Not much to update at the moment.
Having to change the pedal assembly back to Sprint Clutch and Brake.

The Wilwood setup just isn’t going to work as I’m changing the steering column to the RX8 item,
As I intend to use the RX8 loom standard ECU for now and the immobiliser.

If anyone needs a Wilwood 3 cylinder brake pedal assembly with brackets,
Hangs off the original brake pedal with support brackets as well let me know.
I’ll also post photos later.

Reconditioned Servo and Brake master cylinder via Club Spares thanks also to Alun.

Now have a steering bump gauge so can also finalised the steering rack position.
Spare set of stag wheels also collected which will be fitted with the Toyo tyres.
Once I’ve decided what colour diamond cut and Gloss back or something else?.

Many hours spent getting the Steering Rack (Escort Mk2 Quick Rack) in the correct position.
Using the Bump Steer Gauge and repositioning the Rose Jointed track rod ends.
Extra support also made to support the rack more.

Thanks to Alun for the Club refurbished Master and Servo.

Feels like a major hurdle passed.
Couple more plates to fabricate then seam weld the subframe fully.

Uprights and suspension arms all removed and will be cleaned and painted.

Bit of update.

Having to remake the offside engine Mount.
Which I thought I would have to anyway.

Going to be more under the exhaust Manifold rather than sticking out the front.
Which should balance the engine better especially if I have to pull the gearbox out for any reason.

Progress to change the offside engine Mount further back and inline with the nearside.
This was done as it would be easier if the gearbox had to come out.
The log exhaust manifold also allowed a bit more clearance now the Steering rack is in its final position.
Still needs a bit of fetterling and possibly a couple more gusset’s.

Downside I won’t be able to use the RX7 rotor housings. (Extra Exhaust Ports).
