The car is getting closer and closer to being able to be driven, but the closer i get the more i see there is to do! this weekend i managed to fit some important bits and address some of the questionable wiring from the previous owners.
quick pic of it up on the stands, really nice to have the car in the garage and i can work on it in the dry!
so the first job was to replace the horrible track rods and center section. i didnt get a picture of the before but i removed the whole steering assembly including the box and gave it all a good clean up before refit.
going to be nice to have full adjustment on the tracking finally and be able to get it to track in a straight line finally!
i have a before picture of the wiring we found under the dash ! :/ see below if you dare
crazy amounts of rubbish! not even sure what the previous owner was trying to achieve but it wasnt working for me either way.. time to strip it all back to the essentials. this job took me much longer than i wanted but i needed to make sure it was correct. pretty happy with the results.
everything nice and tidy, everything that wasnt needed was removed and all the connections checked and headshrinked to protect them.
fitted the pedal box back in aswell (see above photo) this includes the cleaned and new sealed clutch slave, just waiting for the brake master!
i sent the hubs off to my man big tony he helped me out massivly and pressed the new longer studs in for me! as im running these magnesium wheels, the face of them is much deeper than usual and the offset means i needed to press a super long stud in, room for spacers and safely being able to tighten the lugs up.
rebuilt the hubs (excuse the overspray on the coilovers.. i need to get some thinners and remove this.
cheeky test fit.. think its gonna look real smart when its rollin'.
james and dad helped me out over the past few weekends, james's old man came down and took a few photos of the boys at work
if youre wondering where i am.. im underneath the car trying to get things off or put something on! hahah
next job: get the windows fitted and start fitting up the new carpets and seats!
