Cheers John,

I know where there is a stream that could do with a shopping trolley removing from it. Doing my public service and all that.

Andy,

I think the amount of stuff we got for our £150 is fantastic. There are people selling 1.8 CVH engines on the bay for £500!

Cheers Ginge

My first donor was free + it had 3/4 of a tank of fuel

On the downside...............I only found £1.15p in loose change

That looks the same as my sierra did, same colour/engine/age

Mine ran sweet as a nut so felt guilty for the first 5mins of ripping it to pieces systematically ripped to bits of course

If you are using the loom make a good job of labelling it and storing it for when you need it. I spent a full day carefully removing the whole thing in one piece and very neatly labelling it.

I have just recently stripped the loom down and got it in the roadster at the weekend, the labels really helped make sense of it quickly

Hi Ginge, was looking at your roll bar and suspension mount assembly and had a thought. For those nuts there and also for lower harness mounts would be very comfortable to use special weld nuts. They just need a bit larger hole but are self centering and easy to fixate. Here's a linkey with drawing and dimensional table http://www.deepri.com/din_specificat...Weld-Nuts.html. I design conveyors every day and we use them a lot. Don't know how available those are over you, but should be.

Cool Weld nuts

I used weld nuts on mine .......... Mind you, only because I had them on my shelf

They are quite usefull though, less likely to pull when being welded & keep nice n square

I am not quite sure what I did today but it defiantly wasn’t work on the roadster and the strip light in the garage blew!

09 Dec 09

I finished of the modified rear end and shaped the bar that the upper seat belt inserts go into, which is what the following picture is showing, also it shows my thoughts for the roll bar stays.

[IMG][/IMG]

I am thinking of running them from roll bar right down to the bottom of the rear end. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

My 6 year old James took the picture and it doesn’t look to bad, I might employ him when it comes to documenting the Sierra strip, as my wife has already said she is not spending a day in the cold garage!

Looking good ginge.

I did something very similar with my rollbar, except the rear stays were a bit more inboard than where you are holding them.

Have a look at the pic I put up in a previous post.
