Fitted seat but it really needs to be lower, so on the hunt for lower rails. That or i'll have to get some made up.

Removed yet more wiring from the door to dash area, found a 4" cube of foam rammed into the foot well area.
Wiring will be transplanted into the new mirage to give it all the features it lacks. This slows things a bit as you can not just cut bits it has to be undone and untreaded from the car keeping th clips intac.

rubber and wool lining 90% ripped out from firewall.


Still have to figure out how is best to remove all the tar sound deadening.

Floor use dry ice to freeze it off. Firewall, scrape off.
Then i just used petrol to remove the residue.

Took some sound deadening out but can't be bothered getting the rest out now, just want to get the cage in and deal with weight later.

Got some race tyres turned up ready to be fitted over the weekend :twisted:

Still in two minds about removing the monsoon sheilds along the top of the windows.

Yeah stoked with it, just arandom find on the local ebay ripoff, trademe.

Cheaper than a new one, and a whole buch cooler. Most seem to be in the UK and go for 300 pounds or so. They had a wooden box with them as well but i didn't get that.

A few things fellout on sunday after the rally...

Dash cluster bolted and cabled tied in place.
Electrics still need moving on drivers side.
Image

Heater still there but going as soon as i get a new hose to bypass the water pipes.
Since the airbag controller has gone the gear shifter can be raised far more, should be 10-15cm higher when done.
Image

A wee bit lighter?
Still needs the hazard switch as the indicators run through it, so thats cable tied in place too.
Image

Dash skin will be going to be flocked in black as its a grey one from the 4wd. That now has a nice black dash in it.
ECU and passengers electrics all moved, mostly stripped out what wasn't needed.
Even has some sound deadening on the firewall???
Still more wiring needs to go...

Dry Ice is awesome for removing sound deadening. Definitely reccomend it. Liquid nitrogen is even better.

Well the car is in one peice now and the dash seat etc are all in.

paperwork going to MSNZ soon and all signed off.


Randomly found a 68 deg thermostat in a spare engine too so that may have to go in.

Also scored a cusco super light flywheel to go with the new clutch. Which will go in with the gearbox.


Banner fitted tonight finally

Car now has a WOF and is road legal after what seems like forever.

just need the slicks put on the rims and it should be good to go for a short time.
