I managed to get a bit of time to spend on the car this weekend. I got the steering column support frame in place, as well as CP16 and the uprated bearing. I've bolted the bearing straight to CP16 and the column feels rock solid. I also got the front assembled with dummy shocks to help me move it around.
I then turned my efforts to the engine, and sorted out the mounts. I have them in the zetec positions on the cvh because I plan to swap it over post test. This also means I can use the manifold I have that would occupy the same space as the usual cvh mount.
