This is how Custom Cages recommend fitting the main loop

Image

It worked fairly well. It was a pain in the butt to get it back into place after welding the roof pieces though. Anyway -

Couple of evenings later...

This is the bulkhead and front suspension tower if you can't get your head around the angle ;)

Just waiting for the last images to back up from my phone :)

And there they are. The last couple of pics of front triangulation bracing :)

Image

Image

Just got the near side triangulation pieces to go in and then weld up the holes. A few more holes to fill in the bulk head and the floor (I found one rust hole underneath some seam sealer!) and I can paint the inside :D

Long time since last update, sorry The Interceptor, I shall try harder in future...

A photo montage to catch up a bit -

Image

Image

While I had the car upside down I decided to make a couple of axle stand points. (Imagine the pic upside down ;) )

Image

Image

I forgot to take pics of the rear underside after I'd done the cleaning up, so we jump to some sticking bits in. I'm needing the steering wheel and pedals in so I can work out where to put the seat.

Looking great man, you've put a lot of work in so far!! How's the progress coming on at the moment?

I agree that the sealant really is a nightmare for welding! What are your engine plans?

In what available time I have (not much) I'm just checking the engine over. It's the same engine that was in Daz...

Frequency of updates is appalling :(

I've had so little time to do much by the looks of it. I have managed to do some little bits though. I've started looking at doing the hydraulic clutch conversion on the standard cable clutch gearbox. It's been a bit fiddly as the master cylinder wants to foul part of the roll cage. Once I've got that sorted I can get on with a big brake improvement...

Image

It means I can get rid of all the cross bulkhead linkage and servo :) It frees up a load of space under the bonnet. I need to get some more welding done though, no major problems.

Talking of welding, I'm removing the boot floor to recess in the alloy race fuel tank. I'm toying with various ideas, so will update later.

So, one year ago, I had some time free. I did, in fact, make a start on the brake bias pedal box. It was some time after doing this -

Image

that I realised that this kit is designed to fit on the original mounting point of the brake servo :oops: Ah well, I was thinking about moving it all in front of the driver's seat anyway :lol:

I made a frame for the pedal box to bolt to.

Image

Image

Then put a skin over,

Image

Image

Image

All trial fitted and hydraulically tested so I just need to strip it down and make it more presentable.

The engine will be coming back out for a rebuild as it's been so long since it ran so I'll get decent access, and all the clearances have been checked.
