Waiting on subframe reinforcement plates to come from turner motorsport, get a lad down then to decat the exhaust and weld in the plates too, better drop the petrol tank before that though.
So how she’s sitting at the minute;
Picked up few more bits.
Subframe reinforcement plates;
TRS Tow straps;
New K&N Filter and bits to fit it.
And it fitted;
Myself and the misses fitted the hydro in position Thursday night, hydro is bolted to angle, angle is bolted through the tunnel and the other plate is on the inside of the tunnel to spread the pressure, all lock nuts used, feels very sturdy so we’ll see how it works out.
And the hydro in place;
Strut braces are no longer green…
Now for some nasty pics… rust, rust and more rust.
Subframe mounting points;
After sand blasting and priming;
Also got the exhaust silencers and cats removed and straight pipes made up, fitted them tonight and what a noise, ha ha, loved it, it’ll not be as bad when the muffler is back on.
So next I’ll be fitting the seats hopefully, Monday I’m getting the steering knuckles cut back and I need to get a section of the subframe plated, get the reinforcement plates welded and get the rear back together again.
Find a place to let rip and get a bit of practice before I hit the track.
So I got the knuckles cut back, before and after pics below;
So I stuck on the wheels the lock has definitely improved, 195/50/R15.
So finally got it on the road today for a bit of run….happy out.
Few things that were done since the last update.
