Engine got dropped off last night after a bit of a eventfull day. Me and jay finished off stripping the sound deadning out of it and getting rid of all the sticky tar bits left behind. Got a phonecall to say the guy delivering the engine has broke down. Haha anyways it arrived eventualy. Now in my garage, going to be getting stripped down to the block today and the loom and ecu fitted to the car. Along with any other parts to make it a rolling chassis. Pics and that later

stripped down the engine yesterday, loom off, alt off, gearbox and everything off, and fitted the loom to the car, accidentally ended up ripping the dashboard off :/ haha so that needs re fitting after tidying the loom behind it and fixing the cables we snapped for the heaters haha, pics to follow when photobucket comes back online

ok so the last plug just needs connecting or it needs cutting and splicing into the original corsa loom behind the dash?

the fuel relay just leave as it is and the massive one just leave how it is?

that last plug needs joining to the 9 pin plug that will be on the dash loom, will be around the drivers kick pannel, either just hard wire it in or chop the plug of on your corsa loom and join it to them to make it plug in still, and yes leave the othere alone
