Engine primed ready for the painting which never took place:
New high 'power' battery - old one couldnt turn over the high compression of the new engine
My half created dashboard - carbon fibre switch panel with lots of switches
That white material you see was necessary because there was strength needed to hold the dials in place, the carbon
was simply not strong enough. Its a type of ultra lightweight plastic far stronger than carbon fibre
Note the paper tissue catching the oil leak from pressure gauge
Temporarily mounted rev counter:
No windscreen wipers - motor switch blown
Buckets and harnesses required!
Number 3 also requirement
Those pics were taken for an agreed valuation, for insurance
There have been many things undocumented by pictures such as - entire suspension rebuild, replacing dampers and fitting hi-los with new cones all round, stronger tie rods
Replaced entire rear drum brake assemblies
Stripped car bare - literally every tiny unneccessary part has gone - headlining included, sun visors etc. No part left!
(highly inspired by MOWOG i must admit)
Alloy subframe mounts fitted, WnP arches, poly bushes everywhere..
