Not a particularly exciting update. It's more been a month of getting through wee jobs that need done. Carbon for the switch panel is being cut and will be sorted soon, I pulled the wiper motor and linkages and rear lights out of an old mini I've had for years, gave it all a clean and paint. Saves a few quid and satisfying to see!
This will get mounted on a bracket just above where the cage meets the front subframe, about as close to its original position as possible.
The rear bulkhead is ready for drilling and nutserting to the cage. I'll aim to make this as sealed as possible but once the side panels are in the rest can wait till after it's running.
Nice shiny arrival;
This'll need a bracket made, as will the header tank. Any suggestions on where to fix it welcome. At the moment my plan is a bracket to mount them both behind the passenger seat (engine side of bulkhead) on a bracket coming down from the harness loop bar.
Most pressing job next is sorting what seems to be a common issue.
The bottom UJ catches the brake pedal. Not ideal but I think the best way is to do as cptkirk has and cut where the bolt is and weld it.
Hopefully this week I'll get my box from gonzo which hopefully solves the rear brake issue and allow me to select gears! We seem to be missing a bag of banjos and fittings for the brakes which has led to a fair bit of head scratching. Hopefully enough will be done for the car to go off to PerformanceTek in March so a busy few weeks ahead.
