Box Almost There

The gearbox was finally prepped for paint over the weekend:

Subsequently the main alloy body received two coats of POR15 Engine Enamel and the steel bits like the clutch arm, gear selectors and 5th gear cover received two coats of POR15 Rust Prevention Paint and a top coat of Chassis Coat Black. This lot should have cured by the weekend. Yesterday I nipped down to the local Peugeot Parts place and picked up a new 5th gear cover gasket. So I now have everything to put it back together.

The gearbox is looking good after two stages of cleaning. POR15 Marine Clean is the weapon of choice and is fantastic stuff at getting rid of the dirt. I filed off some of the rough casting marks then buzzed the box with my range of wire brush drill attachments. It now needs the nooks and cranies takling with the Dremel and then I’ll get it etch primed and ready for painting.

Looked at the wiring again tonight. Stripped out half a kilo just from the loom that feeds through from the passenger fusebox to the engine fuebox. Lots of redundant wiring in that.

Stripped some more stuff out of the ‘bay and took the front wings off today and did a few little jobs to tidy up odds and ends. The stuff I’d ordered in the week to start work on the engine bay bodywork didn’t arrive in time for the weekend so I’m doing odd jobs.

Engine and lighting looms are both off so tomorrow I’ll have a crack at them to identify what’s needed for my paired down engine loom in addition to what’s on the Omex Loom. I also started cleaning the grime off the gearbox, but ran out of Cillit Bang… Still at least you can tell that there’s actually aluminium underneath the caked on dirt and oil. Here’s what it looked like before I started:

Ultraleggeras are back from powdercoating and refurb at The Wheel Specialist. Now looking rather amazing in Anthracite… I’ll hopefully get some tyres on them next month…
