    Back then I had no notion of ever actually racing this car. My first track day left me just wanting more.
    I love the challenge of building the car and love the challenge of racing it, so the bug has well and truly bitten me:)

    Tonight I managed to get a few hours back working on the car. I had lost a little interest as I was so busy and just couldn’t find time. I got stuck in and started on the rear camber/extension kit.



    For fitting these you need to completely strip down the hubs to the stub axel. This axel wasn’t as hard to remove as I thought and with some help from the blue spanner and me lump hammer, it was off!



    Next part was to cut the first step on the arm to allow the new axel bolt on. This is a different setup and bolts on rather that press in. You can see the setup below.





    That’s pretty much it sorted now. I’ll have to stick back on the hubs later as I want to cheap them all up and put in fresh grease. I’ll also fit new rear discs as the ones on this suffered some damage from loosing a few pads in the past.

    I also started removing all old fuel lines and getting all the sound deadening off the floor. Again the blue spanner and paint sc****r got the job done no hassle. I’ll definitely need to spend more time inside prepping for the paint job before I finish fuel system.





    That’s pretty much it for the moment.

    Track day car

    Got my rear camber kit finished last night. Looks much better now as the extra 25mm track now fills the wheel arch’s.
    Hopefully this little job helps me carry a lot more speed where needed. While at it I cleared out all the old grease from the bearings and got some fresh stuff in along with new rear brake discs.
    Next job I need to really attack is painting the inside of the car as it’s holding me back from finishing the fuel cell and all new braided lines. Not looking forward to this one but I may soon get stuck in..

    Not a project update but just letting ye know that Leinster Trophy coverage will be on Eir Sports next Friday night at 7:00pm

    Loads of great racing action and all very well put together by Irish Motorsport TV.
    I’ll share it here as the car features in this with Future Classics.

    This evening I got some more work done on the rear breaks. After having no luck with decent second hand calipers, I ended up buying one new and getting a refurb kit for the other.



    I had to make up a new copper nickel line for this side as the connection was badly damaged.



    The driver side was in rag order and badly needed refurbishment. Got a nice wee kit with all new seals and piston.



    Nasty looking thing..


    WD-40 grinder and wire brush left it almost like new.


    Hopefully this will help with the uneven rear brake pulling I was suffering from

    Caliper came up well a consistent brake pedal will improve Times and confidence aswell There’s nothing as frightening as late braking into a corner and the pedal going to the bulk head

    Cheers Joe I done the front ones last year and it made a huge difference. Been meaning to get the rears done for a while now. Stopping is important and will be even more important next year
