but in running the satchell kit with 307 hubs, off the shelf wasnt an option anyway.. i used 307 shafts (they use a MA box on some models) the 307 intermediate carrier and 4th engine mount and had them shortened in the hollow section...

The biggest factor is to improve the balance of the car and try to get some weight over towards the passenger side...

Alright folks... how are you all???

Right, been a bit busy recently... i could give you a list of excuses but basically... i dont have to explain myself to you lot

First up, started a new engine mount, but i'll show you more of that when i get the rest finished....






Dragged the gearbox outside for some TLC in the sun and various bits of the engine got plated/anodised/vapour blasted....








So we had them bits... and an empty engine bay....





I think you can tell the next stage.....
