interesting how the header tank fits with the tubbed arches. can't beat a bit of extra bay space thanks to parts that fit well!

Loving the updates as ever - this thread being featured on Build Threads was inevitable

Its a lot more forward that it would be in a standard diesel etc.
Its pretty obvious they went through the parts bin and the 605 part was
"good enough"

So after all that, I made up some battery cables and stuck the booster pack on it to see if
it would turn over, and it did.

I then stood back for a second and asked myself "Is there any reason this thing wont start"
The answer was no. I plugged in the injectors, fitted a standard coil pack and did that adrenaline
filled drive to the filling station for a can of fuel.

I checked everything over again, switched on the fuel pumps and cranked it over but no joy.
I plugged in the laptop and tried again, Bingo, no RPM reading. I closed in the gap on the crank
sensor, nailed the start button for only the 3rd time and Boom, we had noise and lots of it

Chapter 33, Keep Yer Cool

The roof vents turned into a project of their own.



Old mesh

Mesh held to the vent with sticky foam

I'd often wondered how those vents were designed. Mystery solved!

The vents are pressed aluminium and the hinges are all pressed in 1 piece too.

I would be very difficult to make in carbon.

Chapter 34, Spoiled For Choice

OK, the roof spoiler, just bolt it on right? Fuck no, nothing is that easy on 514.

For some strange reason the 2 stand off's for the spoiler were at totally different angles and
one side had a 20mm spacer between the boot and spoiler.





Here is a pic of the 2 fitted, you can see they are not a mirror image of each other.







So I took the tailgate off the car in order to line up the spoiler to the correct angle.





Aluminium part made up.

Made in carbon

The difference between new and old


Everything Sanded and re lacquered

Love the detail and effort you have gone into for every single part of this build. I'd be afraid to take it out of the garage at this stage.

Excellent work as always! Not sure if it's been mentioned but have you thought about liveries for when it's done?

It's something that's been in the back of my mind from day one but I have yet to settle on
A design. I need to get it down out its wheels and outside for a look before I commit to a style.

Given it's a resto and you've had a set of it's original Belgian plates made up, would it not go together having it done up in the livery it ran at the time on those plates?

If it were a more famous or recognisable livery then yes but all the graphics this car wore from new were
Pretty shit. I could go with the more famous loeb graphics but then it will look like I'm doing a replica so
I think I will just go my own way.

As they say, it's only original once.
