well thats the fan,oil cooler and front suppprt panel done.
Had to cut more oit of the front.(fuck all between the lights now)
Added some strengthening to the panel
Even just tacked in the front feels stronger and still more to go.
Its a bit tight behind it but i can still get the gan and oil cooler in and out fine.
Can still get ghe grill on and a 70mm rad in and still have all the engine bay left.

love it when new toys arrive......got my EPS coloum today....looks bloody close to the mk3 the mounting bracket is same dimensions its to close to the dash....but might just use the factory cortina bracket anyway.

but it came with cowl...key .ignition.lights and wiper controls......perfect

been pretty slack lately......blame it on the change of seasons and getting dark early....but thought i would carry on with the EPS setup.

so i used all the bungee cords known to man to hold it in place as well as a shaft and wooden ring to help center it in the hole.

once i had it where i wanted i cut up the mk3 mount and welded it all in place so the the suzuki coloum bolts up to the 3 points the factory shaft did.

then painted it and put it back together

then i bolted it all back in to see how it fits....really happy with it even like the way the factory suzuki cowl fits up...

bolted the make do shaft up.

i also contacted a guy i used when i put one in my escort years ago...hes in Ireland ..hes store is closed down now but we talked and i sent him pics and details and some money and he made me a wire in   potentiometer to control it.

so i just need a boss kit and find a steering wheel i like....get a section of steering shaft made with correct ends and its good to go..

i was wanting to have a look at the wipers and see what can be done.

ive never been a fan of the ugly motor bolted to a plate screwed to the firewall setup...

and when i tried it in place .....seems the flacon motor is in the way.........lucky me.

i could have just unbolted the wiper motor and clocked around a bit and drill new hole......but it would still look crap.

so i maked out where the center of the motor kind of needs to be and looked at some option.....

i found i could just bolt the motor under the dash and bolt it threw the firewall using roofing rubber sealing washers

then i just had to cut the rod turn the end around and weld a rod into join them.

much better.....hopefully the heater core i bought turns up soon so i can start making a heater.....or even the bends so i can have a go at making headers.
