Well I feel a lot better now.....damn those paint fumes....

Engine is back in, just got to finish connecting the coolant, engine loom & exhaust up....only 1 1/2 days behind schedule  Crying or Very sad 

Tmrw I shall be mostly stripping the interior out to bleed the brakes....just don't ask  Embarassed 
Hopefully replace the front wheel bearings (again), then rebuild the front suspension...

Hope the weather holds out...

Off to bed said zebedee...

I can't wait to see Walle's latest mods. :-)

I've replaced the fluids in 'K' tonight so she's all ready (fingers crossed)

Sorry to disappoint James, no "mods" yet....

Combination of time & money in the wrong ratios..... Crying or Very sad 

Plus SHITE weather, long hours & doing stuff on dad's Bsa has put Walle on a backburner.(untouched since Stourport).

Engines in & all plumbed in...put battery on tnt & everything works as it should... Would have tried starting but no oil filter & oil in yet...g/box also needs oil in.....once it's running I can put radweld in to sort the hole in the rad out...

After using 2 eggs to seal rad at Stourport, I've had to put up with the HORRENDOUS decomposing egg smell all week.... vomit 

Brakes partially bled, just wheel bearings to sort, then I can get on with putting the interior back in  Rolling Eyes

After the day i've had.....i might be bringing me tools with me on saturday  Evil or Very Mad 

Picked up a new oil filter, front wheel bearing, CV gaiters & brake pads to get the little shite rolling....

Fitted the aforementioned items only to find the chamfered washer that goes behind the wheel bearing nut, is worn. So when locking the bearing up uber tight, the washer locks on the shoulder of the driveshaft, resulting in a loose bearing assy...(prob why it failed on the way back from Stourport  Crying or Very sad )

Also tried to bleed the brakes, only to find a seal has gone in one of the front callipers  Evil or Very Mad .

Tried to wire up the power steering ecu & speed controller, but the torrential rain was cooling my soldering iron faster than it could warm up  Rolling Eyes .

Done even ask about trying to start the engine...... banghead  

Looks like a trip up to Mk3rob's patch first thing in the morning to Mini Spares.... Crying or Very sad.

Why do i set myself these stupid tasks ? Going to bed to sulk.....

Kit cars and rallying share the same ethos.  The job just has to get done in the time available, whatever the task may be. 

It's that 'get the job done' attitude that made the British great :-)

OMG time has flown by since i did anything on Walle....time to roll the sleeves up.....

Current plan is to redo the rear end, after 2 yrs sat on the drive since getting most of the front end done, i feel the need to start somewhere else.....

The before Pic....when it was 1st rebuilt...

Then think of 3 yrs sat on drive & uncovered......time to strip it all out...


Some cutting & rewelding...


And then some carpentry...


Made these a few months ago, & nearly forgot what i was planning to do with them



Time for a bit more welding...can you guess what it is yet...



Bit of filler & primer...


Clean & re-treat the chassis...


Bit of yellowish paint thrown at the back today....doesn't match, but respray planned for later in the year...maybe....


Exhaust exits fitted....


Tomorrow i'll be mostly woodworking...Anyone know what welding rod to use for Pine?

Then just need to design & make the new fuel tank, join the twin exhausts to the engine, sort out fuel pump & fuel sender, sort out world peace, make side greedy bars & finally sort out world famine......job done...
