The preliminary wheel alignment has now been done, the necessary clearance has been found...just need to see if it needs more neg camber or not once it gets out on the track

Let me know when you are going to the track. My MR2 is just about ready to go back out again. Were you thinking of a practice day at Eastern Creek?
BTW just about all of my panels are now carbon fibre

It's not me, it's you.....

I most certainly will mate, i'll be keen as mustard once the shakedown and tune are completed
 
Im looking forward to seeing what the old girl will do these days...lots of changes since the old 1min 50sec days...and at leat 150rwkw more power than it had back then, should be fun to say the least

With a few hours allocated this afternoon the bottom end is now part of the car once again, thankfully it was a trouble free install...now to get the head built
 
Sean might have some better pics

Looking better and better all the time Phil.
Good to see that you have been able to continue to on progress over the last couple of years.
I have not even touched mine in 2 years. Hope to be back soon thou.
Will you be making the migration to melbourne for SFS2012 ?? Might see you there so see this in the flesh at last.

Wanted:
More time to spend on my RS. But it is getting closer to being done.

Wow! looks fantastic Phil. Good work.
 
I'm not being neg, but the brake lines really do stand out.

Is there any reason, either mechanical, rules or laws that one couldn't route them on the other side of the firewall and through the inner guards? Kinda like hiding the wiring in the engine bay?

It will be good to see some updates when you get chance to do some more, its great to see things taken outside the square
 
Im not sure about SFS, the car should be done by then but whether the run in and shake down is sorted by then Im not sure...will have to see how things progress

The brake lines could probably have been hidden, but I dont mind them, it takes on a different perspective in the flesh. Its a fine line in over doing the hidden work and getting all the colours to balance, thats the main reason I painted the radiator top tank, to try and keep the balance between blue and silver right. Im pretty confident they wont be so obvious when all the other gear goes back in

There's not much more to look at visually at the moment but I have been chipping away at some of the finishing touches. The radiator, intercooler and condenser are now all permanently fitted, the ac system has had a new reciever drier fitted, a little more compressor oil added and the system evacuated then static gassed, and no leaks after a few little joint tweeks!! I can now finish the ac charge once it fires up again.
 
With all the paint, powdercoating and anodising I am anticipating some earth issues so I have made up seperate earth leads for the ac compressor, alternator, block and gearbox. All should now be nicely earthed. The starter motor has been rebuilt with new internal and should be back on Monday ready to be fitted.
 
I've also made up a .5mm head gasket blank so I can dummy fit the spare head back onto the block without any dust or dirt being able to get into the new bottom end, so will refit the head and manifolds next week ready for the old girl to return home again.
 
The head is back at the machine shop with all the goodies that go with it, porting should happen over the next few weeks then for the custom guides to be machined and bigger valve seats to be installed. Hopefully it wont take to long
