Started to plan out the pipework to the rear today, and rememberd reading someones comments on the handbrake cables, so dug them out and had a look at their proximity to my pipes. Had to start rethinking a little.

Also Started looking at my bonnet latches again as last time I tried fitting them it was a bit of a failure and I gave up.

And started to plan the dash a bit more...

So no real progress but planning should reduce frustrations in the future.

Trying to get space in the garage, sold my 2 V6 Type 9's which made some impact. But the 2 DOHC's, Zetec, 12V V6 and 24V V6, Spare 4pot type 9, 2 spare 4x4 MT75 and RWD MT75 are just the tip of the tidy up iceberg!!

There's a bike that belongs to my Brother in law in the way too... That's there at least till may when he comes back from NZ.


I am considering ideas to re-route the Pipes over the handbrake cable bracket rather than under. The space on the tunnel is dead there so going upwards may be easier. I will have a think.

My problem with my bonnet latches was attaching them securely , but needing to be able to take them off again to get the side panels of for final chassis prep. The latch needs one mounting where the top rail is and that became an issue.. I have a plan with a long bolt now.

I fired up my Acewell dash and put the magnet on a extension bar in my pillar drill, simulated the speedo input. Fortunatly my dash displays speed all the time so no need to fudge around with disabling the mode button. Need to order some switches from SVC, which I can hopefully commit to later this week.

And Finish up the water system that I started.

Oooohh..

4 out of 4 bonet catches on. May need some fettling to get them tighter...


And I have started looking at the column bearing, need to bash out the old style mount. The new bearing has been tested in place and looks good.

Try and get a few pics later tonight has been a very long time since a decent shot has been taken.

Fired her up always sounds good even for a 1.8CVH

then bashed off the old column bearing mount, just need to grind down the old welds and then fit up the new bearing.

Sold a 2.0DOHC so there is a little more space to play with in the garage. It's just not very tidy.

Column bearing is now in place, couple of little mits to tidy on it but it's going to be much better than the sierra item.

Then got distracted by firing up the 24V sierra.

And then set about removing the front suspension from the XR4x4 in order to get ready for removing that cars engine and starting the repair work on the shell. Cut out a long bit of rotten sill.


3 Projects, time share, slow progress.

Very Very Slowly.

Usual thing, get al the heavy big jobs done and then slow right down on the small things.

24V sierra is 12 Years Off road.
