bit bling for track wheels but what the hell.


Image

all lights, wipers, horn, indicators work etc. Even the reverse lights work.

 wiring in the glove box is for the ignition etc as that is where the ECU will live.

Barry - we would love to see this at one of the meetings this year such as the AGM in May or the Silverstone race meeting at the end of July where we are teaming up with the S2000 boys.

A S800 with a S2000 engine sounds just the car for that stand!

Re: 1967 S800 restoration project with a difference


at the rate i'm going it'll still be a while before i'm able to show it.




anyway, long over due for an update.


I was never quite sure with the original exhaust manifold I made so I scrapped it and remade another one.


Image


quite easy with available parts. (i'm also going to make headers for the Barracuda hence all the extra bends)

Image

Image

iv'e had the whole exhaust system metal sprayed to keep the rust at bay.



iv'e also had a rethink on the rear suspension. I need to make the arms on the axle all adjustable to be able to change the pinion angle and to fine tune the location.

Image

i had a pair of spare arms of the scrap car i broke years ago. each arm can do two adjustable arms. the original arms will be put into safe keeping.


reason for making the arms like that rather than rose joints both ends is so that the noise from the rose joints attached to the axle wont transmit the noise to the chassis.

The rear brakes were proving to be a bit of a hurdle. I wasn't happy with my original plan of the Cortina P100 drum brakes. (came with the axle bits I acquired) New drums are proving impossible to find and are really heavy anyway. so a rethink and hours of internet searching and I have a plan.

Image

Mk 2 MX5 calipers are easily available and only £75 new. the discs are Honda Civic circa 2002 and again cheap and easily available.

Bit of machining to the disc.and it'll fit. The calipers are quite small and it all fits under the standard wheels. result.

I know it's a lot of work just to be able to fit the standard wheels and will probably spend little time with the standard wheels on anyway.

it's very tight but will work. Just need to make the brackets to weld to the axle.


loads of clearance with the 13 inch alloys.

Image


no point worrying to see if the Porsche wheels fit. I made the axle 20mm shorter than the S800 unit so wider wheels will fit without sticking out and will space the wheels as necessary. With the beefier wheel studs it wont be an issue.
