    Schedule A
    #7....Remove steering lock
    #12...More than 500cc of hot liquid in cabin requires a TOTALLY sealed [isolated container... if coolant pies run through the cabin to the rear radiators the hoses/copper pipes will need to have a secondary enclosure or in the case of copper tube,no joins between the front & rear bulkheads.
    Same rule for in cabin fuel lines.[no joins]
    Schedule 'B"
    #6...Front wheel Drive... Scatter shield.
    #15...2litre oil catch tank.

    rear bulkhead can be clear Lexan

    Yeah Id run the lines under the car though. Any rules that are just directly against the radiator in the rear? Id have no problems adding firewalls/etc.

    lexan firewall to complex to shape.

    Will run a three piece wall(hoop suround 1 piece, top section of hoop and bottom section of hoop).

    Will be foam rubber that is shaped a epoxy resined to keep hold the shape.
    Will use 24k gold reflectant on the rear side to combat heat radiation.
    The top section of the hoop wall will have a cutout and be fitted with a lexan screen to still have some rear view. I know all cars will be behind me so i need it. LOLZ

    r.e the coolingh system i was worried about it being in the boot so I wanted a core that could fir two 16 inch fans. I should have gone for a thiner rad say 22mm thick core instead of the 40. Hope it works anyways that is the main concern.

    So the fire wall is done. Now when the interior is painted I will fit it and epoxy it. Has come up real goo fitment wise.

    The outer section of the main hoop is dead easy and will do it tomorrow.

    Started fitting the interior back in (as i wanted a break from doing the firewall/bulkhead) to finish the wiring and mount the hydraulic reseviors. Will have a hard time finding a spot for the hydraulic handbrake. It is starting to get cramped in there. Any ideas?

    Thankfully I have just the right amount of leg stretch cosidering the pedal assembly shifted the seat so far back. Also it is nice the the column is tily and reach adjustable.

    Anyways some pics.

    So the car is being put back together.

    Engine bay is done. Brake fittings and clutch line is poking through the fire wall. The brake pressure sensors are there as well.

    There are some mega runs in the paint thanks to a fellow PF members handiwork.






    and found this on the floor in the spare room. where to put it....

    So the bastard car is nearing completion. I can't believe it.

    Still aiming for mid December. I will be in like Flin at this rate.

    It is looking tighter than I remembered.

    Wastegate is going to be moved so that it is behind the headlight so that I at least have a place to vent it apart from out the bonnet. What was I thinking?

    Apart from that all that it needs is some little bits here and there and the engine loom terminated.

    will do this in the next few weeks and tune in December when my tuner gets back from Sema.

    The 240 is an interesting tyre, not your 'traditional' dunlop tyre, it's a compound they use in England (make sure your tyre place has them in stock, they are normally a specialty order), it's more of a soft sports car tyre (somewhere between a D11 and D12), the 265 is the d11 compound (i'd say it would be to hard for your car)

    Front of car all done. Just some basic wiring left to do. 60mm wate gate put in a more descreet position. Amazed i could get it to fit in there.
    All the water lines are done front to rear. Cooling system is finished.






    Support for the chassis rail. Not that it needs it but better to be safe.


    Rear baulkhead all done. Top section will have a lexan window to enable rear view.
    Front radiator box and rear exit duct is done. Just have to plub up pipes from the nacas in the rear quarters to the front box.
    Surge tank is done with two 044's for E85.







    Custom sump Holds about a litre more tham than the standard item.



    It should be running in three weeks for sure!!

    So update.....

    Was hoping to get it running this week.

    All is ready to get it running.

    Big hurdle.....motec does not want to talk to the isis system on certain channels.

    Major head fuck....... so I ordered a MoTeC PDM 30 this morning. Should have it tomorrow. Will wire it up next week.

    Man another chunk of cash gone but I love MoTeC prducts. Should have got one from the start and not skimped onit to begin with.

    Seeing as there was a couple of replies.....

    Interior was painted matt black this weekend just past. Have refitted all the interior.

    Have just chased down a carbon blade to make the rear wing and have started making the front splitter....ghetto spec.

    The interior looks so much better in black compared to white.

    attn Ryan, I thought you were getting rid/selling the car?
