Update: SatchShift Fitted

Work on the car continues. Last night I cut a section out of the chassis rail to confirm the thickness (SWG16 / 1.6mm) and then popped out this morning before work to get a square metre of zintec of the correct thickness. I can’t help thinking that anyone who believes that their 106 is rust free just hasn’t found it yet…

Progress has slowed becuase I’ve been waiting for some bits in the post, so last night I did my trial fit of the Satchshift. Everything was marked out and then drilled in place so it’s ready to fit when I’ve finished on the rest of the car.

Colin Satchell and Sandy Brown have developed a long lever rose-jointed quick shift kit for the 106. This is it:



Affectionately known in 106 circles as the SatchShift kit, Colin sent it on the 10th December and it’d then been jammed in the Christmas post. It’s nicely made down to the grease nipples on the rose joints. I’m looking forward to getting it trial fitted and using it once the car is back on the road.
