Havent actually posted in ages, not because i havent been working on the car, its the contrary, ive been there as much as possible evening and weekend and really working my socks off to get it finished before its just too cold to work on it. since my last post ive managed to install the new hardlines up front for the brakes, the new flexis to the calipers. fitted all the braking bits and got the system ready to receive the re-conditioned Master Cylinder.
i should have taken some before pictures of the M/C however here is an after shot
this was an original part which was re-conditioned by a company in england. really happy with how it came out and the turn around was really quick and reasonably priced.
fitted up went in like a dream
ive also ordered all the service bits for the car so i can fill it with nice new fluids before we start it up
note: the oil filter is wrong! ive sent them an email and i am getting a new one soon
slight disaster with the servo the bleed nipple sheeered off inside the body, going to have to drill it out and replace before i can bleed it all.
:'( makes me sad, was so close to getting it done today.
on a positive note, getting closer to a final decision with the center console, and even finished the speaker pods to give me some back pressure on the front mids and to stop any phasing of the speakers.
made from heavy duty cardboard tube and filled with sound insulation to dampen any vibrations
a final shot of the console mocked up.
will probably change the orientation of the ashtray and button holder as there is some depth issues with the ash tray. the whole console will eventually be flocked in black to help it tie in with the interior of the car.
this week: hopefully will get back to the garage and get the pesky broken nipple out and get it fitted back up, a good thing which has come out of this, is it gives me a chance to clean the servos and paint them before they go back in. its just more and more things to do before the january deadline
wish me luck
