Cheers,
I used a black etch primer... i think next time ill probably just get grey... Im thinking the black gloss coat may be i little difficult to see coverage wise?

2pc Painted the pan


So yesterday i 2pc painted the underside and will do the reverse tommorow night. Fairly happy with the result. 2pc is so easy to paint with which is nice, could have been a little more fussy and rubbed the pan up to a smooth finish everywhere and boged up any issues but as it stands it should be coated evenly and well.
Hope you like it.

Nice work.

I always paint the edge of the disc rotor to stop it rusting there too.

Cheers, it was pretty easy to strip as i didnt do a 'propper' paint job... Might as well do the outside too and then strip off the face like the front rotors.

Cheers

PS removed the excess paint off the back rotors now too.

Here is an idea that might help some others. 1 Meter of 10 x 1.5mm threaded rod cut into 4 equal lenghts. A bit of copper pipe and some washers and a nut. It enables really easy setting of IRS cover plate. Let me know if i can help.

Leave the front brake backing plates off, it will give you better cooling to the discs.

Only time will tell.

Thanks Guys,
cnfabo i am just using a 1600 stock for the meantime. I want to get her moving and see what issues comeup. Make sure it turn in ok, stops when and how i want her to etc... then eith 1916 or wrx. I am in two minds. Can't get a decent 1916 for less than 2-5 thousand and could do a 160-200hp wrx conversion for 5 thosand. So engine is up in the air... obviously the whole reason of building your own car is so that yo can do all the work yourself, and for that reason i will probably stay air cooled.
simple straitforward additions to the stock donk will be 1:1.25 0r 1:1.4 rockers 40mm spanish twin throat webers, merged exhaust (ignition?) anyone with spare coin feel free to donate... :no:

So guys haven't completed heaps but have been working,

there is brake fluid in the lines, but still having a few issues bledding up a good pedal

Bought a merged exhaust and 75 amp Alternator

replacing a few seals in prep for engine
gearbox and flywheel mainly

have to look at clutch think it was pretty weak last time i drove it...

handbrake works

installed extra eccentric camber adjusters, they offer a lot more tuning

all chassis bolts are in nicely and graphite lubed

pedal assembly in in nicely

Steering box has been overhauled but needs adjustment

Fuel tank needs 8mm outlet but should be able to sort that in brass

got another CV joint today as i broke one, should be installed this week

need to paint engine tinware to make it look nice, just black

got racing seat and harness just need to fabricate frame

Not going for a roll bar just yet ($$$:mad:)

thinking about removable rear valance but just installing engine for now

still need to pull empi shifter apart and lube properly, but is ok for now

My neighbout got me some made up, its more rubber foam than rubber, self adhesive on the bottom, very easy to use and glued where it joins so very weatherproof. I think from memory its 8mm thick, and 35 or 45mm wide, it has definately allowed me to get a clean seal.

Cheers Aussie its getting closer!
