Wim je peux acheter des choses essentiellement à partir de là, mais sur une voiture cas brut matériaux coût n'a pas un original 100 millions le concessionnaire va probablement coûter plus cher je pense. Si vous ne pouvez pas le toucher ou le faire savoir.

23 May

Spent all of yesterday in the garage, moved the seats up into the attic along with the nose cone which has been in my way for a while now, did it all while Nicky was taking No. 1 daughter to ballet!

Then spent all day drilling 329 holes in the floor and chassis, OMG I think I have got vibration white finger! Once I had drilled all the holes I then had to de-burr both sides of the ally floor. It is all done now the floor is ready to stick and rivet in once I have got the head light mounts finished and the chassis painted.

A little note on drill bits, I always used standard HSS drill bits but when I started drilling holes for the floor two or three weeks ago I snapped two 3.2mm drill bits after doing 10 holes each. So I forked out on some 3.2mm Cobalt drill bits on line, they were not too expensive under £20 for ten but one drill bit did all the holes and shows no signs of getting blunt. Worth the investment.

No pictures this week as it would just be the same sheet of aluminium you have seen before with a hole every 30mm!

Cheers Ginge

1 June

Well I can chalk up another 7hrs on the build; it was a good bank holiday Monday.

I started by fabricating the head light mounts, these are made from scratch two lengths of tube left over from my roll bar rear stays and some 5mm plate.

I used 5mm plate as I wanted to have enough material to create a nice radius. Fabrication eat into the build time as it is quite time consuming making four round pieces of steal, welded them on top and bottom of the tube then drilled a hole in one end of each for the head light bolt then used a hole cutter to make a big enough hole for the socket that is required to do the nut up. Finally hacked away at the oval that was attached to the chassis to allow the new end piece to fit nicely.

They have turned out as I expected which is nice, and like all the small components I have attached to the chassis recently they are man enough to jack the chassis up on!


I then spent ages cleaning up the chassis back to the bulk head, as it where, ready for the application of some paint, between coats I set to re-assembling the front up rights, the bearings I got had two nuts in each box, seems a little bit of a waste but saves them stocking left and right I suppose. Really glad I had the Haynes manual for the Sierra as I confused myself trying to work out how the bearings went back in. Glaringly obvious when you look at the exploded diagram!

Last two pictures are of the front 1/3 of the chassis primed and the uprights which are getting the odd coat whenever I pop in the garage for a smoke.

Next weekend I must press on with chassis painting and the electrolysis process.

Cheers Ginge

Looking really smart Ginge

Just one point if I may?

what are you doing with the passenger footwell ? what i mean is the bulkhead between passengers feet & the engine bay,
As this isn,t mentioned in the book, I welded in a 3mm plate to create a bulkhead, also used 3mm plate for CP15 & 16.....

Just a thought before you fully paint the chassis

cheers
