    Looking great Steve! ... and I can sympathise re the 'kitcar Gods' .... I've still got the blood stains on the garage floor from having cut my head twice on the underside of the body in the cramped conditions I'm working in. It won't surprise you that my girls bought me a construction helmet for Christmas!

    Keep at it!

    That looks like a really nice job Steve, well done. I reckon most of our cars have blood and DNA in some areas.
    And by the looks of it , your 13mm spanner has seen plenty of action over the years !!!
    We all have a favourite spanner, but for some it could be a hammer 😂

    Looking good. Your gear linkage is a lot neater than mine, you will benefit from a longer gear leaver the gears are very close on the Subaru box. Whilst the Flatlands method of running the brake lines in the tunnel looks very nice, I did question David about how he would get his hands in there once it was all built if there was a problem!! and having to work inside an area that has been wax oiled is horrible.
    Keep up the good work.

    I wasn't happy with the way the clutch hydraulic line routed past the other cables on the right side chassis fork. It was too near the Fuel pump and Starter cables, it didn't look good and was a possible MOT fail.

    Anyway I now have a new path for the cable (shown in pic) running outside the other cables, there is a handy knuckle on the side of the gearbox which takes an M8 bolt, I will extend it out ~70mm to secure the line onto.




    Moving to the front of the car, I installed the in-tunnel cable linkage for the accelerator cable and stripped & cleaned up the pedal box, it has been dry fitted, but not with the full linkages in place, so a mini-dry fit is needed before I can bolt this down. For items like the pedal box, I use ACF-50 to protect them prior to fitting, it polishes off with no sticky layer.

    Looking absolutely 'concours' Steve! Love the pedal assembly

    I know I've mentioned this before, but after such high quality work on the chassis, she surely deserves to have similar quality for the body?

    It's just as well my pendant pedals cannot be seen unless you take the seat out and stand on your head
    only Pythagoras can save me now!
