Not sure what to do with this subframe yet, think I'll have to weld up the holes:

I used to have the servo only assisting the front with a tandem master cylinder setup which worked great and there was still lots of breaks at the rear but im told that it should go to both front and rear and then use the bias valve just on the rear split. this is the setup I am going for now:

I finished the dash during the winter but some of the vinyl is lifting already so will have re-stick it when the time comes to put it in. I used some cheapo spray adhesive and should have used evostick I think? it might have reacted with the foam underlay.

The naff ignition start button is getting replaced with something more tasteful, maybe a little black switched panel in keeping with works mini style.

I love all the old works style so want to incorporate it in a small panel somehow, maybe like this:

The glue on the dash:

When you re glue it get high temp spray adhesive. Else when the inside of the car gets hot in the summer it will lift/sag etc.

Trim fix is very good.

Loving the amount of pictures you're posting. Gives me real inspiration to crack on with mine. Can I ask as well, did you already know how to weld as some of them are pretty good!

Hi all,

Good news is that I managed to get a good few days of stunning weather last week for blasting. Andrew behind Dennings Cars in Tallaght took the job on and cant believe what an amazing job he did. Andrew - 085 811 9733

And then straight into Liam Denning and on with the Rustbuster Epoxy Mastic and the Custom Epoxy 421. Products went on like dream apparently, Epoxy Mastic takes a good bit of time compared to the 421. It can be thinned up to 15% for spraying and used a 1.8 tip. More pics of finish to follow. The Mastic is a much better finish than I thought it would be as I thought it would be rougher. It has hardened like rock!
