Good work. give me a call if it comes off as I now know the better ways of doing things and finding bits. The funeral director on the Gold Coast for plastic chroming for a start.

And if he doesnt tell you who he uses, ask a bloke who's uncle is a funeral director on the Sunshine Coast and find out it is Emro's in Caloundra.

16 September 2017
Through the early part of the week:
Painted the relay panel.
Installed the radiator and hoses.

Approaching the middle of the week:
Checked the starter relay and dizzy voltage using the key. That is, when in the on or start position these wires are shorted to positive 12 volts.
Installed the horns but there is something weird regarding the connections. Figured out what it is. The dark green is always positive- confirmed that. The black is the switched side but need to understand how the steering wheels bits interact to deliver the ground- pushing the plunger in the column did nothing.

Installed the front bumper, adjusted it to fit squarely in the recess and bolted the lower valence ends to the lower inside guards. Looks pretty good




And towards the end of the week and into the weekend:
Slept a lot trying to battle the flu and hay fever.
Continued to confirm wiring works properly which it mostly does. I am chasing what looks like a short to the rear wiring harness but disconnecting this does not reveal a short on either end of the plug. Going back to bed. Sorry about the short and paltry update.

Don't laugh but check the front indicator earths. Back in my young and stupid days. I worked on a few HK to HG Holdons and learned, the front earths are critical to the operation of the rear lights. Don't know why and don't care..

Hi Pete
This flu has really knocked us about. I don't think I have been into the shed this whole week. H has even got it and I have never know her to get eh flu ever. Actually, I did a bit of electrical checking yesterday but that is hardly noteworthy.
Cheers
Jacko

Get well jacko, here's hoping it's the ordinary type and not man flu as we all know how terrible that is...

2 October 2017
After surviving our near death experience with the worst flu ever, I was back to the car this weekend. I was still chasing the electrical earth issue. While tracing the earthing to two circuits, I found the wiper motor was on one of them. Off with the electrical connectors (there are three) to the wiper motor and I connected up a 12v alarm battery to it. Water in the water bottle and I started that sucker up hoping not to see smoke; either from the little battery cables or the wiper motor- remember I did test this some time back. Well bugger me if that sucker wound over just fine and primed up the water sufficiently to spurt it back over the engine bay when the pump is powered- love that! Well, in addition to confirming the wiper motor is not the issue, I now have windscreen fluid.

A bit more checking of wiring diagrams and disconnecting oil and temps senders, I am satisfied it is earthing through the instrument cluster circuit via those senders. But all was not lost, as I found the little nut on the back of the ammeter was loose. Considering this feeds all electrons to the car it should be tight and it now is.

Exhausted (wish he lived this side of the island)

A few weeks ago now, I bought 6m of stainless 2.5inch tube for the exhaust. Andrew, pipe bender owner, offered the use of his machine to bend the tube for the headers to X-pipe. Under the car I head and mock up the position of the x-pipe to the headers. After a bit of fiddling, I ended up with a coat hanger suitably bent to shape.

Over at Andrew’s shed and we set-up the bender for the pipe. Well our first and only attempt did not go particularly well.




The size of the pipe is too big and the wall diameter too thin to cope with any great bend. After checking out a few e-types, I returned home armed with a few tips.

Back under the car and I set-about making the exhaust section. Channelling the exhaust guru that is JBB, I set the x-pipe on an axle stand and lined it up with a cross member. This matches a few cars I have seen on the interweb.

I then adopted a rather comfortable position under the car hoping for inspiration. After waiting a suitable time with no miracles, I committed to cutting pipe, tacking it in place and working from there. There must be a trick or knack to getting the angles right but I don’t have it. β€˜Check four times and cut once’ turned self-doubt into results (plus a couple of hours). Thanks and sorry to H for holding the piece horizontal while I tacked it in place to the flange (yes, I will give her gloves and a helmet next time- how was I to know that hair colour is flammable?). With one side done the other was relatively easy.




The remainder of the bend I had cut for the drivers side was a near perfect fit for the passenger side. I say near perfect as it still required a small pie cut. A couple more straight pieces and I tacked it in.


Before anyone comments:
Yes, I only have gas-less stainless wire.
Yes, I plan to TIG the rest.
Yes, that lumpy bit on the passengers side is my attempt to fill a large gap (larger than I can TIG) prior to TIGing up nice. It will flappy down well and neat.

I love using a welder, even if I am not that good at it.




Hopefully we are now back on track for a finish. Oh, ordered another Mondeo fan shroud as it is a near perfect fit for the radiator core.

You're a day late.. Nice work though..

Did you fully sort the electrickery? You left us hanging by a loose nut!!

Your welding will only get better with practice and patience. And make sure you have plenty of flappy discs on hand..

Nuts, yep it is something you need to do regularly to get the feel of your machine and material.

If there is no smoke after I install the battery, I will then declare no issues but...
