66GT’s Rat Mk 1 Cortina Build


Recommended Posts

Made up a dolly out of some Unistrut I had and found 4 decent sized castors as well. 2 have brakes and the other 2 have swivel lock pins. Probably a bit overboard however the wheel track width is the same as the car so no problems getting on and off the trailer. Rip the suspension out this week and get it on the dolly and over to the blaster next week.

Bits finally turned up for the engine bay. Been flat out so hopefully get it onto the dolly this weekend and off to the blasters. Dropped some of the dash instruments to Robinson’s to get checked over and have sorted the wiring loom out. I’ll trial fit the loom before I wrap it in tape so it’s not a biggie to make any changes. I have used 3 looms to make 1 to suit the dash and engine.

Just been sorting the dash today. Got the plastic instrument binnacle fitting mint so now to cut out the surplus metal off the std dash to get all the instruments fitting. I’ll take out the original dash frame in the car and swap it over with this. Pretty easy job to swap as just drill out the spot welds and fit this and the plug weld. About a 3 hour job all up.
