Cheers Mick.
Not sure about Stoneleigh this year I'm still having a lot of tests done on my heart, so if they all go well, I'd love to be there.

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

Had a spare couple of hours so fitted my new handbrake cables today. I now have a handbrake again haha
Afterwards I was a bit restless so started making the adjustable brackets for my headlights
I got the idea for them from Rick at www.kitcarz.co.uk

They are a two piece bracket that utilizes the OEM bracket underneath the headlight
The top part is basically a T piece made from tubing and flat bar, this bolts up to the OEM bracket
I measured the centres of the threaded holes on the OEM bracket and put that measurement onto the flat bar

Then found the centre and drilled another hole for the tubing to fit into, then welded that to the flat bar
This left me with the screw holes, purposely oversized so to give me some adjustment left, right, forwards and backwards

For the bottom part of the bracket I cut some square tubing, drilled a hole for some 10mm studding, and welded that together
Once I have removed my replica lights I will  be able to measure and cut the square tubing to the correct length
I will also cut the studding and round tube to the correct length

So now I have some brackets that can lift/lower the lights to the correct height using the 10mm nut ( the second nut will be a locking nut )

I will attempt to fit these after Stoneleigh  Shocked

Mick
To be continued..........

Hi Mick,

did you end up having to move the pedals?

Hi Tone
No I didn't have to move the pedals
The bit that was rubbing was just to the right of the accelerator, as you look at it from inside the car

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

Had a bit of a head scratching moment yesterday.
I had noticed that my tailgate had dropped backwards past the rear wings by a good inch +
Not a problem, the hinge bolts must of come loose and moved backwards. I'll just push the tailgate back and tighten the bolts up again.
Well, after trying and it not working, I remembered that when I got the tailgate into the correct position, I welded the washers to the hinge, to make it easier to refit if needed. So no more movement.

So how in the hell has my tailgate moved. The hinges or the tailgate wouldn't of stretched HuhHuhHuhHuh

Anyway, I removed the tailgate, checked everything for breaks or just movement, nothing wrong here, I then ground off the welded washers, elongated the holes, not necessary but just in case, and refitted the tailgate.
Job done, fits perfect again, but still can't see how it had that much overhang past the rear wings

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

My genuine F360 one does that (on the standard extreme/volvo hinges). Holes probably too elongated. End up pestering the wife to give me a hand.

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

This is probably one of those decisions that I will come to regret, but I’ve decided to sell my car.

The reason for this is that I have bought another car and can't justify having 3 cars.
Lots of genuine Ferrari parts fitted, I even have a pair of new, not fitted but if the price is right will be included, Genuine Ferrari Xenon headlights
Car was painted by the Legend that is JD  Grin

This car attracts so much attention, all good. I have done 2 Proms with her, I was asked to do a wedding but I bottled it haha
People even video her when passing on motorways  Shocked

Open to realistic offers, we all know what these cars are worth when completed to a high standard
Please feel free to ask any questions

Here is a walkaround video taken a couple of hours ago
