So.. a casual 67hours at work this week meant not much time for the car.. but after a sunday morning double time stint i popped down the social club for some tinkering..

Pulled up a rug, mother made me a coffee and i set about the discs:






Resulting in:





I did also fit up the harness shoulder straps according to:




And started fitting the gearshift linkages thru the bulkhead

Alright peeps...

So.. decided to give the steering rack a bit of a spruce up.. it was stripped/blasted/powdercoated and then just pop it all together..

Yeah... because its always that easy isnt it!?!

The needle bearing was a bit notchy (knackered) so i popped up to the suppliers only to be told they were unavailable.. a bit of head scratching and we decided the french were being typically awkward in using a custom bearing and to drop down on the OD to the nearest std size and i'd machine a sleeve to hold it in place:









Once that was all done I had a shiny rack:



So.. the pedalbox went in.. the rack went on and i started on the steering arms...

Aaaaaand another issue arose:

Ya see these little rod end spacers:



I found 3..

Guess how many i needed??

Yesssssss 4.. thats right!!!

So, after much swearing and cursing i decided to make 1... some bar was thriwn in the lathe and i fired up the Ateam music...



And just like Hannibal and the boys... i love it when a plan comes together!!:



Colomn was bolted up.. arms fitted.. we had steering!!







I did start getting pedals attatched but was running out of time and correct sized bolts..

Alright folks... how are you all???

Right, been a bit busy recently... i could give you a list of excuses but basically... i dont have to explain myself to you lot

First up, started a new engine mount, but i'll show you more of that when i get the rest finished....






Dragged the gearbox outside for some TLC in the sun and various bits of the engine got plated/anodised/vapour blasted....








So we had them bits... and an empty engine bay....





I think you can tell the next stage.....
