  1. Looks like an early S7 judging by what I can see of front suspension and the "chassis rails". 2B dash would be a straight fit but I am pretty sure could be made to work. You won't get anything off the shelf that fits and unlikely to get help from GBS as they try to distance themselves from these models of roboin hood.
  2. In this weeks video I finish off the prep and get to painting the engine bay of the 1958 Ford Prefect 100e in Subaru Mica Red, and boy does it look good! I wasn't sure this was the right thing to do, but in the end the result is exactly what I wanted.
  3. The time has come to remove the pinto turbo from the 100e... With good reason though, I promise!
  4. I don't think so. Think the hope is start again from next month.
  5. 1.6 heads didnt come in an unleaded version, so you'd need to find one thats already had the hardened seats retrofitted. Personally I'd look to buy something like this that is drop in and forget https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/272706867956?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=272706867956&targetid=909953938039&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9045432&poi=&campaignid=10204071303&mkgroupid=104953043274&rlsatarget=aud-629407027825:pla-909953938039&abcId=1145987&merchantid=7260564&gclid=CjwKCAjw88v3BRBFEiwApwLevczqkTAb7V2P7F4oaQg4b56rMFQtIoNy9AkqMCcliPkZneOBsAV9WRoCFfMQAvD_BwE

    Parts clearout

    They definitely won’t fit an s7.

    Parts clearout

    Definitely still got the seats, was actually just yesterday contemplating turning them into chairs for the man cave Lights and gauges I'll have to check, but pretty sure I have them still.
  8. CBS is hideously expensive for most parts! I ordered a few wiper bits this week and the CBS price was over £100, I paid £70 by shopping around and buying exactly the same bits from elsewhere.

    Pretty sure the dax ones are 2cv ones.
  10. In this video we reach an almost Project Binky / Bad Obsession Motorsport level of bracket obsession, just without the engineering and fabrication skills that they have. I did get my welder repaired though and do some welding of brackets in this video too, so there is that...

    I fitted similar to my kit. You need to use the jeep mounting frames which you can buy new for about £50, on a seven style car though they will look pretty rubbish in those frames.
  13. Don't think you need the vin plate for the donor car, just the V5.
  14. Ignition timing ok? Is there a fuel cut off on the carb that needs 12v when ignition is on? That caught me out on a couple carbs.

    Which Donor Car

    Donor car or not it will still need an IVA inspection and to be correctly registered with DVLA.
  16. Fitting Cosworth 4-pots to the 1958 Ford Prefect Turbo Pinto FINALLY! It seems both an eternity and only 5 minutes ago that I called Steve Walford Motorsport to discuss modifying these calipers to fit the kit far setup, and then just after they were done plans changed and we started the ball rolling in the 100e instead! How does this relate to the 100e? Well we carried the uprights over from the kit car, and the wheels, and so the brakes should drop straight on just like we intended, and boy, are they gonna look good!
  17. I would recommend finding a tuner you want to use, and then buying the ecu they recommend as not all tuners will tune all ECUs, or will be able to get the best from an ECU that they are not familiar with. There are many good options out there, at all price points. I see you are in Wolverhampton and as such I would recommend Steve Walford Motorsport in Birmingham for tuning, a number of people here have used him, and I personally work very closely with him on my own cars. He generally prefers Omex ECUs and can supply them, but there are also others he recommends. - http://swmotorsport.tk/
  18. one way valve doesnt stop the evaporation. Best fix is an electric fuel pump.
  19. Fantastic job. Can’t wait to have a look in person.
  20. I like the look of them Andi
  21. Second everything richy says, and just to add, I dont think they are actually that much heavier than a pinto, so wouldnt be worried about the weight.
  22. This weeks video we take the first step towards the final build of the 1958 Ford Prefect Turbo Pinto project car build by removing the Volvo 940 axle and giving it the clean and paint we should have probably done months ago! While we are at it though we fit brand new brake discs, refurbished Volvo 2 pot calipers (Thank you again to Richy for the super refurb!), and a new handbrake cable from the ever helpful team at https://www.skandix.de/en/ As I was doing all that, it seemed silly to put the Volvo steelies back on, so I finally get round to fitting the custom wheel spacers from superforma and try the RenaultSport Clio 197 17' alloy wheels on for size. Sure they need a refurb, but man do they look the part! Cannot wait to get them refurbished and fitted with the bigger tyres we are going for!
  23. For anyone interested, eurodragster have done an article on the Modified 100e Challenge that I will be racing the Prefect in which includes a small write up on each of the cars http://www.eurodragster.com/news/features/modified_100e/default.asp
  24. I have a sierra master with pushrod if you need one.
  25. Hopefully won’t be having to do that, not on this engine anyway.
