Great weekend of progress on Grey. Finished shaping the radiator shroud and got the placement set.

Also finished the front radiator tubes. Added the fittings for a heater core, finalized the length and finished the beads.

It has been hot as balls here lately so I have been working on the harness in the basement when I need a cooling cycle.

Many thanks to Kent for the design. Not quite as nice as his but definitely more than adequate.

More pieces in for the final time. After much deliberation I decided to run the brake fluid reservoir hoses through the original holes in the steering rack hump and through the fuel pump opening. Only took two tries to get the block off plate the way I wanted it.

Scott What hose are you using for the brake lines? looks to be a push lock product of some sorts. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Sorry for the delaaayyd reply...I was in Maine with my wife celebrating our 10 anniversary most of last week.

The hose is some "Porsche" remote reservoir hose, I believe from Pelican.

Works great with AN4 pushlock fittings and much better looking than the red Wilwood stuff that comes with the MC's.

In town for 26 hours and then off to Mexico for a day of meetings, no progress updates from this weekend.

I had a quick trip to Mexico for work after returning from Maine and brought back a 9 day case of Mantazuma's revenge. What a shitty situation and not very conducive to progress in the garage.

I did have a nice productive long weekend around in the garage. Not a lot of photogenic progress but I did get one fun thing finished. I decided to modify the clutch pivot to better work with the hydraulic MC. The old hole was slightly oblong and was pretty close to the size of the new pin so making a bushing was going to be challanging. I also wanted to gain a few more threads of engagement on the input rod. To accomplish this I welded some more material around the hole and then used a rotabroach cutter to open it up to 1/2".

Bushing material arrives tomorrow. More fun with the lathe.

No progress last weekend because my wife and I had our annual trip to NY Finger Lakes wine region to restock the racks. 4.5 cases this trip should get us by until the snow starts flying. If you have not visited the area, definitely check it out. The reds do not hold up to California/European wines but some of the Dry whites are exceptional. Watkins Glen is also in the area. There was an SVRA event going on while we were there.

Good progress this weekend. Stephen stopped by and it was great to catch up.

Finished the front end of the center tunnel. I missed putting in the radiator bleed return line hole while I had the center tunnel out. Tool a while to figure out how to get a drill in to make the hole. Could not get to it from the pedal area but a step bit in the pneumatic 90 deg drill did the trick. Cleaned up all of the exposed metal, a bit of paint and the proper sized grommets and we are ready to install the hoses. Still need a fuel line grommet. Could not find one in any of the bins.

Attached Image

On to the auxiliary fuse/relay box. This is a very convenient place to put it but I underestimated how not flat this area was. After much reshaping is almost fits. I lost my dolly holder so there is still some shaping to go.

On with the clutch pivot. Turning wheels on the lathe is like a time warp. It is amazing how time flies while making chips. Unfortunately I am not the greatest machinist so I make a lot of chips. Eventually got one bushing pretty much the way it needed to be...although it will be remade.

Hydraulic clutch master cylinder achieved.

It is so smooth I had to take a video. Posted it on instagram

@seec_motorsport

Set up the brake pedal also just to make sure that nothing was messedd up from the clutch bracket.

My new tool finally arrive!

Attached Image

Only took about 2 hours to assemble. Have not powered it up and made it to anything useful yet because that will likely be a rabbit hole of tinkering. Will wait unit I have something useful to make.

Well, credit where credit is due: I totally swipped your reservoir mount location and cover plate design, so thanks for leading the way there...!

If I can help you with anything plasma table, send any of the .dxf files I have, etc., please just let me know!

No turning back now. After much checking, rechecking, measuring, drilling I finally bit the bullet and painted the front trunk. I couldn't stand the huge stain from a brake fluid leak prior to me getting the car so I got rid of it and painted the entire floor too. Amazing how much etching occurred from the brake fluid. Had to use Metal Ready to make sure all of the corrosion was out of the pits.

Starting to look like something! I also added a few tabs in the intake to keep the front of the ducting from moving.

There were a few holes that I decided to shift a bit...no problem just weld them shut.

Attached Image

More parts installed for good is a good feeling.

I am going to feel bad slicing this up to work with the AN fuel lines. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

Where did you find it? I may order one to have it hand if I ever pull the lines from my car.

I know!

I got it from aturboman (Robert) in response to my WTB ad. He was able to get it out immediately and at a very decent price. Thanks, Robert!

I did consider the NOS fact for about 30 seconds, then figured it's not something a concourse judge will ever see, so no real value from that perspective.

Spare tire mount & repaint looks fantastic.

Just a few grommets.

Still need to place the clutch and brake lines. I thought that I knew where I wanted them but decided to move things around a bit.
