New Project Update 20th March 2003
The engine management loom is now nearly complete. All I need to do is crimp on the Amp terminals for the connectors. I will hopefully borrow a tool to do this.
My panels (boot, bonnet and front panel) are at the fibreglass shop having moulds and then final items made. I can then make the mounts for them on the chassis.
In the meantime I have stripped down the chassis for final welding and work. I am doing all the jobs that I could not do when the car was built. While I stripped the car I was checking I had the correct length bolts, if not I was making a note of the required size. Welding the frame is difficult trying to get into do every weld.
I will have to reassemble certain parts of the car to make the mounts for the panels.
I also weighed the bare chassis / roll cage / spaceframe. 155 kgs.
I am also taking in small parts for anodising, plating and powder coating. Hopefully the company that is doing these will be able to handle the blasting and powder coating of the main chassis.

I then drew out all the junctions, lengths (actual size) and what wires
I then had to thread each wire through the sleeving.
Many places in the loom required me to join many wires together,
These show two breakouts formed. Below is the unshrunk breakout.
For other splits in the loom such as before this 7 way plug
When stripping down the car I checked the requirements for each bolt.
