  1. 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.
  2. 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 4 http://youtu.be/3kvkZuTl230 We start off with the rear subframe and fixing the floor (the under chassis) and at 1 min 30 or so star to look at the rear suspension.
  3. Oct - 2014 Other than the forum - i have really struggled to find any reference to the build of the car. I have purchased an old S7 build book from Kitspares along with some old catalogues. I am really trying to find reference to sliding pillar suspension. I know this is made up of a myriad of parts. When i was digging around on the internet i came across these. Robin Hood Build Videos on YouTube Build Video 1 http://youtu.be/CoXGacMEi-E Video 1 looks at the following; H7S, changes to car updates etc, at 23 mins he goes into talking about the wishbone set up. My first impressions were "is this guy for real" and can i please get these videos so that i can edit them in some sort of order. But i think thats just me OCD coming out!!! Seriously - if anyone has these on DVD i will gladly do this. Any money then raised (after costs) can go to Charidy. Build Video 2 http://youtu.be/rLjLI2t0r7A video 2 looks at the following; suspension continued and looking at the cycle wings, after 5 minutes he then jumps to the steering rack, 5 minutes later he moves onto the anti roll bar and at 17 minutes he starts lookg at the donor tank (from the sierra) and the rear boot cover. 2 minutes later we are back to the multi bend tube for the cycle wing brackets. at 22 mins in we start to look at the wiper motor (from the sierra), the bonnet and pick up (Bonnet catch). On to the heater matrix and fire wall at 27 minutes. Back to the cycle wings at 30 minutes, at 33 back to the luggage/boot cover at 38 minutes we are back to the cycle wings and plates for the cycle wing brackets. before finishing off at 39 minutes to look at the radiator. I am now dizzy and need a lie down!
  4. 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...
  5. hi, i am really struggling with the order in which to build up the sliding pillar suspension on the 2b i have just brought part built. both sides have been built up different from each other and i don't think either is right! there seems to be a lot of thread sticking out of the top and i can't imagine that it is the right way of doing things to simply just cut it off. any help with this issue would be gratefully received! ideally an exploded view or hand drawn sketch or just an order of which parts and how many washers and where things go would be extremely useful. i also have what appears to be a pair of polybush's and two top hat spacers that seem to have something to do with the suspension and two bigger bearings that haven't even been fitted, maybe they were intended as upgrades or just never fitted but they really have got me confused! again, any help would really be appreciated.
