You bet, going back and forth on a Wavetrac differential.... need to make a decision but will definitely document it.

It’s that kind of thinking that changed the build from a Turbo to what it is now...!!

Tell me about it, ha. Cheers to scope creep! :beer:

About your *forged (not cast) control arms on the rear, *cough*update time*cough, Aaron detailed this at some point on MG. Couple things I wanted to mention... 1st, the rears are stamped to allow deflection in the event of a collision, hopefully save the SF or diff, etc. 2nd, you'll need to flip them side to side to get them in the middle of the wheelwell (IIRC).

Ok, ok... forged... I’m looking to get away from the deflection in he suspension... was simply trying to avoid spending more money on AK Motorsports site this year!!

I’ll have a look for Aarons, Varia said I need the 90 ball joints, I already had them flipped with the shorter arm to the rear of the car... I’ll see what happens with the ball joints.

Ok so still waiting for flanges to get here... I had a quick email session with Scott at Advanced, little concerned on the diff upgrade, he said that often when coming apart things get damaged that can’t be bought. Looking in line things like seals etc don’t look like they are available. Somewhat of a concern especially the side that has the diff lock seal... he has to custom makes shim kits etc and doesn’t even offer the service on rear diffs because of the potential cost overruns (my guess any way as I didn’t ask him.

Going to talk to him tomorrow more on it, I’m banking on the fact that my base car was in amazing conditions with low miles / km.

So my car didn’t have gear oil under it but it also hasn’t been driven a lot the last 10 years... never being one that’s smart enough to not dive in I thought I’d pull the flanges this morning...

No drama at all, bolts came out and stubs with zero issues... seals seem ok, little stiffer than I would prefer but not bad.

Moved inside the car while I’m waiting in a couple of suspension parts, working on the final mock up of the hydraulic hand brake. I think I’m ready to tack things in place.

I’m just going to throw the carpet back in to make sure I have the console height adjusted properly!

That was my plan with the gold foil as well, did you source yours locally? Mopac or something?

I got it through Pegasus Racing, this is what I would say is the original gold foil, works very well. I am in the US often enough that I save quite a bit even with the ridiculous exchange...

I like the reflective stuff. I don't recall what kind of turbo and manifold you're running but Ive been finding that with my tubular header and turbo the hood is getting cooked a little but from the heat so I think I am going to add some to the bottom of the hood.

I’m going to give some of this stuff a go on my downpipe, it’s a tight fit. They have some really good product. I had been trying to find bendable heat shield material like we use in aviation and they’ve got it!

I went digging but can’t find the image that I took with the thermal camera on your old car of the before and after,!but if I recall the temperature drop on the hood was around 85-90 f. That was with some lava heat shield I had left over from my motorcycle.

I’m going to replace the shield on my hood. Haven’t decided if I am pulling the hood liner. I’ve never seen one in such good shape so it will likely stay on.

Nice find!! I’m either doing something like that or going to do Jet Hot on the manifold and down pipe.

I opted for coating on the pipes because wraps can (and do) trap grit and moisture and encourage corrosion.

I agree on the dirt and corrosion - what did you use for coating? Local or?

Swaintech White Lightning.

I'd also heavily consider CeraKote if I were doing it all over again.

Haven’t really talked about the heart of the car much.... planning on pulling it out of the crate this weekend so that I can start bolting stuff on...

Wagner Intake - port matched
Iroz exhaust header and Dow pipe
FRP spec’d Cat Cam’s
Mahle Pistons
IE Rods
CNC’d head
FRP Micro polished crank
Oil pump
Water pump
And the other usual stuff associated with a build...
