If Basil Faulty had this car, his life would have been much less stressful...

Hey there,

some more progress:





Drivetrain ready for installation.

Rear subframe with stock antirollbar and new coilsprings



I will fabricate a longer shaft between knuckle and Hilo.





You can spot the shocks-tower, made from some 63,5mm exhaust tube
















What a beauty

@add gee: it is welded to the double layered inner wing part, that supports the top rubber (bump stop). I could make up a bar between both towers...

But first i need to solve the master-cylinder mounting, as it doesnīt work that way, because the throttle body is hiting it.

cheers

Happy new year



The Master cylinder + Servo has a new place with a custom linkage.



I ordered a radiator and started the plumbing. Expansion tank + heater is next on the list.





Shifting linkage from a Honda Vtec.



I wondered what a tiny tiny throttle body was fitted..
...a Honda D-Series Throttle body with 56mm was my first choice.



Made a adapter on the mill.





I have to get the throttle sensor to the honda item. Just some small machining on the lathe/mill...

Right now I am creating a disc brake for the rear.

The MGF brake calipers didnīt fit, i found a pair of type R Honda rear brake calipers... i give them a chance!

cheers

Hey,

some more progress on the Inno i4



Made up a flange/plate for the intank fuel pump.



Welded a tiny catch-tank underneath the tank.



Some machining on some superhard-alloy for 2 disc-brake-caliper-mountingplates.



Machined the drive flange to the correct dimensions.



Some shrinkle paint on the mounting plates.



MGF rear discs machined to match the back of the the hub.



Honda Type R- Rear callipers.




There it is, a disc brake conversion on an ADO16



Installed the 14" Steel wheel with the 185/55r14 Rubber.





Thanks for looking

Thank you guys!

The first Time on 4 matching wheels.









Swapped the steering wheels (V8 London Taxi/ Inno i4) so the Hellebore 3 Spoke wheel is in the right brand car.



The first MGF Seat was bolted into the Inno. The red-leather is kind of matching the old stuff.



Yeah, wiring loom! The plan is to keep the original electric from the Inno, just add the Engine loom and connect the gauges, OBD2 Socket, hot wires etc.

cheers

Thanx Add_Gee

Is there somebody in the UK who has a spare Exhaust Manifold whith a Turbocharger for my K-Series?
:P



I extended the Throttleshaft to bolt on the TPS from the MGF.

I made up an adapter:







It is 15° movable to finetune it to the right position.




The Speedo was hiting 90km/h while standing still.. WOW



The little springs and wires were broken...
..got 2 Spare-Speedos from the uk.

cheers
