A fair amount achieved on Saturday mark.
Not the easiest job getting the water bottle fitted though mark..  not standard and completely different location, but hats off to you, your design and bracket making certainly worked 👍🏻

Collected the calipers from being painted. Must admit look better than the previous anodised colour. Just the transfers to fit

Fantastic Mark

They look so much better than before

I know it wasn’t a cheap addition to get them repainted, but worth every penny in my opinion.

Transfers fitted to calipers and dynomat completed. Also engine tested for clearance.

The disc assembly and the engine look amazing,  where did you get the Ferrari filler caps.

However I don’t like the pattern on the carpets and door cards.  They’re a bit repetitive.
Not all problems can be solved with gaffer tape.  For those there is WD40.
Not even gaffer tape can fix stupid, but it can mask the sound.

If you can’t buy it or steal it you have to make it.

Lee.  Real caps, two of them.  Aren’t they a bit expensive, I’ve heard that they are about £750 each new although they are on fleebay at £100 - £300 each.

I’ve looked at pictures of the California engine and luckily I don’t need those.  Makes sense 'cos the engine is under the bonnet not on display.

Yep they are genuine caps  8) As with all the genuine parts I’ve got on the car I have been able to get them at a really good price and I didn’t pay anything near those prices mentioned. To be honest a majority of the time it costs more to try and replicate correctly than to get the genuine parts.

With the driveshafts positioned in the gearbox and in the new hubs it now shows how much they have to be extended. A set have been mocked up and sent away to be made and hardened.

Won’t be stonleigh this year Steve, too much of a rush. We have been sorting lots of items needed, upgraded fuel pump as standard pressure not enough for new engine,  braided fuel lines etc etc. Clutch is now sorted, brakes just need braided fuel lines measured and ordering and Barry working on the conversion for the throttle set up. Also the gear selector is completed and back from the powder coaters. The boost pipes are being tig welded this week. The rear cage was removed for welding up and powder coating. Also the adjustable exhaust hangers work brilliantly which make it so easy to line up the tips.

These are the things that take time. The gear linkage parts all being made from scratch at the engineers. This has been designed to work on the mr2 cables to the Ford gearbox. All rose jointed and fully adjustable. Next was the intercooler. I found a supplier selling new genuine Ford ones for £60 so couldn’t say no. I have cut off the brackets that are not needed. Spent the day checking the welds on the boost pipes as they came back from the welders. Pressured up to 40 psi which is so overkill but want to ensure no leaks. These are now ready for ceramic coating and hopefully back next weekend.
