  1. Hi Woodzman, Thank you for the post, I am really happy with the cage install. My friend owns a metal fabrication business and did a superb job for me. My brother runs a BMW E36 328i stage car and we’ve run a few other cars previously, we often do Bovington etc but auK rallies are getting harder and harder to find. We have serviced a fair few times out in Belgium and run on the Monte Berg rally in 2019. We had planned a few Belgium events this year but as we know they all got canned! We did manage a run on the Cotswold Stages but it would have been better in a submarine!
  2. So this weekend was set as the big push on the interior, final welding, masking up, primer, flat off and shot the colour.....and we managed to get it all done! The car can now sit and harden this week before the reinstall starts finally. New seats and harnesses on order and dash has gone away for its flock finish. starting to look like a rally car and not a half baked project.
  3. Hi all, Sorry for the radio silence, between CV19, starting a new full time job and my pro welder fitting in the cage between random work it been a long couple of months......however....... * The full weld in multi Custom Cage is in * Floor cut away and FIA seat rails in (A little more welding to be done by us, my welder mate only did the cage) * Captive threads welded in to hold the plumb in extinguisher * Dash cut down and altered (ready to be flocked) * Race heater mounts welded in * Hydro handbrake brackets welded in and the set up modified.
  4. Hey, I haven’t made a finally decision on which LSD I will be running yet, it will obviously be a plated type and not a helical one but exact model TBC. Sorry to everyone for the lack of updates, I will get some up this week, there has been a fair bit going on.
  5. Just realised what I said, been a long day. The original handbrake must stay for MOT and scrutineering, the hydro handbrake will break into the rear brake lines and operate the rear calipers, it’s has nothing to do with the hand brake shoes.
  6. A lot of bits have been done the last few days, in summary... * Test fit of thinned out loom, a few niggles but within a few hours everything was sorted and fully working. * Front panel has been cut down to allow more airflow and ease of removal. * Due to the above, a new radiator mount was fabricated from scratch, old rad used and will be replaced. * New central bar for mounting the oil coolers * HEL Performance oil cooler kit installed, thanks to the guys at HEL, great product. * Uprated power steering cooler and lines install
  7. At the moment the rules don’t allow for any changes to the base braking system so it will be standard for now and I’ll see where we get to once i get to that part lol
  8. Yep, waiting for a new tandem cylinder one to arrive. After sitting in position with eyes closed and feeling for a natural position, I have decided it will be fitted in the space between the gear stick and steering wheel. We had a great weekend on the car, I will put the updates up tomorrow.
  9. After a week of getting a few boxes in the post, it was time today for some trial fitting and starting to map out the interior locations. Firstly the Coolerworx short shifter arrived and what a lovely piece of kit, well made and a great company to deal with, thanks to the crew at Coolerworx. The throw is so close it was quite unbelievable, a flick of the wrist is all that you require to snick through the gate. The NRG boss arrived and so the Sparco wheel was put on to check the feel of the driver controls in relation to each and settle on a final location for the hydr
  10. There is a power to weight regulation that requires an air restriction if you go above a certain level based in the manufacturers declared wight. I think even with the cage in there will be a slight weight saving. As for the panels, some can be changed and that may come later but for now it’s about getting it stage ready and then develop certain Areas later. These cars tend to be 1400kgs in stage trim as an average, that’s not a huge weight when you consider a stage Mk2 escort is around 1200kgs, e36 M3 is around 1400kgs etc Not many cars offer 300bhp RWD for such a good price these days.
  11. Just a few photos from today. The interior is now ready for a paint dusting pre weld in cage. Managed to get the rear rear spoiler off, what a mission that was in readiness for the v1 spoiler, also cut away a fair amount of the under metal from the boot lid. Quick test fit of the dash top only to see what can be chopped off, already cut away the lower section of the centre console tower. You can see the intercom held in place to see what it’s like, carbon fibre sheet ordered to make the switch panels. Removed all the front wheel arch liners, nice to
  12. Good evening everyone, Today saw myself, brother and 2 great mates really get stuck into the internal metal work today. The final parts of the rear metal work have been removed and cleaned up, all seat box sections had the spot welds drilled out and removed (thanks guys you know who you are), almost all the sound deadening removed and cleaned up. At which point I finally I gave the whole area a good run over with the grinder wire bush. For the eagle eyed, I haven’t quite finished the driver footwell because we still have to cut out the section of transmission tunnels t
  13. Just a quick note, here is the pile of wiring already removed from the rear and central loom section. The look running through the dash is next, the eng8ne loom will be left alone currently. fingers crossed once a lot of items are removed from the ECU map it will start again with this thinning down lol
  14. After posting on the 350z page on Facebook, I have been asked to start a build thread. I thought I’d say hello and let you into my latest project. I am new to the world of Zeds but with the new 2020 Cat 3 regs being introduced but the MUK for rally cars with larger than 3.0 multi valve engines, I decided a return to rallying was in order. Always fancied a 350z ever since they were released and a tarmac rally one is even better. After a little hunt through a load of tatty rubbish I found a blue 2006 Revup about an hour from home and picked it up 2 weeks ago. So f
