Faced a few problems with assorted pieces behind the dash but I was quite pleased with the solutions I came up with. just need to get the buggers working now

The Defi's are they the 60mm or the 52mm??

Im thinking that your engine cover would look sweet in the same anodized blue finish as on your cooling plate at the front! Oh and what are those rims exactly? Keep the pics coming!

Well, finally got round to moving the battery to the boot and fitting the RIPS catchtank/washer bottle......



Still need to get some hoses and fittings and connect it up but just happy its in for now......

Battery was chucked in the boot...


made up a holder by modifying the original calmp and using a bit of threaded rod. Will be getting a proper battery tray/box so didnt see the need to cut down the rod as I'll be using it again somewhere else. Wire is some nice 16sqmm I had lying about. Thought I had some black 16sqmm as well but it turned out to be only 10 so went with dual 16's for both +ve and -ve. Its the same colour but I'm not really fussed. As you can see I also ran some 10sqmm from the -ve clamp straight to the boot floor just to help the earthing throughout the chassis.

Easy peasy job, just need to connect it all up and we'll be sweet!!!

Well, managed to get myself some hoses and -16(!!) fittings which apparently came from a NASCAR. Plumbed and wired the washers the other week as well so catchtank/washer bottle is now fully functional.....




All in all very pleased with the results....As you can see I've hoseclipped the ends up at the head side but will get some proper looking finishers and alloy hose spacers in time.
I've also taken the plunge and removed the rear seats completely and I'm considering removing all the rear trimmings as well. I suppose if there are no back seats then why keep the trim??? I do intend to strip it out, cage it and make a dedicated track car but its soooo hard to do to a car that Ive dreamt about owning since around '90. Now I've built a couple of MKII Escort rally cars from fully road trimmed RS2000's and didnt even bat an eyelid but something in my head is telling me this is completely different (even though it realy isnt) (????).

Glad I looked at this thread. You've convinced me to ditch my 60mm GReddy dials and replace them with smaller units (currently in glove box but I want them on the centre console).

I'm far too much of a ponce to try and fit them as you have!

Do like the RIPS catch/washer tank. I was just looking at the engine bay yesterday thinking that the washer bottle was blocking the filters and that it'd be better placed where the battery is; thus allowing a decent sized one to be stuffed in the boot.

Good work fella!

Cris, mate someone on here is selling some defi din gages, (oil pressure, oil temp and water temp all in one) thats what ive got in mine fit in the standard place and are way more accurate than the standard ones.

Removed my ABS about a month ago but only just got round to taking pics......

As easy a job as it gets. Sourced a larger M57 R33GTR master cylinder to replace my std M50 and also took the time to strip and free off my front calipers. At least 2 pistons were siezed in each caliper so it was worthwhile. Decided to completely change the brake fluid as well as I did not know when it was done last. I'm glad I did as the stuff that came out was nearly all black
Removing the ABS was a major help when I swapped my turbos over last week. The extra room available for working (especially on the rear turbo) was very welcome.
Also fitted a home made hard pipe kit to the lower drivers side...


Sourced some 80mm pipe (which was a task in itself!) and Samco Extreme hose couplings which are really light with a much thinner wall than std stuff yet just as strong apparently. With a little bit of measuring, cutting and adjustment it went in no problem. Pipe came with a bead but as I had to trim some length from the pipe legs it was removed. Some time invested with a pair of water pump pliers saw a new bead fabricated on each leg, almost to a factory standard which I was pleased with. 1x45deg pipe, 1x90deg pipe and 2 couplings came to about £80 all in IIRC which is a good bit cheaper than branded pipes and the finish is excellent both inside the pipe and out. Well recommended....

Taking her off the road for at least the next 6 months so have time to do all the jobs I've been meaning to do e.g inlet/plenum gaskets; under plenum water/vacuum hose replacement; add cage, seats and harnesses and a LOT more.

Will keep you all posted.

Getting on with it....

Well, yet more updates..

Have had the plenum off for a while now as, in my quest to find my elusive running problem, I decided that it COULD be the TB/inlet gaskets. Got some Tomei TB gaskets and an HKS inlet gasket to replace the std stuff. After getting the plenum off I then got to work sizing up all the hoses and putting in an order to Samco and SFS.
The result..
FROM THIS...


TO THIS....


The original vac/water hoses were in a dire way indeed with the majority being brittle as hell. I took the time to blank off what I'm not using and give everything a bit of a clean up.

Before I put it all back together I thought it would be a great opportunity to fit my oil cooler/relocation kit which I am still in the process of fitting.

Cleared a space just behind the catch tank by moving some bits and bobs and rerouted some wiring. Just need to locate the stat and cooler and plumb it all in. Have a piddly 6 row Setrab cooler which I got for peanuts (despite being brand-spanking new!!) which will serve me fine for getting all the plumbing sized. Will be on the lookout for a monster cooler shortly as a permanent solution. Saw a cracking 50 row for sale on the forum as well but was too late

As for the plenum, I was intending to repaint it black but when I saw it in its natural glory after a particularly harrowing Nitromors session, I decided to keep it that way a la R34.


As for the rest of the jobs I had mentioned above I have managed to secure a Recaro SPG and frame for the drivers side. As for a cage, I have found a couple of companies who will fabricate me what I am after. I WAS just going to hash on and get one made up but, as I am seriously considering club level sprinting as well as random track days for me and the missus, I will need to digest the MSA Blue Book on cage specs before I go and design something which later turns out to infringe the rules. That will come later.

Should have the plenum back on by end of week then I shall turn my attention to fitting some alloy subframe collars I bought of DaveW .

Once thats done I shall get looking for a 6pt harness, adjustable rear bottom arms and perhaps take the time to build myself a fuel system with a bit more capability about it.
All in all its coming together well and keeps me out of trouble

I'll keep you posted.

TT

Scotty mate be careful to get the little collars, (thick washers that slot into the plenum in the right order, apparently they are different lengths and if you mix them up it wont bolt back up tight to the throttle boddies) I think i was just lucky when a couple came out and i put them back in the right place!
Just a thought!
