|Made my gear linkage bottom part, which will bolt to a small tower on the tunnel and hold the gear stick. Just need to work out a nice way to make a clevis arrangement to the round bar that is the gear stick, and then the gearshift will be nearly finished! 😉
Made some blanking aluminum plates for various bits of the manta, and riveted them in place. However, I also borrowed a mates clinchnut tool, now they rock. Got one on order now from http://www.orbitalfasteners.co.uk so we should see millions of panels suddenly get bolted on! 😉 It'll be great for putting fixings in place for fibreglass panels, etc.
Next on the list is a master cylinder for a hydraulic handbrake. Stainless brake lines and M10x1 fittings to do the brake lines. Get the Emerald up and running, as I haven't done that yet since I brought it moons ago! Need a fibreglass 400 boot, and I could also do with some suepsnion soon. So we've almost hit a money point. I'll probably wait until I have the money to buy it all at once, and do it like that. In the mean time it looks like the MR2 will keep me out of trouble for a bit.
Roll on next years snowboarding holiday though! 😀
