Couple of deliveries today, single skin mk1 bootlid from ABS, fit doesn't look too bad, going to mount it on original hinges and locking bonnet pins



And a longacre switch panel



Currently tidying up the wiring and finding places to mount the relays and stuff then need to decide on which dash I'm going for, slowly getting through the big list of jobs

Had a bit of spare time this afternoon at work so started making a box for mounting my switch panel. Plan is to mount it on the rollcage bar that runs across the roof above the windscreen. Started off with plans of taking loads of photos of the various stages but ended up getting stuck in and forgetting to take any after the first one as usual till I was finished..









Still need to finish it but it doesn't look too bad considering it was rushed..

Been playing about with the bootlid this week trying to get it aligned properly, think this is the best I can get it


Also been welding up the holes in the bulkhead that I'm not using, my Ecu and all that is inside behind the dash and the wiring for the engine comes through just above the toe board, trying to keep the engine bay side of the bulkhead as clean as possible, even moved the wiper motor inside so I'll hopefully manage to just have the clutch and brake masters up on the bulkhead and nothing else

Took it a drive round the yard today as well, forgot how small it is till I parked it next to a discovery, looks bigger sitting in the same corner of the garage for years

Jumped on the bandwagon and went for mk2 golf indicators instead of the standard clubman ones



I'm using a trailer plug to wire up the front lights, is one plug acceptable to run all the lights using the same earth or do people normally use a plug for each side?

One plug for all is fine. Try to put it out of the way from spray off the wheels to stop water ingress.

After being messed about with lead times from kirkey for my other seat and waiting 3 months for them to then say they don't know when the seat will be ready I decided to get some Mirco rs1 seats, just hope they fit in the car..

Started to fit the drivers seat, its tight at the b post and the head support touches the cage slightly and I had to cut half the crossmember out but it's the best position I could get it in, might need to stagger the passengers seat slightly to get them both in

Looks good. Crossmember will need beefing up again but sure you're on the case. Have you tried sitting in the seat in that position with crash helmet on and headlining in the car? A set of seats I had in mine a while back on my first trackday my head was rubbing on the roof over the bumpy parts of the circuit and was quite distracting!

Thanks. Yeh I'll be putting strength back into the crossmember. That isn't the final position for the seat, it's been lowered down and slightly reclined since that photo, still trying to sort out the perfect position but with the head supports and the rollcage in the way it's quite a struggle getting decent legroom for the pedals
