Up-date # ?????,,, i've lost count........
Trimmed the dash with the vinyl...some bits (mainly the flat ones) worked out better than others, the clock surround took two goes, a real pain as i used foam flooring underlay to smooth out the little imperfections ,but the glue doesnt give you a chance to move anything ,so it stuck like shit to an army blanket ,and ruined the first attempt...second was better but not 100% happy ...might have a go another day but it'll do for now..
Started the van up over the weekend to make sure all was well......started second turn..great, humms away nicely ,put a 6" Blitz cone filter on which i had lying around...sounds nice but will wait to see how noisy it is at motorway speeds (thats 40 over here )..
While i was putting all the fan cowling back on i realised that the new steering linkages would foul on the cover......
So ,had to re-plan shaft routes AGAIN .....
As it turns out, it will be a much neater job ,mostly hidden by the filter/cowling etc.
Still waiting for matey to make up the shaft extensions i need...mates ..kuhhh
So today, final fix on the steering wheel/shaft , dash innards,wiring..and had an idea of using the old hot/cold intake flap (mounted in "your" pass. footwell ) to feed cold air to the heater,so i wont need the fan on all the time , plus i managed to rig up the control vacuum switch on the original cluster to operate the flap..cool...
Wont be long now...
How YOU doin Andy.......?
HEY..i'm maybe dyslexic, but thats how dog made me............
