    been fairly busy this week.
    finished up all the gearbox tunnel pieces, also cut an excess hole into the side of the trans tunnel so i can get at the slave cylinder for the clutch and made up a cover plate.











    looking very dusty at the moment.



    today been on with masking up the inside for paint as everything is going to be sprayed back purple even though i am going to put carpets on the floors just to cut down some of the road noise.



    next job is a load of sanding.

    over the last few years the garage seems to get really cold (or i could just being getting old ) so over the last few months we have been installing a fire with a back boiler so later on we could plumb in a few radiators. today was the day when we could finally fire it up.


    what a difference , its going to make working in winter alot better.
    If I want to warm my garage up, I go for a drive in the truck, when it gets back in garage, shut doors, temp in garage goes up by about 5 degrees!

    got a bit more done,
    i have had to move the handbrake back abit because of the new gear stick position which turned out to be alot easier than i thought. with that and the box in it as a knock on effect and that is the trans tunnel cover panel, it now does not fit.
    so its out with the sheet metal and the bead roller to make a new one. this time how ever i am going to make it in 3 pieces as the old one was a pain to remove.
