Great progress being made there.

How did all the seals look coming out the master cylinder, did they all show signs of wear?


Cheers. Hated doing the paint but it's looking good!

Clearly there's been a leak at some point. The seals all looked 100% fine when I removed them. There wasn't any sign of fluid loss and brakes have been perfect since I've had the car.
As everything was off and I had easy access I thought it was silly not to replace the seals for £10.

Thanks pugfrank. Good to know it's being read and enjoyed Thumbs up

The paint I'd ordered for the engine bay arrived a couple of days ago. In with the order was some stonechip to do the wheel arches and lower section of the engine bay. You can see the slightly darker grey colour in the engine bay here.




Unfortunately, rain has stopped play so doing any more painting is on hold for now Thumbs down

Whilst I'm waiting I've been labeling the brake lines from the engine bay with a new toy that Toolstation were doing for half price. I'd had everything labeled with masking tape but it kept smudging and I had to redo it. I've also started labeling the wiring loom(s).

Ah cheers. I can see that the thread is being viewed but it's nice to receive some comments!

I dodged the showers this morning to get a couple of jobs done; sadly too windy for paint!
I decided to take the o/s wing off to make painting easier and to see how the body was faring under there. All pretty tidy aside from the charcoal canister bracket but that wasn't a surprise. Not sure why I'd put the bumper back on Dunno



I'd had my suspicions that the o/s wing wasn't the original and I was right. Whoever replaced it removed one of the rivets but left the second in the panel Dunno . At least the replacement panel was an OEM one.



Whilst the wing was off I thought I'd realign the door as access is a bit easier. The door always took a couple pulls on the handle to get it open because it was off so it's nice to have it opening freely and lined-up properly.






I'd removed the rack just to make the bay a bit clearer for the tidy-up. That's had a good scrub (still looks dirty) and some new rubber bits.
The o/s gator had dissolved because of the amount of brake fluid I'd spilt when removing the lines for the bulkhead repair and the ram boot was missing (surprise). Also needed a new TRE after I mangled the thread on the one that was fitted (done about 2K miles on that one Roll eyes )







Need to source a clip for the small end of the rack gator as the one supplied definitely wasn't going over the track-rod! Ram boot is made from an old bike inner tube.


Next update should be for a painted engine bay.

Inner tube boot didn't last long? I'll go with it for now, something's better than nothing Thumbs up


I was having a bit of a nightmare with the paint in the engine bay. I don't think a 25L compressor and a touch-up gun really cut it for this amount of surface to cover. The setup just wasn't delivering enough paint. I'd kind of given up and left the inner wings with only a small amount of paint on them, you can see they look dull compared to the rest.



Anyway, I decided to give it another go this morning. Fiddled a bit with the various knobs on the gun and I've got enough coverage now I think. Used up what paint I had left just going over other bits etc. Job done. Certainly not perfect but I was more after protection than a show winning finish. Most of it's hidden anyway.

Thanks for all the positive comments Thumbs up . Looking forward to getting it back on the road although I'm a way off yet.

I've been thinking about what to do with this. There was no doubt that it was going to get repaired properly just at which point in the reassembly.



That area of rust came to light after I'd got home from having the bulkhead repair done. I hadn't fully removed the sound deadening only pulled it over so that the work could be done on the passenger side of the bulkhead. This patch is on the driver side and the peg supports the 'pedal panel' whilst you put the bolts in from the engine bay side.

This is the head of the peg in the wheel well.



The car now needs to be mobile enough to get it on a trailer and down to Sean to sort out. Time to bolt on the freshly powder coated subframe...



... with the refreshed subframe cups...



The o/s wishbone needed new front bushes. It had already had a P-bush and ball joint but the front bushes were fine at that time. Wishbone got a wire brushing, some Hydrox 80 and a coat of gloss black. It now matches the all new TRW one on the n/s.



And all fitted up.



I'd soaked the BJ heat shields in some citric acid and given them a coat of high-temp silver.

Steering rack bolted on along with strut and hub assembly and all linked up. Nice to see it back on all 4 wheels!

Along with a load of other bits I had the 'pedal panel' powder coated. That's been put back on along with the steering column and wheel etc so the car is now maneuverable. Just need to arrange a date and time to get it looked at.



Whilst the engine's out I'm making sure that's as tidy as it can be. Having pulled the box off I could see that there was some oil evident. Now, I'm 99% certain that this is gear oil from when the n/s diff seal wasn't installed completely straight, it certainly smells of gear oil.



However, it's going to be much easier to do the main seal and hockey sticks whilst the engine's out. Also, provided the latest welding job doesn't cost too much, I'm keen on fitting a lightweight flywheel and I wouldn't want that piece of art getting covered in oil!

Great progress Tom. Lovely to see the new subframe going in on new cups too! I'm going to do a similar front end refresh shortly
