Hi All, 

So I started my journey to conquer the forum posts in August, knowing I couldn't use my fathers knowledge I set to work on engrossing myself into all the threads and trying to piece together everything that I would need to help me, it feels like I've blinked and now we're at the end of September, my little girls back to school, I've got a massive beard and I'm not really sure what day it is, suffice to say the help and knowledge on here is great (though roughly working out I'm still only about 30% through some sub sections they're huge! 

 

I wanted to show right from the start, so hopefully you guys can point out where I've been stupid and hope I don't prove wrong the old 'there's no such thing as a stupid question' saying 

I'm no mechanic or have completed anything like this, have just had a massive love for these since a young age with my dad's Robin hood. So.. Here goes nothin'

Looking forward to following this. Norfolk seems to be a bit of a hot spot for new members so I think there will be a bit of local interest in this as well.

Looks like a great project - you're probably hoping for another lockdown to give you an excuse to stay in the garage 🙂

I'm going up to Norwich this weekend - my in-laws live in Wroxham 🙂

This project is a good place to start, and there is always someone one the forum willing to help out.

Luckily run my own business that can continue, so can take off some time, but I've already found myself knocking off too early so need to keep check on that. 

Nice little place out in the sticks here, just down road from Wroxham at RAF Coltishall base. 

It does feel like a good base, just a bit more rust under the seat panels than had hoped for, cleaning it all back so can then start cutting out and replenishing

 

Would like to ask about the sliding pillar set up.. 

Living close to Snetterton I've been there in cars and my R6 and would definitely want to be able to take this on too, what I would like to get an understanding on is the true difference in upgrading to double wishbone, understand will be recommended that it's better but with kit at £650 odd plus I'd need to get this done for me are we talking seconds a lap and poles apart on the road?

Small update on progress

 

I have Bob Archer from mobiletuning norfolk coming tomorrow to do a full test on the engine and equipment as it has a unknown race cam and various upgrades completed by iJem engines, we can then see what we're getting from the girl and plan next course. 

The speedo cable is lovingly looking at me in the face rather than doing its job! Upon reading up I will cut a good hole into the tunnel.. Will this likely be able to fix back into the connector or would I need to get a new one ready for it? 

I've also started stripping back all the body work so that I can get it ready to wrap
