    I hate upside down soldering. Vividly remember the sizzle noise and temporary blindness when the big gob of molten lead dropped onto my eyeball a few years back.

    Is it running yet? I saw one of these on the road the other day for the first time in a long time and it gave me wood..

    They did pretty well with the whole "make it look like a 90's supercar" thing.. Doesn't even look that outdated these days, still pretty curved and things around most of it which is the current style.

    Success. Needs a good run as another lifter sounds a bit ticky and having some oddness preventing it from revving properly but massive massive jump forward.

    The end is in sight.

    I genuinely hope this isn't something serious and it all works for you.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Thanks to Qlds current wet weather was able to spend a fair chunk of the weekend throwing the last few bits together on this. Still some finessing of odds and ends, but 95% done.



    Made some new intercooler brackets because the ones that were holding it on were a joke, nice and strong now. I'll get some more mounts welded on the bottom shortly to make a supporting bracket and give me somewhere to mount airflow direction plates.



    Speaking of airflow, the cooler is bigger than I expected and hangs down a solid 50mm or so from the middle of the bar. Not sure what I'll do there, might make up a splitter or crank the cooler over a bit more but that means redoing all the pipework.



    Also got all the interior back together after making new speaker mounts only to find the front channels dont seem to work, so I'll have to figure that out shortly.



    Plan now is to get a roady and rego as soon as the weather clears up and start driving it to sort any niggles that may have been overlooked

    Thanks mate, I feel the same. I never had much love for these things previously but the car has really grown on me. I'm still going to be nervous about every little clunk or noise for the next 6 months thinking about what I could have missed.

    Given we've had it for three years now and the guy we bought it off had it in his yard with a seized engine for over 5 I'd say comfortably 8 years or so. It's like a modern barn find!

    I'm looking forward to a tunnel lap or two, it's only got one muffler each side at the back and obviously pretty loud even at idle. The exhaust doesn't have a H pipe or a crossover like most of the other Z32 systems so it may mang a little under the pump. I was really hoping to take it out for a quick lap of my local private test track but the rain all weekend doused that idea.

    Went to take this out for a lap in preparation for rwc and rego last night and the car wouldnt rev at all, which happened last time around. Idles fine but plant it and it won't go above around 1800rpm. Jase and discovered this the other night, swapped the AFM and pulled some of the pipework apart thinking there might have been a boost rag, didn't find anything and then the problem went away.

    I knew all the pipes were fine so I dropped the cooler off, hit the key and away it went, ran pig rich but revved well up to 3500-4000.

    Had a look inside the cooler and everything seemed Ok, but I do remember when we first got the car it was full of oil from the previous engine seizing. I'd cleaned it previously with degreaser and a hose but it must need a more serious going over.

    While I get the cooler sorted the car still needs to be driven so I knocked up some Sketchytech light weight composite race connection tubes (patent pending), hit the key and got six feet out of the garage before the fucking thing died and refused to start again. Battery sounded a bit crook and dropped to 5v when cranking so wopped in the deep cycle from the camper, cranked like a champ but No start.



    Had a squizz on the ConZult readout and it showed Error 21 Primary Ignition Fault. Awesome, the PTU ignitor must have died. No stress, got a spare in the shed so chucked that in, hit the key, cranked it over and.......


    Nothing. Fucks sake.

    At this point it started pissing down rain again and it was getting late so rolled it back in the shed.

    Hopefully I'll get a chance to get stuck in again tonight testing the PTU and tracing the ignition circuit to hopefully find a loose wire or connection and actually drive this thing.
