You chubby bastard.

I've basically not done anything else to it, or the VTS, but I have just spent a fortune with Kam-Racing on moar goodies.

FML

Tonight I'm going to attack the wiring loom and other shiz

Or play GTA with a kebab and some beer, one of the two.

Just in from work.

It's cold, wet, windy and dark, and that's just in the kitchen.

GTA / Beer is looking mighty appealing.

Moar details you say? Pics later on man!

I stopped being a bender temporarily and lashed out to do some more last night, didn't get masses done, but it's all progress in the right direction. I've removed the wiring loom pretty much from the engine bay now bar where it enters the bay with the fusebox and that jazz. I'll tackle that later in the week when I pull the dash out.

Also removed now are the wipers, wiper motor, scuttle, engine bay side dashboard nuts, charcoal canister, drivers front wing, the bottom arm bracket strengthening giblets, spherical gear linkage that I've been going to remove for Simon for about 3 years, Group N linkages, washer bottle, horn, etc etc.

Few shonky pics, it's fair to say the old girl needed some attention for another years ticket lol.









Also I may need to revisit my storage strategy somewhat. I appear to have a lot of "car" to store yet before this ones broken, let alone getting the 106 in here, and the current tactic of "pile it in the corner and don't look" isn't really going to work:



Just waiting for Interlink now, argh.

If its like this, I don't think you can get any uprated mounts without welding in the cradle part from a higher spec model.



I could be wrong?

By way of a generally poor update, yesterday I took yet more things off the VTS before it gets scrapped, all that remains really is to push it out the garage, put it up on stands and drop the beam, fuel tank and struts off it.

Of course today, it's chucking it down, freezing and the drive looks like a muddy assault course. Awesome! I might lob some pics up later, but tbh all the ones I've taken so far, are of a rusty knackered VTS and wiring giblets.

So that was more of a fuck on than I was expecting.

Bit of a milestone now, the saxo is properly stripped, and I get to start work on the 106 now. Feels a bit more like progress. To make up for the lack of pictures, here's a current spec list:

- 48k non sunroof 3dr 106 shell
- 1.6 16v TU5J4 lump
- S2 Rallye Gearbox
- MA Satchshift
- 266mm brakes (currently, also have 283's and Brembo's, depends on wheel choice)
- Most likely 14" S2 Rallye steelies
- Bilstein B8 Dampers
- Eibach -35mm springs
- Polybush rear beam
- 23mm Torsion bars
- VTS ARB
- VTS PAS Rack converted to non-PAS
- Yoko AD08's
- VTS Bottom arms
- VTS Fuel tank / lines and return
- Misc 4-1 Manifold
- 2" Pugsport Race System
- VTS Radiator and fan system
- VTS Airbox + cold air feed
- some strippage

Awesome, cheers for that mate just what I needed!

Not sure what sort of mount is on my actual shell currently, however I'm hoping to pull the engine out today so we'll wait and see!

Packed the wife off to work an hour ago, having a bacon sarnie and a cuppa, off down the pub to catch the brother for an hour, then back to the garage to play cars till tomorrow. Carlsberg don't do Christmas...

Damn you Westwell, damn you all to hell.


So, my engine bay is basically that layout above, and as said, none of my mounts work.

Feel free to pop over to my thread in "Problems and Queries" where I'll be asking people who unlike me, know what they're doing, about it. Meh.


Progress over the xmas break has been good and bad.

Bad - I didn't get anything like what I'd intended done.

Good - The shell on the 106 really is in awesome condition, and I've found minimal corrosion while stripping the front end down. It's also REALLY light in comparison to the VTS. The difference just pushing it around the garage is marked. Bizarrely, there's still an abundance of heatshields etc that are still on the car, so I imagine I'll be able to negate the extra weight of the VTS engine by removing more "no longer needed" things.

Also I have no beam yet, or wheels, and I still need some brakes, unless I use Brembo's and 15"s.

Argh.

Haha just weld the cradle from the Vts.


Some reasoning
  • OEM part on higher spec models
    Allows you to use an uprated mount
    Might aswell while the engines out
    Proper way of doing it
    Just better..
    I'll have the cradle for mine if you don't use it
