The only connector to the main car loom and I think it should be the same

Hopefully I can get enough air movement into the wing into this oversized side mount intercooler wink laugh
click to enlarge

Brakes almost ready for fitment, just waiting to receive 3L GTV hubs as it's cheaper then buying new 5 Stud flanges and wheel bearings to fit to the coupe hubs.

OK, been checking routing for an intercooler, seems side mount is the way to go as front mount is almost impossible to fit without mutilating the bumper.

Need to find another water bottle for the washers as it's right in the way here.

Front mount possibilities seems a no go

Plenty of space for the SMIC down there, will need to sort a decet air pathway for it.

Been working on the hubs and suspension today. Even if I'm a disc short :lol:

Fitted the 3L v6 hub with a newer wishbone, fitted brand new track rods and ends these are for a 20vt coupe from my 155 project. The abs wire was cut by the breaker so I'll splice it onto my existing sensor wire.

Fitted the coilovers from my 155 project. Need to get 155 top mounts as gtv ones are different. Also need coupe driveshafts, the donor had them but I had no means to get them off.
click to enlarge

Old hub with tre, wishbone and driveshaft.
click to enlarge

Brake installed with braided lines.
click to enlarge

OK both sides are complete apart from driveshafts and top mounts smile brakes in and bled.

Fitted my Sparco in with my new harnesses, will get a black sparco someday smile

After a blowout driving back from Goodwood, I also managed to crack a rim so I've been off the road since until now smile

Bought Bridgestone RE070 tyres 225/45R17 and had them wrapped around OZ Super Turismo Le Manns editions 7.5J 17 in graphite laugh
