That looks great. Remember lusting after one of these for years and coming close a couple of times. Never got there in the end.

Great work Trev. Dropping the SSK and Golden Rod to my Indy tomorrow. Engine out on table at the min replacing all the usual stuff for a 100k miler. Your thread has got me excited again.

Hi Baz, does that mean full rebuild or just reseal and all the outer bits?, I'm assuming the latter. Good idea and should see you right for another 50 thou or so, good call on the SSK and Goldenrod. I've tried to keep my car pretty stock but the shift & steering is something I feel goes an long way toward the driving experience, so I try and sharpen it up in these area's. I chose the firmer RS rear subframe bushes, RSR's, Koni/M033, SSK/Goldenrod, C4 engine mounts, otherwise my car is stock, as it was always going to be a road car it fits nicely into how I would like it to drive.

If I was doing as RS rep (ala Endoman) then I would certainly be looking at many more upgrades.

Guys when is this trackday?, I'll get across for this for a mill around the pits and catch-up with you guys.

I'll bring my helmet just in case someone takes pitty on me and would like to give me a ride, I love Oulton, done many laps.

@endoman See you there to catch up so Thumb

Trev,

Mine's a bit of a halfbreed of sorts Very Happy . The previous owner (before Ian) had it set up as a near enough track demon. I kept it that way but the last few years, apart from Oulton Park and the odd few track days over here, it has seen very little use. I've wanted it as the happy of the 2 mediums, road and the odd track day. My Indy has been scolding me for its lack of use over the past 4 years(mainly because of our prohibitive tax system here on cars), and has warned me it needs to be used more. I'm literally just back from him this afternoon and he has informed me the engine is coming out this week as he says its easier to fix the oil leak and replace the various pipes, hoses and anything else that needs to be replaced. The SSK and Golden Rod is p1ss easy once the engine has been dropped. I'll get my pics up as he sends them to me.

The track day is Friday the 8th of March. You're more than welcome to come out with me, I'm no track pro though Laughing .

Baz

Camel - Did you get the roof off ok? Did you replace the black trims that run against the glass? I'm midway through getting the roof off and bedating whether the to take the main sliding window out before I remove the roof or to try once it's out.

Hi there, yes I got the roof off, bit of a struggle and you need the right kit. Have you got the appropriate part of the workshop manual?, it goes through the removal process in detail.

You've got to be super careful esp if you're keeping the rear quarters (mine were being replaced so not such as issue for me).

You will need to remove the big centre glass first which is easy enough.

Yes I replaced the two black plastic strips that run down either side, that also is not an easy job. In fact I have a pair up for sale if you're interested. I replaced mine with new but to be honest I could have easily got away with not doing.

I replaced every seal on the Targa roof, what is it that you're trying to fix?, let me know if I can help in any way, it's a tough process and a steep learning curve but kudos for having a go, most don't.

Trev,

Thanks for the reply, my car is going to get a full respray and the front wind deflector wasn't working correctly....the overall quote to remove repair and respray seemed a lot of cash.

I'm reasonably handy so thought I'd try and fix the deflector, which I managed to do by removing the mechanical lifter mech with the roof in situ....this has given the confidence to get the roof off which is required to fix rust around top of a pillar and some where targa roof meets body on rear quarter.

So I need to get the black trim out that runs next to the glass, can you pull it out and reinsert without having to remove the bonded rear screen?

I'll remove the top panel, and all the bolts are off the roof to body mounts and I've cut round the roof join with a multicutter as per the workshop removal instruction. I'm now about to use windscreen removal wire to cut through the sealant I cant get to with multi cutter and hopefully the roof should come off?

I want to replace the drive cables, should the roof be in closed position, with glass out, to do this? Are there instructions available on how to replace these?

Well if you're removing the roof it's an ideal opportunity to sort everything out, you'll want to replace most of the seals in the roof, the large one that runs along the top of the windscreen, all the seals around the moving glass, etc etc.

Yes you can slide the cover strips out without removing the rear screen but it is tight, you might want to purchase a trestle table to put the roof on when removed, it's bulky and heavy and you want to be very careful with it.

Also ensure you clean and lube it appropriately, the manual should tell you how to replace the drive cables, if you can't find it let me know and I'll see what I have on that topic.

Pls take some pics and post as you go.
