The LT77 gearbox cover doesn't fit the auto gearbox, so we have to fabricate one from 2 old LT77 covers.

Awesome; planning on fabricating an r380 tunnel; what did you use for the seams?

Hi, I've TIG welded the two halves together. For the bit on top I have used rivets. I have used seam sealer.

Our customer thinks an Ashcroft auto transmission console is too expensive. So we will have to make some kind of console ourselves.

We had to make a new engine loom, because the discovery one doesn't fit.

Looking good.

nice neat transmission tunnel too. There's far too many bodged horrid looking ones out there. yours is nice and simple, using the trinket tray as a base.

Out of curiosity, why do people use foam seal tape between the body panels on the floor? What is it supposed to keep in / out?

It is not really necessary but maybe it keeps some noise out...

Keeping water out too. as the "lip" on the bottom of the bulkhead is rarely flat and true. and there's so many varying levels of bits of metal (the aforementioned bulkhead bit, then the side sills, the front edge of the seatbox)


I don't use that tape, but tigerseal or any other similar body panel sealer. bang loads of that in there, and it keeps all the water and draughts out. OK might be a PITA to dismantle, but hey, how often does one take the floor and seatbox out?

Ready for collection!

The customer has come to view the car last Friday and is very satisfied.

On to the next project, a 1984 110 softtop with TD5 conversion. I'll try to post pictures of that project in a new topic!

Best part of this thread is that in a month you can watch the rebuild take place.

Amazing!

I haven't even cleaned out the garage in the same amount of time and all I have to do is move boxes around.

Great job!
