Been spending time working on the wiring loom and I am happy to say that with the exception of 2 wires it is all done but I need to find out what they are first...

Also spent some time out in the garage converting a a/c heater box into a non a/c climate box. Interestingly its quite simple to convert a normal manual box into a climate, just need to drill one hole for a temp sensor and its done and ready to go in.

Also spent a lot of time with my TIG welder in the shed working on the blower inlet, I managed to get hold of the correct unit but it didn't fit so I have had to change the port size, throttle angle, bypass pipe needs adding, removed side ports, also got to add a bracket which attaches it to the plenum. Still some welding to go! Not sure I really like ally welding but I am sure I will grow to like it...

I feel like a crack head wanting a fix. Every time I open the M/U I hope to see an update of this build.

comment made me chuckle

I wish I had more time and money to speed this project along I really do! I guess the next few months will be easier as I get to a point where the work is coming together. Not a bit here and a bit there. It would be nice to start opening all the boxes I have and start fitting all the parts!

Not spent any time on my car over the weekend, instead I helped a friend take an engine out of his mini in the snow - outside...

Managed to mock up all the alloy brackets for the supercharger so I am printing the 3D out prior to sending it off for manufacture

here it is printing on my 3D printer, will get a photo soon when its done printing

bottom part of the bracket printed, will get the top part printing tonight and then glue them together, couldn't print them together as it would have warped due to the cooling of the abs as it prints

Things have been really busy so I have not had much time with the car or time on the car. The underside of the car has been painted in schutz and its looking really smart and clean underneath

Next week the roll cage will be painted and the inside of the car should be painted
