Gearbox
Block
Sump
Head and bottom half of the inlet manifold going silver.

Rocker cover going liquid yellow.

Thinking about taking wire wool to the powerbox to take the shine of it and give a brushed alloy look.
And just going to do the belt cover black again.

Been busy the day again, Got all the front brake lines run and all clipped into place. put the gearbox mount into place to make sure it cleared the catch tank(had to be adjusted lol). put the other front engine mount in place. Stuck my washer bottle in a basin of bleach to try clean the inside and it came up minted so thats now in, managed to get the wiper motor back into the bulk head. Then set about making up a new servo vacum pipe (hidden) to go to the inlet manifold. After all that was done there wasn't much time before i started work so made a start cleaning the gearbox up.

Pics..........

Pollen filter, Wiper motor and washer bottle in


Not much clearance, And yes the engine mount is still to be powder coated hehe


New vacum pipe fitted inside bulkhead








And finally the gearbox


Still needs alot more cleaning but its getting there.

Cheers for looking folks and all comments welcome as usuall

The outside will be getting done by a painter, I'm only doing the bay and interior by tins cause i want to do as much myself as i possibly can. The only thing getting done by other people are the paint job and the bits i need to get powder coated.

Cheers bud
