Nice work with the dashboard. Can you still see the grain? I've been thinking about doing a plywood one perhaps with a black wood stain.

Thanks mate. there much better than the clear ones it came with.


There slightly smaller than the mk3's so the paint might be a bit differet round the light if it's old paint.

So I've had the suspension set up a couple of months back at Southam Mini's.
All was good and I thought I'd go on a trackday as I got some vouchers for one :)





All went well and I had a great day :)

Following Sunday (last Sunday) first day since trackday I went out in he. All was well until it started making a right old racket!
I lost 2nd and 3rd gear, and was not happy at idle :(

So Monday evening I started the investigation....











I'll start taking it to bits tomorrow night.
Luckily I have a spare box that I had rebuilt but never used it attached to a spare block! :)


Thanks
Josh

So after replacing the gearbox with a reconditioned one I had spare all seemed well...
Until I went to my mates house and ripped the exhaust off on his gate stop in the middle of his drive!!!!
The electric gates started to close so I panicked and reversed! Not realizing how the exhaust had come off!!

I ended up with this....





Out came the blow torch and got it sorted! Just in time for Retro Rides at santa pod...













Was a very good weekend. I only managed one run on Saturday as it was very wet!
First and only time down the strip and I managed a 17! not very good but I think I had clutch slip!

Now getting the turbo bits together that I have been collecting for about 10 years!!

1293 block (ready for paint to be stripped and re painted green)


Lightened and balanced con rods






I have 15cc dished omega's as well on standard rods, that I hope to swap over to the lightened ones.

Here's the crank I want to use.
Bit strange as it has two casting numbers on it...







As I'm not sure what numbers to believe, I'm thinking of getting it wedged, crossdrilled, cleaned/stress relived, and hardened...Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for looking :)

Josh

Looking at the colour and the 6581 it's the proper one.
