Does the exhaust wrap stuff work well? I've always reused old three layer shields and just cut bashed and riveted them into shape.

The nimbus shields work better in my opinion.

Took the engine and box out yesterday to changed the Torsen type B for a Quaife ATB, sorry didn't take any photos. Today's jobs were re-fit the driveshafts and try and sort out something for the big hole in the bulkhead so the wiring could come through it so this is what I've come up with,

And proceeded to thread the wiring through a large grommet that I found in a random box,

Just need to remember where all this lot,

I also re-fitted the exhaust after having a small hole welded up in the back box & managed to get it a little tighter under the car but this is now causing the gear linkage to catch on the exhaust in 1st & 2nd , not wanting to hammer a dent in it, so I'm thinking of modding my linkage like Will16 has done and cutting the round part that the gear lever goes into off, welding it to a plate then bolt the plate to the floor which will raise the linkage up about an 1" or so.

Evening's, dropped a couple of piece's off at my painter mate's and was hopefully picking up some painted piece's that I had dropped off b4 Christmas. He said he was quiet and they wouldn't take him long to do! I said no rush with working Christmas & new year then week off then 1 on, towards the end of January I'm off for 2 weeks then will be fine so I thought!!!! nothing has been painted as "I said there was no rush" FFS. So I have told him that I want the piece's that are going black (small brackets and the like) which will allow me to re-fix front brake lines, ECU and a few other bits. So I've been sorting through boxes of bit's trying to find things that I've put in a safe place until I need them found a few things that I did remember getting as well. Anyway enough ramblings, I refitted a couple more bits, rear windows, rear roll cage, rear carpet underlay and rear seat belts, hopefluuy my painted bits will be ready Tuesday

I have a small pocket book that I write stuff down in that I need to order for when I come back in the house, but always forget to bring it back in! So I installed internet into my garage and take my tablet with me so I can order the bit's straight away
