Week 7, weekly progress report ...........

Lots of bits and pieces this week....

Firstly, I've finished renovating the Sierra heater box. The flaps have been de-rusted, painted and relined with foam.

I've also acquired from eBay a complete control unit in perfect condition. The Sabre dashboard is designed to take this mechanism, so now I have a fully complete and functional heater and de-mister unit.

I'm currently working on connecting the Servo to the brake pedal and have bought theses parts to help.

I've also managed to garb a bargain M52 gearbox from a scrapyard in Stevenage. Here it is in the cleaning tank.

I managed to get the guys to include the gear selector, stick and chassis mounting bracket The gearbox will be used for more proof of concept work before committing to a new engine.

This weeks plan is to finish cleaning up the gearbox and fettling the pedal box.....
