Ivan's coupe (nice rack!)
Updated TODO list:

-Check parking brake cables, fix up if required, mount them.
-Finish up steering rack (install new joints, boots and lock spacer) and mount it.
-Mount steering column.
-Mount crusty old front struts.
-Mount crusty old rear axle.
-Put it back on its wheels.

Other things to keep me occupied:

Progress:
Last weeks todo list:
-Check parking brake cables Need new cables and some TLC.
-Finish up steering rack (install new joints, boots and lock spacer) and mount it.
-Mount steering column.
-Mount crusty old front struts.
-Mount crusty old rear axle.
-Put it back on its wheels.

Other things to keep me occupied:
-Fit fuel filler door cable release components to shell (some body modifications required)
-Clean up and paint prop shaft.
-Move the hood & passenger door from my basement to the garage

The (somewhat boring) story:
Swapped out 3 of the 4 joints for new ones on my steering assembly and assembled everything including lock spacers and new boots.

Installed the steering arms loosely for now. After taking this picture I also replaced the tension rod bolts for the studs that are supposed to be in there.

Dug up my parking brake cables and drew my conclusions. Will be ordering 2 new ones soon.

Gave the parking brake some 2k black and emptied the rest on an assortment of brackets again.

Had a go at fitting the remotely operated fuel filler lid.

Had to drill off the old lock tab and drill a new hole for the popper:

Didnt get the tab off quite cleanly and I didnt want to weld any more at this stage (risk setting paint on fire). So I drilled the rest of the spotweld out, painted it and put a rubber plug in the hole. That will do.

To end things, I roughly cleaned up the prop shaft and threw it in the boot of the daily. Will see what to do with it once the new carrier bearing arrives. Might take it to a shop for a refresh, if rates are acceptable.

Just because it helps keep me on track, updated (short term) TODO list:

Things to move to garage (in order of importance):
-steering joint
-panhard rod
-interior plug & grommet assortments
-Door
-Hood

Things to do
-Order new parking brake cablesdone
-Mount steering column.
-Make new holes where required for fuel tank splash shield and mount it.
-Clean up fuel tank debris shield (found it!) and mount it.
-Clean up original damper heat shield (found it) and perhaps cover it with the aluminium stuff
-Mount parking brake & cables.
-Install roof skin supports (pre-req: buy some anti-flutter sealant)
-Mount crusty old front struts.
-Mount crusty old rear axle.

Non-critical path stuff to keep me occupied:
-Get prop shaft refurbed & mount new carrier bearing (once it arrives). Paint it (I have special plans for this).
-Cut up & extend side skirt (one needs a tiny adjustment due to DIY rear arch replacement).
-Start work on the original engine block (all hail the mighty 3-rib 16v).

Thanks, I got the cables from a friend's father, it belongs on a LHD carina-e.
Looks a bit 90's but it fits. Just needs a bit of imagination to lock the handles in place, they bolt in but sit a bit loose.
