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
