    Finished off all the welding and have painted the underside with black satin 2 pack. There was some old damage down one side which has been dollied as much as possible and filled over.



    Have filled and primered the rear end so looking quite good now, one of the rear doors needed a new bottom.



    The fuel system on the engine is injection so I need to add a high pressure in tank pump with a swirl pot, I decided to use the original 300e tank and add an internal pump from a 200sx that I had in stock. The seat fuel system does not have a full return flow from the injector rail but uses the external fuel filter to control pressure. This means the injector rail will need to be bled muck like a diesel.





    I will use the original sender unit as I am retaining the gauges.

    Now I have finished my sons 32 pick up I have been able to push this forward.

    In order to clear the throttle position sensor, I needed to make a bracket to change the position of the clutch master without cutting the bulkhead. I used a Spitfire one which is at an angle so gives enough space. I fitted a 200sx brake master at the same time to give duel circuit brakes.






    As the engine is transverse mount it has a large aluminium mount on the front which cuts down clearance for the rad so I cut it off and made a blanking plate.



    Filled a number of holes in the bulkhead and sprayed final colour



    After lots of rubbing down for which the next 2 pictures do not convey the time involved I painted the colour on BMW Ice blue from the current Mini





    I will leave this now for a few weeks while the paint settles before colour sanding and giving it a final coat.

    I have a full set of 5 1/2" wheels which I have had blasted and painted body colour but still not sure this is the right choice, I will be fitting chrome hub caps.

    Still need a pair of headlight trims and sidelights if someone can help

    Cheers

    Rich

    It is not yet on the road but apart from sorting the electrics to get the engine running it is just about complete.

    My wife insisted I took care of the ones I have already built and have been using consistantly. I have therefore done the bodywork, interiors and some mechanical issues on the BIVA coupe, A roadster, 34 sedan and the 34 coupe. Along with other jobs on my sons rods and garden projects. Never enough time

    This is how it is at the mo.
