Hi Ido. How it has been explained to me by the cert guy.
Any steering wheel airbag removal requires a new seatbelt to be fitted regardless of condition. Apparently the regs. The pre tensioner will still be under the seat but disconnected from the system and not attached the the new seatbelt clasp/latch.
As I am leaving the passenger airbag in it looks likely that side escapes the rules for a replacement seatbelt and will work as normal for the srs system.
Ballast resistor required for airbag removed.
Hope this helps fella, cheers.

Default Enforced downtime patience required!

Hi guys, not good news on my front so remain patient for updates.
Apart from a car tinkerer I am also a goalkeeper coach for kids football. Unfortunately blew my left knee MC ligament yesterday at coaching and laid up in pain with the legs horizontal.
No options on the car other than the wait it out! So this weekend ain’t going to plan!

Looks like the Lynford Christie start on the project has turned more into a tommy the tortoise crawl. Oh well

Ouch!

Perhaps you can spend your recovering time researching finishing touches on line?

I know buying new stuff often cheered me up during my own build.

Heal well, Paul.

Hey thanks Paul. Starting touches may be more appropriate than finishing, but I certainly know what you mean. I will spend sometime hopefully wisely that will benefit later on!
I am not a passive relaxer, so with the wait for the kit and now this it is testing my ying and yang! Cheers fella, appreciate the thoughts.

Any improvements in the knee, or the roll cage, or both?

Hi Barber, thanks for the catchup! Still chugging along with the knee, seeing the specialist on Monday, but am certainly moving around better than I was a few weeks ago.

Roll cage now fits the car, still tight going in but that is due to a slight “crab” in the roll tubes that evidently occurred when fabricating. I have the certifier coming round tomorrow for more photos of it installed and fitment locations so that they can be sent for final structure approval. If all ok I will be cleared to paint/final install and carry on! I could have soldiered on in other areas, but with the disappointment of not being able to get started as I wanted, plus the knee issue it dropped my enthusiasm for a bit. Now getting around more I am happier, just need the ok with the cage etc and I can progress onwards a bit better!
Liking the progress with the roof/glass on yours, should be a fine finish on that one!. Cheers.

Default Contrary to potential beliefs I am still alive!

Hey guys,

Been watching your progress on your threads avidly in the background with very little to say so have stayed silent! Honestly my build has been a frustration coupled with personal and family illnesses so I have stayed well away from working on the car when not in the best frame of mind. Very mindful not to do something twice so better not at all.
The good news is there is sun breaking through the horizon. I have finally got the go ahead and the green light from the certification side over here to proceed. So just having a catch up/set the plan with the certifier on Monday and then I am all go. Unsure what my schedule will allow me to put in time wise, but will make sure it is as plenty as I can make it!
The only progress has been the parcel shelf/new speakers set up in the car and partial wiring extensions started as well as the front alloy bumper resized. Minimal work due the delay but I had weeks where I couldn’t move freely so just left it.
Hoping the roof support/cage will be prepped and sprayed next week for fitment soon after. Once in I can get stuck in all over the build but am going to concentrate on front clam and inside shelf area prior to re-fitting the seats etc.
Hoping for some photos soon to give me some enthusiasm of progress and to get my A into G!

Cheers
