So, we bought a nice 4 door shell with intentions of using it to get into some race series ... The cage come with a cage in which was part of the reason we took it, the other was that it was a very clean shell. Unfortunatly it has a sunroof which we unaware of until we got there, We took some cobbled together suspension and the track wheels to get it rolling -

So, the project was home, time to get cracking with the prep. The first mission was the all time favourite, stripping the sound deadening/matting/foam out. We don't want anything on it that is not needed -

So, after researching the cage and doing some further digging, we thought it may have to come out. Bit of a kicking really as this was a factor in buying it. On the face it was a decent cage BUT after a few tests and questions we made the decision -

Heaters, no use to us, out they come -

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

So with the old cage out, a new cage WAS needed. Spoke to Lee Bullen (toffee) and he recommend his sponsor SW motorsport. Numerous conversions with Shaun of SW and we agreed what was needed/to be done/best way to go .. We opted for one of his multi point FIA/MSA race cages. We specced the cage up with aeroquip T45 tubing. He agreed to be our 2014 sponsor and we shook hands on the deal -

More pictures of cage when the car is rolling again and out the race HQ. The donor heart has also been lifted into the cleaned up engine bay -

The wiring loom has also been attacked since being removed from the donor car, anything that can be removed, will be removed and trimmed down -

While progress is happening, other donor parts and shell are being cleaned up, refreshed, painted and serviced. Whiteline anti roll bars, alloy lower arms, hubs, steering rack, wheel archs... -

A spent 5 hours on the harness and still nowhere near finished. Am not very confident that it will start or even run the car once am finished but if it dose them happy days. A have been told that it will take about 36 hours to chop sort ect and that was off a guy who builds them for a living. But do have a complete harness here to plug in if fails.

How much weight are you planning on saving with stripping the harness down like? Surely not enough to justify 36 pain staking hours and even more  if swapping the harness out is required if it doesn't work! Or is there method in the madness????

All I can say is good luck marra!

Have you felt the weight of a wiring loom ad say about 5-6kg. If a can half it it will be good. Aiming to get the weight of the car down too around 1100-1200kg. Needs as much weight out as possible as when we enter the 22b sprint next year we are in the same class as the likes off Andy F. Toffee. JGM. And a few others with 600+ ponies. We have 400 so the less weight will help. And I have far too much spare time on my hands. And as the car has no intrior at all swapping the harness if it doesn't work will take no time at all.

I see where you coming from there like, is the 22b sprint a quarter mile only or handling circuit as well?

It's a sprint series set up by the 22b forum it's ran along side the MLR sprint. It's a point to point race. Three categories. And fast time wins basically

SO then, clutch fork was put into the gearbox and all gearbox bolted up. Clutch slave, braided line and return spring all fitted up and ready to have some fluid in. Drive shafts fitted but need a new roll pin as one was butchered when removed.

Been cracking on with refurbing various parts and giving them some new paint still in between work, life and other car bits -

The rotors are of the Performance Friction flavour, 330mm x 28mm. New AP fixing kits also, pushed out the boat. The discs are not that much bigger than what I already had -

So with the brakes built up just awaiting some PF z rated pads to show up attention turned to fitting some of the whiteline bushes that came into stock. Mick T ordered nearly £1000 worth of bushes for it and a lot are awaiting delivery and a few are on back order @ factory. We opted for the black series/motorsport bushes which are solid one piece items, road manners are not needed. These are the diff mount bushes -

Bit of a daft question but can anybody tell us what way round the diff cradle bushes will go.
The rubber protrudes the shell 5mm on 1 side and flush the other.

Class work lads!

Did you's have the reversed inlet on the old bomber??

The AP front brakes you's have got are they 4 pot or 6 pot?

Same as what ive got but im after new discs

Were your discs originally 304mm in diameter?

If so what size have you gone to? what size wheels you running? and did you just buy new rotors and fit them to the original bells? (sorry for all the questions lol)

Ap's are the CP5200 series. Just little 4 pots for time being.

The discs were originally 304/305mm. The discs are now PF 330x28mm. The bells i have are slightly pitted around the mounting face but i suspect they'll be ok. Depending on how bad your bells are it may be advisbale to replace. The one's above are not AP beels but believed to be HI-spec ones. AP beels are normally a dark grey colour. DO NOT powder coat your bells, or, if you do clean the mounting surface so no coating is on there.
