Got the car back today, brought it home in the first rains since Noah, any hooooooo the car came out fan friggin tactic. The paint is straight off the gun and hasn't been buffed.
The photos don't really show the colour too well but here are a couple of piccies.
Have been on holidays for thre weeks, decided to paint the engin bay today. I wanted something's little different,
The coating is a Kevlar bed liner paint, made for the trays of utes. It give a wrinkle type finish but is extremely hard wearing. Not everyone's cup of tea, but is like it. It will match the rest of the engine bay, black with hints of black.. No chrome..
Ok this week I was working on getting the 2003XR8 engine running out of the car, prior to painting and then putting it in the freshly painted coupe.
I want to run the OEM EFI so the entire drive line from the radiator to tailshaft is ford AU series 3.
First is to install the J3 chip, this disables all the security codes required for it to run as a stand alone unit, it also changed the EECV from manual to auto box, no need for BCM.
I then wired the necessary relays, fuses and diodes, also trying to remove in needed wires so I can make the loom smaller.
If I can get it run on the stand I can then stip down and paint it... Here goes nothing..
Great work, how cool.
Couple of questions:
Why did you mount the mini toilet seat on the intake; would never have thought to doing that.
The ice cream container, is that to insulate the wires- I have used this technique myself so good to see the concept spreading.
Lastly, how the hell did you manage to get all those wires connected to the right device. I struggle with two.
Seriously though, pretty cool you got the thing going.
