Things are starting to happen on the engine front. I wouldn't get too excited though, the finished article is a long way off.

I must admit I have just studied the base of those bores quite extensively.

Final dings being removed from the bodywork before the roof is swapped. Both rear arches have now been rolled.

Not only are they useful as axle stands, but they also supply the connectors and pins for the instrument wiring. I needed some extra contacts to get data in and out of the cluster and the parts are from BMW.



After much searching they can be ordered in one-offs for 40p each from my local Sytner Smile

Yesterday I picked up the new tappet chest which has had the oil baths for the inlet camshaft reprofiled as they were hitting on the camshaft cover. It now has some clearance.








I need to get this deburred and thoroughly cleaned, then it can go in the engine.

Development board wired to boxster instruments to test fuel level, coolant temperature, speed, and RPM circuits. I can test the rescaling of the RPM signal, reading of button presses, outout of vehicle speed, rescaling of the coolant temperature and the reading oil temperature.

First test of the rev counter functions. I'll update this with a better video soon with a voiceover.


Open Youtube Page


The display on the pulse generator is in Hz, to convert to RPM multiply by 20. This is starting off at 2000RPM and going up from there. The scaling is set so that the the steps are 2k rpm up to 4k, then 1k from there. So whereas the original scale is 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7 it is now 0,2,4,5,6,7,8,9. No idea if I will run this sort of scale in the final one or just a normal linear scale. It is very easily setable in the firmware.

When the button is pressed for a short time the rev counter will change to show the peak RPM reading. I'd been playing around with it before so the peak isn't the value shown as I wind it up and then down. I press it again to demonstrate that it isn't reset after reading. The third time I press the button again during the display of the peak value which then resets the peak recall.

I hope that makes sense.

The prototype tappet chest was mostly deburred. Mostly...



As always it pays to check what you have delivered. If you fit it to your engine it is your responsibility.

I have done a better video on the rev counter mods:

And also one on the coolant gauge correction and oil temperature reading

I have started on the interior retrim.











I won't be fitting rear seats so haven't done the cutout for the belts. The muppet skin went on OK, a couple of the tight curved are not quite right, but pretty happy with them overall.

Hat off as always MC,

Alcantara, probably available in green. I bought 2m of it but will definately need more, probably another 2m. It is about £75 a metre but nice stuff. I have cut the parts for the rear door cards and instrument binnacle but they need sewing first.
I stripped and retrimmed one of each interior partto see if it worked, so I need to do the other half now. Leaving the dashboard until last....

Thanks, what type of glue do you use?
Any tips to do this as I’d like to tweak my interior, maybe videos that you found useful that you could point me too?

👍

My plan was to have a go at one half first, then if it works make a video for the second set, when I have a clue what I am doing Very Happy
I'll post details of the glue later and a video when I do the second half .

Thanks to KurlyKris the brake brackets have arrived. Some comoarison shots of the 6 piston modified Cayenne calipers for 350mm disks and the 997 GT3 calipers fir 380mm disks. Both set up to mount on 996 C2 front uprights.









This is the spray adhesive I used for the interior trim.

Minimalist instruments ready for a road test in my C2. I will put them together properly when I have sorted out the two blank warning light transparencies.
The cables on the back are for CAN interface, RS232 output, and a debug header in case I want to run it on the debugger whilst it is in the car. In the final version the debug header will be removed and the other two combined on a connector coming out of the back panel in the centre.





Rapid prototype has been ordered for this. Although we have already decided to change one important aspect of the design. At least I will be able to check the dimensions on the gears and the engine.

I need to chose the colour soon, I was set on Viola Metallic, but having seen a photo of a Rubystone car today I am having second thougts.





I will probably get a sample of both and go from there. Any thoughts/opinions/other ideas?
