Got a big weekend planned with loads of stuff to get done while I have the car over a pit at my folks house, get the coolant plumbed in, fuel hose in place and hopefully the throttle cable. Going to be making a new throttle pedal so keep em peeled for how thats going.

Here are a few pictures of some of the stuff going in the beast, just a bit of something to wet the appetite:

Wipac Free Forms, their gonna get some serious bulbs in them too, might stretch to HIDS if I can afford it.

Hi Guys

Been busy working on the car, unfortunately not too many pictures right now. I do however have a couple of snaps of my new throttle pedal, all stainless with skateboard bearings keeping it super smooth. I decided to ditch the converter to the original pedal as the angle fo the pedal was awkward compared to the brake and clutch, so the new pedal has the same centre of rotation.

I will have many more pictures after christmas as it getting hit hard in the festive break.

2lrminivan - I had the throttle pedal made to my own design at a mates fabricating shop. Its not completely finished yet as it really needs a return spring attached to it and some stops. More photos to come on that.

Buddylove - Here is a link to the Fuelcat site:

I think its witchcraft but apparently its something to do with chemical reactions.

Very impressed with the fuel filler cap! did you fabricatre the plate and piping yourself?Really like the way that you dont need to pop the bonnet to fill her up and that the filler cap is in the corner. Will your bonnet pin be placed on the same plate as the filler cap?

Hey Phil

Zcars built the petrol filler cap plate for me, I have had gussets put into each corner of the former engine bay opening to mount the bonnet to, I will be mounting the bonnet this coming week, it needs some cut from it to accept the anti roll bars and petrol tank as it is one of the scooped bonnets. I intend to bolt the bonnet down as it is not somewhere I will need to go very often, especially with the petrol filler now sticking through it.

Bit of an update, been beavering away on it over the last five days, got lots of things done and now realise the full extent of what is to come to get it finished. Lots & lots more work, combined with a lot of head scratching followed by fettling to get everything to fit properly, not forgetting putting everything in place then taking it out again about four times. Oh the beauty of building cars. I shall rant no longer and get a few pictures up:-)

I got the bonnet fitted.

I got some of the sound deadening fitted.

I then thought it would be a good idea to have somewhere to run my electrical cables & rear brake lines & clutch line right down the middle of the car.

Then I started work on the rear bulkhead.

More to come soon...................

Its coming together nicely.. What Steering column are you using? Are you using the stock rack or something different? The bracket for your pedal assembly did you fab that yourself or get it from Zcars? Sorry for all the questions :D

keep it up :) looking forward to the next installment

Hey Irishdude

Sterring column is from Zcars and I believe it is called the SVA column, but I am not 100% on that, I checked my invoice and all it says is 'Steering Column' ????

Stock rack used, however the new positioning on the front subframe means that the rack has moved, which has left a particularly large and awkward hole the try and watertight.

The brackets for mounting the brake/clutch pedal box were fab'd by Zcars as part of the race spec kit.

Dont worry about asking questions, always glad to help if I can.
