  • The last few weeks have seen the offside strut, hub etc fitted and I measured up for driveshafts, now waiting for prices and delivery schedules.

    Also plumbed in the hydraulic handbrake then bled the brakes and the clutch.



    Pulled the engine wiring harness to pieces..





    to add the extra wires for shift cut and gear potentiometer



    and started on a new switch panel..

    • Still waiting for driveshafts but i've got some bits n pieces done..

      Front brake pipes rerouted, the old way could see them catching on the driveshafts at the new ride height.





      Switch console getting closer to moulding



      Driveshaft support bracket mocked up, will complete it once the shafts arrive and i know its in the correct place.





      and an S1600 spoiler to duplicate

            • Made spoiler 'end fence' moulds



              First one out of the mould



              roughly trimmed



              started prepping the top side of the spoiler for moulding



              trimmed up side and base temporarily attached with tape, forgot to take a photo of the bare base moulding





              Switch panel trimmed and rivnuts glued in.



              cut out for removable panel



              installed awaiting switches.

                      A lot of little finishing off jobs, underseal arches, paint floor underside, make a fuel tank cover etc and one major job, build the engine, which requires some custom bits as there's nothing really available for the 1.8.

                      • What's the thoughts behind sticking with the z18xe? Is it going to be for competition use, or as an epic track day car?

                        • Competition use, if I put in a z20lex (which parts are cheapish and available) then I would end up in the same classes as imprezzas, evos, m3s etc. If I build the z18xe with a slightly reduced capacity of 1760cc then the opposition should be more of a level playing field.

                          • Clever thinking! Are you thinking of putting it on ITBs or maybe going turbo? I'm guessing n/a.

                              • Finished the last spoiler mould, unfortunately there was a reaction with the spoiler so it needed a little repair.



                                Then pulled the top section


                                and trimmed and fitted it all together





                                The seam across the back shouldn't be so noticeable once its been flatted and clear coated
