Thanks man.

Been a bit slow with cash, but while I wait for bits to come in, I have managed to button up the fuel system.

Well the bum anyway. .

It's a ke70 tank, s13 cradle welded in with a Holley hydramat and walbro 255 pump. Again, it's a bits a. The main feed to the front is 3/8 Lol from when I was gunna run the uz. I'm using the old feed as the return.

The cradle has 5/16 inlet and outlet, so there is some home made adaptors from a big old bolt. Not perfect but will get it running lol. Tank was given a birthday also, with internal seal paint thing done and a new coat of racing black outside.

To be on the save side, You may want to add a short grounding wire from the chassis to the gas tank. Dave W

Yeah that's the plan. There is a small earth for the cradle itself (it's isolated by the rubber oring) and I'll do one specifically for the tank also.

So I scrounge some cash up and got some pretty new 8.8 bolts for the rear end. Hurt a lot having to actually spend money lol.
But managed a dry fit of the suspension and wheels.

Good news, it all got a about as perfectly as I could have hoped for.

Bad news, I need to remake the two top arms for chassis clearance lol.

But all progress

Forgot these bits.

I had fucked up a bit with the tank and hadn't allocated for a breather. So did some hacking and welding and set up a breather from the tank cradle cap to the car hard lines [Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86]

Blech.

One of those days.

Remade the front arms to clear the chassis. But cos I'm a dickhead, they didn't clear the cradle mount.

Take 2 was more successful. Not exactly pretty, and I'll do it properly with some rod ends and chromemolly down the track, but this will get it going.[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86]

Made a few small steps in progress.

Ran out of subtle black paint. See if you can pick where...

Today saw the wheels go on both sides of the car... the driver side has a bit more metal missing for suspension travel. I can tuck plenty of time before bottoming out. Will trim to match the other side shortly. Also sorted the bulk of the handbrake stiff. I'm not convinced it's a perfect solution, but will see how it goes.

Yeah look the jury is out for the moment lol

Once I can get some pads in there I can give it a test pull and see. My brain says the stops are simply holding th3 force of the outer sliding against the internal cable, a d it's the cable that sees load.

But I'm open to the idea that I fucked up lol once w ever some pads in I'll know soon enough.

So been a while. I lost tapatalk for a bit after PayPal fucked my account.

Anyways, once the worst of winter seemed over, I've managed a solid few weeks of progress. Old girl is dangerously close to some sort of achievement.

I needed to relocate the car a bit for access to the front. Hence the gratuitous shot on 4 wheels. So i set about figuring out the engine position ans stuff. Gave up trying to be tricky abd used 20mm crossmember spacers for clearance. (Its ok, its treated pine..... :/ only temp to work out sizing. ) The eyeball work i did early on started to come back to bite me, with the shift position being too far forward.[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86]

So set about making the engine and box a permamnat resident of the car.

Started with the box end and worked forward. Clearance looks a bit tight iver the steering shaft, but its near 10mm at the closest

Random colors simply cos i ran out of black lol made me a yondu bracket.

As you can see in the last pics, the eyeball drug induced guestimations I did early on just keep on giving. The extractors were so badly on the piss lol.

But I stoiclly ignored that and went on with the engine mounts. And thats the engine in its final spot.

Sump clearance is okkkkkkk..... im gonna use a slimmer bolt and weld a small v shield informed of the bolt. It sits about 4 or5 mm below the cross member line.

Also took the chance to finish off the front half of the exhaust. Made a poor mans slip joint at the front,

And even out the rear bumper on to see how bad that build had gone lol. Actually was pretty good lol [Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86]

Had a small victory with the stearing uni joint. Had been stressing over how to make up the difference with the dropped crossmember . In the end, I randomly tried a second uni joint from the other crossmember, turned out it was perfectly 20mm longer .

So I had to set about moving the shifter back a bit. As it sat, tbe gear stick was hard against the radio in 1st and 3rd lol

Also sorted the reattachement of the radiator support panel.

Needed trumpets for the throttles.

This posed a problem s I had clearance issues with the brake booster and the bonnet lol.

Eventuslly I plan on a booster delete to gain the space needed for a decent plenum, but for now, i present "the winky wonky donkey dicks" [Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86]

One of my lesser moments was turning the old girl over on the rotiserie before i had the car port up lol. She filled with so much water i had to drill a small hole in the roof as a drain lol..

But that left the roof lining a bit worse for wesr.

A few days with the heater going and a can of Mr sheen later, its came up not too shit lol. [Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86]

Final bit of adventure so far is trying to sort out the manifold.

I chopped her to bits and set about doing it in the car.

Am using more slip joints for ease of making.

And thats about it... need to sort a tailshaft out, and a million little bits and pieces, but she is progressing solidly.

Hit a wall with the wiring. I'm just not confident enough with an entirely new skill lol. So a mate is gknna come and help me with that bit once the rest is sorted.

I also have some rust work that needs doing, but its all easy to do while the csr is driving. At the moment, driving is the main goal. I can sort little bits like the longer lca and rust and proper trumpets and filter etc then.

So todays adventure were modest. I had hopes for getting the radiator mounting sorted.

I used some commonwhore lower mounts (cheapest things i could find ) and made a bracket that bolts onto the lower sill. Had no idea how i was ganna make it work, but fumbled my way through the top mountz also.

Figured i should chuck the bonnet on and see if things fit.

Turns out i was a bit preemptive with winky wonly donky dicks, and the straight trumoets fits under the bonnet.

So i have ummed and ahhed for ages about wanting to do a booster delete. I couldnt afford the grand chase bays wants for their tidy little setup.

But did some thinking and measuring and have bitten the bullet on a plan. If i redrill the pedal 25mm further up, i gain a pedal ratio of 6.1 to 1. That seems the go to for manual brakes. Ive ordered a bm44 2 port master, a chunk of aluminium for the adaptor plate, and am waiting on a gktech abs delete hose kit. This kit should bolt everything up and finalise the brake setup (lines anyways lol) the booster delete means i should be able to remove the last of the winky wonky donkey dicks lol [Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86][Image: AEU86 AE86 - Family man's ae86]
