Build Diary Wed May 09, 2012

Well its been a while since the last update post (No Slacker comments Steve!) it seems to take a lot longer doing the smaller bits and bobs than doing the big stuff!! Anyway here goes in order of completion to the current day, since finishing the rear lights off I’ve:-
RE-built the driveshaft’s with new boots and cv joints;
Image

Built a front alloy bulkhead to mount the brake reservoir and pipes to and made up all the fixed solid brake pipes;
Image

Built the rear caliper adaptors to mount VW rear calipers to Suzuki Front hubs;
Image

Fitted the rear disks to the hubs and installed the calipers;
Image

Image

Serviced the front calipers (Full big red kit) then fitted the front disks and calipers;
Image

Image

Made all the braided flexi brake lines (and clutch line / clutch cylinder mounting plate) and fitted them;
Image

Image

Built the battery tray and mounted it and the alloy battery box;
Image

Image

And then over the last couple of evenings built up the fuel pump pre filter and some of the braided fuel lines (still more to do to finish plumbing the fuel pump;

Next job is to sort out the remainder of the fuel lines the breather valve, then tackle the front hub adaptors and lower arms to strengthen the hub adaptors and give me better KPI!!!
