  1. I was considering adding traction control as an upgrade at some point so a T3 part to run a sensor on the front would be useful.
  2. Nicely designed. I am understanding this right? They are straight pipes when the valve is open but with it closed the exhaust is forced to go through a double pass muffler?
  3. Lastly it was on to the fan box. This was looking a bit sorry for itself. Took it apart: I cleaned all the parts up and removed all the old foam which had turned to powder Sent some parts for blasting Primed them: Sprayed them, wasn't easy as the one on the right has lots of brackets, gaps, internal parts, edges and so on which all needed to be properly coated. Also for larger jobs like this I really need to get an air/water separator. A 300L compressor was planned as part of my garage extension but that hasn't happened yet so still working from a small one. Started reassembly: All back together and with the foam all replaced and the heater core flushed it should operate better than before. They definitely don't look >40 years old now.
  4. Apologies for the large photos, I have ajusted my settings for future uploads. Next I turned my attention to the heater box: Radiator was looking a bit rusty and the foam around the core had disintegrated
  5. Apologies for the photo sizing for the next few posts, I have now adjusted it for future posts. So, since I can't help with the body restoration (still waiting to get blasted anyhow) I've been doing what I can with the parts I have with me. Starting with the starter: Then the propshaft, I thought this was going to be an easy job, but there was rust under the paint so I had to take it all back to bare metal: Thottle Pedal. Unlike the other items I decided to have this one powedercoated. Going to be updating to this Honda wiper motor as the original one is a bit lame: I'm not putting something looking like that in my restored car though. Thats better: Some parts only needed a clean:
  6. Thats a nice idea. Just wanted to wish you good luck.
  7. Have to agree with that. If I was doing my build now I'd definitely run a PDM. As it is I am considering re doing the interior and accessory fuse box with a PDM 15, just not sure if its worth it for just that when the main ECU and engine parts wont be using it. I do not wish to re do my mil spec interior harness for the ECU because its too expensive. You also made me think I too should install a circuit breaker by the battery.
  8. Nice work so far, looms like your getting there, will keep a watch on how this turns out.
  9. The vapour blasting looks good, will try and find somewhere to do mine. And then possibly a thin coat of lacquer.
  10. I will be re-making my rear interior wiring harness and tidying up the front one. Trying to decide if its worth the huge amount of money to upgrade to a PDM such as the ECU Master PMU 16. Does anyone have advice/opinions on this?
  11. Stripped and mounted to a trolley:Most of this lot won't be going back on. It will look a whole lot nice afterwards. Finned diff, adjustable arms, billet drop mounts and dogbone and the moustache bar and driveshafts will be refreshed. Test fitting the super light wings, these things way nothing, I want to reinforce them a bit so they will end up slightly heavier but will still be a decent weight saving over stock, coupled with the dry carbon bonnet and that should save about 16kg from the front end, possibly more. And one thing I messed up on during engine bay resto, didn't remove the bonnet hinge mounts and this was underneath. You learn from your mistake, not making any mistakes like that this time, everything has come off.
