    Thanks Ad, I suppose he has not crapped on them and may be laying low? BTW those brushes, was advised they are the same today so if you get some I will fix you up for them. Ideal time to do it with the plastics out.

    Is he excluded here?

    I'll get some brushes ordered up. Don't think our mate would get a word in here anymore.

    Looks like you've got some momentum going.

    I see he hasn't flogged your Casette Radio.

    Next issue, how does this fit? The plastic is broken where it goes and I have no idea of how it mounts?

    Bottom part (as per picture) slides in the fuse catch thingie and should stop at some point. That is the lock.

    Hang on.

    PS. Went back to your picture on the last page and looks like you have a lock already for the fuse board carrier. Not sure now. Yours is an early dash, mine has been changed to a late one, hence it has the lock you're asking about.

    Yes I suspected this, part came from ebay. There is a fixture that has broken on this replacement dash, mine was fine so now I need a picture of the first type dash to know what to do, might ask the maggot for mine back?

    This is the broken piece,

    my mods sit alongside, good use for pieces of PVC

    Serves to strengthen it well. served for a number of years so far. Its matching parts on the lower are what gave this away as well as the glovebox closing correctly, mine never did.

    Bye bye tachymetric relay hello a self controlled self centred ECU (unloicked GTI6), removed power and tacho wiring back through the loom, rewrapped it up and put the driving lights relay up with its friends, the fan relays. Will make a sub board to allow the remote mounting of the relays and put the dash back together.

    BakerBM silicon oil pipes which are a lot better than the old dry cracking oil soaked originals.

    If you are fitting the relays to plug-in bases (you should) most of th relay bases have provision for clipping together. So the relay array ends up as as a long strip of bases. If you get this style of base, you may well do away with a sub plate.

    Stick'em together with some urethane and they don't move.

    Yes, the Narva relay sockets aren't too bad. $8-9 each.

    A used 306 loom is even better, the relay box they use has two fuses and space for four relays, thank you both for your suggestions but Mr Peugeot came up with the box, four clips, two fuses and a rubber grommet. Wires are just too short to fit to the battery distribution so will makeup a sub board fused off the main. Good use for spare fuses too!

    Regards to all.

    I get bases, with loose crimpable connectors for around $3.50 each. I usually replace the supplied connector with silver flashed contacts.

    Spare fuses came into use today, Wire J1 goes direct from driving lamps to alternator, will put a 15 amp fuse in line and wire it to Battery distribution. Tidier and less wire going everywhere.

    Now to fix the flasher, leds everywhere and its double flashing, off to jaycar I suspect. Onto gluing dash.

    It would not have got this far without the help of many, yourself included. Its part time at best, my objective is one thing per day, the dash is the hardest after that faggot ripped out the instruments to get to the lower half to steal it.

    The replacements he left are all glued up not a pale of its former self sadly but the engine and gearbox will make up for that. Can't wait to drive it!

    This weekends progress, wiring and finding where things come from and go to. Drivers wheel bearing has a wobble so it goes back for replacement.

    Leds everywhere, led flasher cobbled in and working, great lights, everywhere apart from rear fog and dash bulbs

    Do you have the driveshaft tight. The wheel bearings will wobble if not under load

    Yes <Adrian, they are tight, passenger is fine but drivers wobbles when tight, did and undid it three times to check.

    Cranked it over, in a bit of curiosity, timed it over 12 months back, gave a heathly sound, oil circulating which must be good.

    Inlet off for modification, 2.5cm out of the bottom and a few other cuts and welds, brass bushes into gear lever feels like a square cut race box now!

    Tank out tomorrow for cleaning, new fuel pump as the other one was stolen of course, check the fuel lines and except for the exhaust its almost ready to go as long as the inlet comes back.

    Surprise surpise the tape player resisted the faggot and still plays, midnight oil whilst I work!

    Magdick is still refusing to give me back my cash, thieving lier he is, self absorbed in his own world denying everything yet crying over the loss of all his tools, good on inspector plod, the prick deserves everything that comes to him. Even denies being a bikie stupid idiot.

    Better yet a j4r block painted bright red turned up, this was put away for after this project is on the road, a good motor, Richards lower end, good block, head of original donk and back in it goes. Happier days.
