    Studs bonded at either. Proper universal mounting for sound isolation.

    Brett, I appreciate your dedication to originality but after a while they will sit on the safety overrider stops permanently.

    Rear engine mounts completed. Just needs a little more tidying and a coat of paint.

    Like your work Christian, just a quick question before you pain that cross member. What are doing for an exhaust system? The reason I ask is that the Alpine boys put the muffler across the back of the car and it is supported off that cross member and the exhaust moves with the engine. Just save you painting it twice if you was going down that route.

    I hadn't really given too much thought to what was going to hold the muffler up, hanging it off the cross member is a good idea but it is going to end up canter levered a bit as the back of the car is some distance out the back on 10's. I'll have to run a cat as well being a modern engine.

    Sorry Chris, but I must have missed it earlier, but what modern engine are you planning to run in the R10?

    Christian,
    Exhaust mount. See #54 Sam's A110 V85 !!!

    A late Range/Land Rover rear mount, welded to a band around a stainless box. I have it on two other cars and it works very well.

    It's a K4M from a Clio.

    Who doesn't like a nice smooth rear end. The corners were the hard bit. Good use of my latest sheet metal tool, a shrinker/stretcher.



    On another note I'm looking at the possibility to a 4 stud conversion. Not that I haven't dropped money on my current brake setup which I could hopefully reuse. Mitsubishi Lancer hubs for the front, or something I can make work, sleeve the stub axles to accept larger bearings. Rears would need to be custom, the expensive part, but not in bulk. I haven't dropped the projected $2.5k on wheels yet, so this may work out cheaper as 4x100 wheels are plentiful. More research and cad modelling required.

    And the modern handbrake lever to go with the modern rear brakes.



    I also put a jog in the gear linkage shaft to I can hang the gear stick out further from the pivot to shorten the gear throw.

    More detail on the handbrake please. I’ll need something custom to run the cables around to pull from behind on the FIAT calipers.

    Handbrake lever came from rally designs in the UK, part number RD6901. I was buying brake calipers at the same time. New ones even, from a mk4 golf. Only 38mm pistons but can run rotors upto 270mm. I'm aiming for for 265 ish.

    Handbrake cable is a wilwood, 330-9371.

    Black bracket is a nut plate I made that holds it down. You could just as easily just put nuts on the bottom. Had to drill some additional holes in the floor.

    One picture shows the cable stops under the floor, the other shows the new holes.







    I thought I get a comment about my 4 bolt hubs first.

    A little CAD (cardboard aided design), fuel tank. Transferred the design to the other sort of CAD, comes out at just over 40 litres. Next step, get it quoted for manufacture, can't make this one myself, then take orders.

    To the point now I should stop making small changes and just send it to a panel beater to get it clean up and sprayed. I just really didn't want to do that until I'd finished drilling holes in it.

    Great build @c.lees... its going to be amazing!

    2 questions though

    >>why not use the Clio 2 litre twin cam 16 valve from the Clio 182? (so cheap now!!)
    >>and how will you handle all this power through the pissy 10 gear box?

    Keep up the excellent work!
