The beauty of a good finished conversion is all in the details. Steering rack finished and ready to fit when I get around to the rebuild.

Took 3 coats of paint but casing is ready. JB Weld epoxy has arrived, but I took a guess when I was at work on the size of the domed nut that would be needed to seal off the end of the pinion and was a size out. Replacement and suitably sized unit on the way.

Update time! Well with holidays and a bit off a lengthy spell battling the N/S inner wing, there’s finally some progress to report. First of all though I managed to pick up a S2 Rallye Gearbox Pinion and Crownwheel that is already prepped and ready for fitting to a Quaife ATB limited slip differential. This has the 16 tooth pinion and 65 tooth crown wheel giving a 4.06 final drive.

N/S inner wing works are finally complete. In the end I cut out a section I was unhappy with and redid it and it took a lot of time to get it all to a standard I was happy with. The inner wing is currently being prepped for primer. As this was now essentially finished off, it was time to do another job that I’d be waiting to get done – filling in the holes in the firewall bulkhead that are going to be surplus to requirements. One hole is from the fuel lines the other was used by part of the wiring loom. Some of the metal sections chopped out were a little rusted anyway either way it would have needed some attention.
