Well, finally back from the states.... Only for a week though! Spent the day tidying the garage out as everything stock piled on top of the car!
Hopefully I will get one day to spend on it.
Driving up the motorway yesterday with the sun beaming, watching a nice little train of 7's definitely got me motivated to own a completed car. Need to pull my finger out or find a builder!
Glad you getting motivated again I am home thurdsay onwards this week if you wanna come get your bits
hope you have got space for an engine:D :D :D :D
Well hoorah, I finally managed to get a few hours on the build today.
Got the engine back with modified sump and bearing overhaul (credit to Kev), stripped it down for a good clean and paint.
Started to mock the gearbox and engine for mounting - nightmare as expected. Luckily there is a guy who lives not so far from me who could offer some advice. :D
So after some modification managed to get the box roughly in position and started to line up engine.
Previously I had a Zetec and type 9 mounted but the chassis plates for mounting were nowhere near.
But it has been quite an enjoyable day to be fair, hopefully get another couple of hours tomorrow.
Next steps: mount new chassis plates, fabricate engine / box mounts and install brake/fuel pipes.
On another plus side - I finally got the car rolling and pushed it in and out of the garage!!! (Can I call it a car yet?)
