Update time again.

Met Ben (6waysforward) yesterday when he came round to weld up the roll cage plates.
Big thanks to him for coming round.

He managed to get 3 of the 6 plates welded in before we ran out of time (and gas and wire lol) so the cage is not yet in the car Sad




The 3 plates that he did weld in though I have wire brushed and primed up now, so we are halfway there with that.

I finished the wiring for the switches and gauge this morning (nothing major, just a bit of splicing) and got all the centre panel bolted in.




Put the drivers bucket back in, and a steering wheel and drivers seatbelt and finally took it out for a drive this afternoon.

Beastly above 3.5k is all I can say. Hav'nt really pushed it tbh as im not sure if the charger sort of needs a bit of a break in period, so im keeping it under 3k mostly, with the odd blip but it sure did suprise me how quickly the numbers go up once you let the revs fly!

A quick fiddle with some bits once I got home (straighten steering wheel, inflate front tyres, cable tie boot shut to stop it opening under braking Roll eyes )and I am set to bring it to the Ace tomorrow Big grin

Think the tracking needs looking at tbh, but that will have to wait until monday week, and there are a few more little bits for me to sort out that im not happy with, but im just happy it all ran first time (engine and wiring)

Ill try and get some pics up this week, but I may not get time until I get home from the BGP next week.

Now with legal numberplate Sad

Awesome!

I bet its a great feeling taking it out for the first time.

Good in the sense that you are finally driving a s/c 6 but nervously listening out for odd noises etc......well thats the way i would be anyway!

I wouldn't hear any little odd engine noises over the general noise of the car anyway. Need to get rid of some of the holes in the bulkhead and floorpan to stop some wind noise!

f00king ace on track mate, realistically, its a bit harsh for the road. Can feel every single lump and bump in the road.

Remaining 3 roll cage plates have been welded into the car now and interior has had a lick of paint. Still needs touching up in a few places, but its looking a lot better now.

All the holes in the bulkhead, floorpan, and rear arches have now been blocked up with some aluminium and sikaflex (magic stuff!) so its now a bit quieter in the car (and dryer hopefully too!)

My DIY boost pipe has been a failure. Managed to get 250 miles out of it before it became totally useless, but im sure that could be extended if you keep off the high revs and are using the car on a cooler day, so it could still be an ideal cheap solution for people looking to get the car running temporarily to get it to a garage to make up the alloy hard piped boost pipework.

Just a shame mine had to give up on the Pugrun, but I suppose atleast I was a lot closer to Lynx then I would normally be!

Hopefully Nick will be able to turn around the pipework fairly swiftly for me so I can get the car back. Will be taking it straight in to H&S for the exhaust when I get it back.

Also today, had some more goodies turn up in the post; a boost gauge and the right sender unit for my oil temps atlast!
Those, along with the roll cage will be going in as soon as I get the car back from Lynx and H&S.

Im hoping I can get it all sorted intime for a trip to the 'Ring towards the end of next month, but I think I am just going to have to wait and see and leave booking anything until last minute.

Ill get some pics up once I get the car back.

Think I may have been unclear on this, the heater matrix was ditched weeks ago, but I was contemplating buying one of those little 12v fan heaters just as a temp. measure until I get my heated front screen sorted out.

Either that, or I did think about putting a 12v computer fan on the underside of the dash to blow air up through the windscreen vent, that would be better then nothing at all.

Yes, car is at Lynx getting that done as well has a few other odds and sods. It may even be finished tomorrow, but I cant pick it up until next week anyway.

I am pleased with how the cage mounts have come out, the 2nd 3 that Ben did were even neater then the 1st 3. They look quite good all painted up now. I am glad I have oversized them as it makes it easier I think (less precise in initial positioning for welding and drill after) and it will spread the load slightly more if the cage does get used...

Obviously im hoping it wont get used though.

I dont really have anywhere convienent to store a trailor at the moment, nor anything to tow it with, so the car has to remain drivable. It is my runabout for if the mrs is out in the other car.

We're keeping the Rallye road legal too so plenty of back breaking sweaty clothes wearing red bull drinking miles coming up soon! Crazy

I heard through Dave that you will be heading over to Germany in a couple of weeks with us lot? (Or with others but on the same date?) Unsure

I may have an issue actually getting the cage in the car but i suppose i could install it ready and then just chuck the seat back it to get it round to yours Smile
