Forgive me for asking this if you have already told us but are you fitting some sort of body kit? GT3 or ducktail?


If you have a look at the first page of the build you will see that the car was originally running an aerokit, so very similar to the one which was on the GT3 (I am led to believe the GT3 kit is a copy of the Carrera aerokit). I'll be keeping the front and rear bumpers and side skirts but I'm planning on going a little more dramatic on the rear wing, something more 'cup' like.

Ah yes of course. It's been a while since I looked at the early pages.

I see you removed the foam insulation from the rear around the rear seat belt mounts. I don't suppose you still have the passenger side and want to get rid of it?

Doing a few little jobs before the engine is sealed up ready to go back in the car. IMS cover seal and o-ring. What a pain getting the o-ring out is!!

Cover has been popped off the bearing, it spins very smoothly and silently, all looking good so I'll be leaving well alone.

Scavenge pump and camshaft end covers refitted on the engine. Also refitted spark plug tubes ready to fit the coils. Need to see if I have 6 which aren't cracked. Otherwise I'll replace them.

A few parts back from the trimmers. I did try to do these mysefl and they looked like a right dog's breakfast so I have decided to stick to doing very simple interior panels.

It was done at a place called Car and Coach Trimmers in Colwick, Nottingham.

One of the jobs I have done over the last month or two was removing and refitting one of the heads, here is a guide as to what was involved.

One of the bolts which holds the heat shields on has a stripped thread, so that was tapped out to the next size up to fit a bigger bolt. I tried to use a helicoil but the thread was so messed up that I just couldn't get it to go in.

Fitted and tested the towel rail, along with both coil covers after cleaning up, checking, and fitting coils. Getting towards the stage where I need to think what exhaust to run next. I have a full Top Gear system but wouldn't mind testing the manifolds on the dyno, so might refit the standard manifolds.

Both sills and areas around the inside of the rear arches have been injected with ML penetrating wax. It isn't easy to see where it has been applied by taking photos, but from what was coming out at the bottom of the sills I'm assuming that I have good coverage.

I'm trying to do more on video, so I knocked up a quick video on where I'm up to with the project.
