Hello all I thought i would have a go at starting a build diary... The story so far…We moved house in the summer of 2014. To my luck (albeit my wife (Jo) would say otherwise) the house came with a car in garage! I had always hankered after a seven type car! After cleaning up the garage - and sorted out some parts this is what i had been left with; Not bad i thought. After a bit of digging around i found this forum and agentzed, Ian & Carole and tazzzzman1 helped me to identify that i had a Sliding Pillar car. The engine turned over as well - yippie. However, i will be covering to an unleaded head at some stage. I do know that i have a fast road cam. So, i made the decision as the car had never been finished to strip the car and start over. I have the V5 and i will at some stage have to write to Ford to verify the age of items (Engine, Gearbox and Diff) for the IVA. Stripping it will give me a chance to recondition and clean bits up and i will be safe in the knowledge i know my car. Most of this work took place in September 2014.
Build video 3 http://youtu.be/lzfzO-LfJvU we start off with the header tank, jump to the interior and then have a H&S interlude and we haven't even reached a minute. We then come to what i think is the intro and helpful information about the design weights (info needed for the IVA). At 12 minutes we are then jumping to the rear axle (cue references to the short legs of 'the wife' and how the car has been built to accommodate fat people! Oh and referring to the cameraman all the time when she is clearly a woman). At 31 minutes we jump back to the front suspension.

Build Video 5 http://youtu.be/gQ1VgRD4_ZQ At a minute in we start to look at the rear panel fitting. 17 minutes we are looking at the donor tank again and has references to the RH tanks - 1 large and 1 small. at 27 Minutes it jumps to the seat back panel. at 41 minutes we are back to the fuel tank and at 42 minutes we start to look at the installation of the engine, gearbox and driveshaft. Joking aside - thank you Ivan Sanford for uploading these on YouTube. I will post more later...
