I don't suppose you would be kind enough to link me to the paint you are using?
the silver parts have come out very nice indeed!

thanks :)

Paint is silver engine enamel- eBay is a good bet.

Been chipping away the last few evenings getting bits done and the engine dressed- few more bits to do, but not far off putting it back in the car now.











Pete will have rebuilt the lader so hopefully I'll drop the engine back in mid Feb, then MOT time  :)

Got new discs & pads now, along with a G40 airbox, so the list of parts to buy is small now.

Loom was next for some attention, a previous owner had done some interesting 'repairs' - no wonder it had a few running issues.

Loom started like this:



Removed the insulation tape from it  ::) :



That revealed some gems:





Luckily work have the correct connectors, so a few crimps later:



Bit of soldering:



Some heatshrink:



Job jobbed:



Had to do that on a few connectors- but loom is good now, all connectors cleaned too.

Wrapped in pukka loom tape and ready to go back in the car:





Cheers

Pete

Just a side note- this car will be for sale once it's had an MOT, I've just bought a house, and don't have room for 5 cars  :'(

If you're interested PM me- given the amount of new/refurbished parts I'd like £3k ono, having said that the shell does need a little paint, so feel free to offer a sensible priced based on this.

Cheers

The previous repair work on the loom is so pikey!

Built to be a daily mate, so a nice mix of stock/uprated parts.

Engine should be ~130bhp with a remap and 65mm pulley, fresh clutch, cambelt, etc etc.

Suspension is Koni and in good nick, with a stage 2 frame it's about ideal for the road (175/60 A539 too)

All the right bits  ;D

Also you can't get G40s in America- so best drive whilst you can!

Over christmas started stripping supercharger at Pete's gaff, he's now finished it off so is fully rebuilt all new seals and bearings (unlike Jabba)

Pot of bits:



Finished article, same paint as the rocker cover, gearbox, and inlet - should hopefully look nice and clean in the engine bay  :)



Cheers Pete!

Lader out of its bubble wrap now, will get engine ready to be stuck in this weekend. Got to replace the front struts as the wheelbearing is knackered one side and its faster to swap the strut out for a good un.
