Awesome mate. Simply awesome. 8-)

All the 'practice' on the S2 build shows here... it will be the very best S1 in the world.

Trust you have a £100k insurance valuation in place... seriously, this is priceless.

Looking forward to seeing you both next year! :clap:

Excellent!

Open invite mate! Lots of room(s)!

Only problem is that there is NO demand for fireplaces here! :lol:

I am back early May.. probably for 2 months plus! :D Lots of time to meet up with peeps... and also get 170 (via DVA) out of my Elise! 8-)

Happy Christmas! ;)

I had a little issue installing the Odyssey battery in it's new position. Some of the cables no longer reached so I decided to fit an isolator switch for the live and a two post junction box for the earth. I drew up and had a bracket made to hold the isolator. Both that and the junction box are fitted to original riv nut fixings that were used originally to fix the battery tray. I bought two extra cables a live and an earth to go from the battery to the isolator and the junction box. When I tidied the loom I stripped back the live wires (4) from the main loom to give me a neater install. All fitted I have to say it's MEGA. Neat, tidy and works perfectly.

I also took the time to fit and clean the fuse and relay boxes to the new wheel arch liner.

After spending a few weeks working on the front I'd noticed that I had zinc coated the latch the wrong colour and the mechanism was faded. Sacre bleu!

You have put the bungs in the wheel arch liners. Official mod is gaffer tape, lighter and it does fall out or catch the tyres. Bungs belong in your cupboard. The car looks amazing, will you be able to drive it in the wet (or dry)? I would not normally show much interest in a very restored or concours car but this very special. The record you have created will become a reference for builders in the future, indeed, I have referred people to it already.

Excellent work Jonny :clap:
I added a isolator switch in the front compartment too. Recently I needed to jump start the car and realized that it was difficult to place the positive clamp.
The PC680 has only small terminals and is hidden down on the floor out of reach. Do you plan any connector or similar thing to allow jump starting the car?

They are a perfect fit Keith, I can't see there being too many issues. Lol and gaffer tape really wouldn't do :shock: And thanks buddy I'm really proud of the work so far.

I do have a conditioner attached Klaus. I could remove the washer bottle and a attach jump leads to a post on the isolator and another to an earth post in the junction box, possibly.... :? Other then that I'll push or call recovery :lol:

Clean pedals.

Image

Centre consul fitted and secure. New heatshrink tube on the gear stick and a new alloy knob. Ok, it's not quite all stock looking I know but I do have a spare consul and original plastic hand grip. The mats are new and a big thanks to Klaus for the carpet under the seats. What do you think, go OE or keep the little bit of bling.... I like it :)
