Hi all

So i have started to cut out the bulkhead, so i can make a new miglia style bulkhead

Posted Image

Next I will start to make a template for the new bulkhead :crazy:

Any one know where i can get hold of new bushes/mounts for a rear antirollbar, i have been told it's a janspeed antirollbar

Posted Image

And check this out, what the hell are these bolts sticking out of the head (next to the spark plugs)??

Posted Image

Posted Image

oh and some new bits ;)

Cheers

ARB bushes are possibly the same as engine steady bushes.

The bolts in the head are blocking up ports for an emmissions reduction system that pushed air in to the combustion chamber. You don't see those heads often (not that they are anything special in terms of performance).

Forgot to upload the photos so il get them later but from the front edge of the bulkhead in front of the tower bolts is about 430mm to the back of the box/inside of the dash and from the carb clearance channel in the centre is about 380 or so.

Hope that helps,Ross.

Hi Tim1970

Not much has happened of late, I do now have the multi-point rollcage to fit and I just need to remove some bracing that was welded in and I have a very good mate who will make my custom full length air box, I also picked up a nice dash as well cheers Lewis.

I have also received in the post two large orders from minispares and Peterlloyd rally, we are talking:- yellow spot suspension cones, uprated drive flanges, uprated steering arms, carbon metalic pads, seals and S.S brake pistons, revotec electric fan kit, uprated lower suspension bolts, lowered top shocker mounts, 2x Corbeau sprint seats, nicky grist 4 point harnesses, side alloy seat mounts, 2.0ltr hand held fire extinguisher and 2.25ltr plumbed fire extinguisher, I think thats about it :dontgetit:

I will be at my garage tonight so I will take some pictures.

Nexted on the order list a ETB Digidash, Longacre switch panels, ETB circut breakers, alloy rad, spax motorsport shocks, revotec hoses, heated front screen.

Things are going to shift into high gear now.

cheers

Kevin

Hi guys

I did a dry run of fitting the roll cage, oh man I had no idea how much work was involved in fitting a multi-point roll cage. Has any one got any advice or things to watch out for when fitting.

Any way here are some pictures,

Hello all

Should be doing some more work over the next fews days. I think I will go and purchase a Mig welder as well...

I have also ordered some more bits today from MiniSport and Rallynuts:-

Monte Carlo heated front screen, grooved hi-spec cooperS discs, sportx rally exhaust system, weld in OMP seat mounts, OMP spare wheel holder, ring eye bolts and FIA spec plates for the 4 point harnesses.

So I will mock up the rest of the rollcage and get that ready to weld in the plates and the other multi-point sections, then I should be ok to get the seats in to get the seat mounts welded in >_<

Cheers

Kevin

hi lovely car its so nice and oldschool! the different bulkhead looks like an interesting idea i've never seen that before! how does this affect the dash? does it bring the bulkhead out as far as the dash rail? would you still be able to fit clocks to the dash rail? keep up the good work ;)
