Cheers Guys, basically the hold up is a lack of immediately available funding, but that said I have a pretty lengthy list of little jobs to get done prior to a test fire however things are happening and the car is looking more finished than ever.
No lower stripe I'm not into them on a wagon. If I do one at all it will be like factory or just a smaller/thinner version of a factory stripe. My thoughts were a light silver or white for the stripe as I want the body to look as close to original as possible.
Received a call and went to collect my diff. Stoked on the finished product. One note to add, after trial fitting I will rotate the calliper from the 10o'clock position to the 2 o'clock position to allow for easier hand brake cable fitment and clearance.
As previously mentioned its a R31 shkyline/borg warner with slotted discs
mazda 4x110 stud pattern and shortened to the standard 808/rx3 wagon length. Kaaz 2 way LSD 4:11 centre. Enough chatter roll out the pics
I had to make a small spacer for the Leaf locating pin as it too tall for the diff feet. Once installed you would barely notice what I did.
Stoked to see the wags on its feet again, yes this was just for the pic and to check clearances but a great moment in the build to see it starting to take shape.
Major items stopping a test start is fuel system, more on this soon. Oh and an exhaust. Engine bay requires a few things ie wire up starter, coil packs, alternator, plugs and fittings for wiring looms and clutch hydraulic lines and new injectors that have a resistance of 8ohms or over to be combatible with my Haltech sprint RE rather than run external resistance. Tail shaft is another of those oh yeah need that too. It feels close then when you look close there is a bit to do.
other things to do, brake lines, fitting brake bias adjuster and line lock solenoid to rear brake line.
Test wiring and looms, fit head and tail lights and test etc
apart from that its then onto the interior and final chroming of bumpers and a few tid bits. When I sat down to write a to do list I hit a page full easy but allot are small jobs that can be done in one hit when in action. My sights are set for a summer test run but not going to stress if I don't make it. Locally we have a All Japan Day and I'd love to make an appearance at the next one in my car rather than just spectating. Thats the goal set.. lets see how I go.
Missing: 1 x 808/Rx3 wagon petrol flap complete (no lock req.) If you know of one please let me know! It appears I no longer have one or misplaced mine. yet to be confirmed.
