Fitted poly bushes on the axle a few months before you had it so they shouldn't need re-doing I wouldn't have thought

been thinking about protecting the uj from the exhaust manifold and settled on using the exhaust wrap on the bottom half, once the exhaust is also wrapped they will press against eachother 

 

added this too

and a boot carpet, shame to undo the work someone done stripping it out but the need to carry stuff prevails

re wrapped the downpipe to allow the lambda sensor to be added. working round it was tricky to get coverage without layering up the back 

20170311_145437_zpsdppfnrlw.jpg

 

wrapped the upper half too, itchy hands

wrapped the 421 top aswell, was tricky to get it back together as the thickness of the wrap puts the spacing off

also cleaned the brake res

progress has been happening, been chipping away at it as an when i get time

 

repaired and fitted a rocco 16v loom and begun figuring out wheee it all goes. the looms been altered to include a 2nd ecu plug and theres a few plugs in the bay that have nothing to match too but itll work out

 

gotta get the vacuum pipework sorted next and fit the rest of the exhaust

 more progress,

 

tapped the abf throttle body to take the 16v cable holder, never tapped a hole before so took it slow and steady and worked opposite corners

gave me an interesting problem as all 16v roccos are lhd so the cable doesnt fit neither does uk 16v cables so took advice on a mk2 golf 1.3 cable

Did a strip down and final build up yestetday, routed the loom injector lines and other bits to their final places and secured them as  everything wants to be in the same 10" square so its quite busy

 

Been cranking but not firing at the mo. Its and abf on rocco 16v injection so the crank sensor shouldnt be needed but correct me if im wrong

 

Have 12v coming down the king lead but not reacing the spark plugs, new dizzy cap and rotor and waiting on new leads. Fuel is reaching the injectors but not firing so will up the pressure and see if it works
