Body work looks about right there is a gap between the side panels and the bonnet on the cat my nose and bonnet meet just above the cam cover. I have a mondeo master cylinder fitted this is shorter so as not to hit the filter back plate and I have blocked off the fourth outlet with a bleed nipple

On another note I know they aren't fixed yet but the cycle wings look like the need to go forward a bit for iva

Thanks for that, I have sourced a non abs mondeo master cylinder, do you have to modify the push rod?
Ah that's interesting about the cycle wings I had them mocked up further forward as that's where they seemed to want to sit, but didn't want to fix them in place till I had researched the angles /measurements

I've only ever had the mondeo one fitted so just cut the pushrod to suit it in the first place

OK time for an update.....
Our newborn has been taking up a lot of my spare time aswell as starting to Kart in RAFMSA endurance series

But I have solved the brake cylinder problem, I have now fitted the master cylinder from a fiat punto, so I have no longer got any clearance issues,

I have fitte dthe malpassi filter king and reg, in the newly created space next to the carbs,

The front bodywork now fits pretty ell, and It now holds water 9 I had an issue with the original radiator leaking, and the pipe work i had to start with being for a pinbto, and needing modded to fit a zetec, but after a lot of chasing thats all done now.

The wiring is done and the dash panel is in, with a detachable facisa which will be trimmed in pleather before test. the rear GRP is in and the fuel cap/ filler is in place

the brakes are bled... had a bit of a fight with several connections but all seams well at the moment

next on the list is to sort the front geometry out and go front to back ensuring everything is tight and in safety

I have aquired a set of stamps, where is it I am ment to stamp the chassis with the same number as the plate?

Hopefully i will get to run it up to temp this weekend and set the TPS properly, then its a fight to get the windscreen lined up and tidy up the cable loom under the dash scuttle

I will then do some aluminum fabrication to make a pedal box cover, rear luggage shelf, and a tunnel cover, the light at the end of the tunnel is there... its dim but there!!

I will try and post some pictures up as asnd when I get them uploaded to my pc at home, I would do it from my phone but this site is a nightmare on IOS

I'm taking good mine in with just the scuttle I would remove the wiper mechanism all together otherwise the screen could be defined as missing glass

You dont need to have a aero screen or windscreen fitted for the IVA....

If its not there they dont need to test it or check for radius of the parts which is why its good to also remove the wiper posts for the test.

You can also do away with a heater / demister for the windscreen if its not there both for the IVA and MOT.

There is a lot to be said for using a aero screen on your car as you wont get the wind buffet coming around the corners of the screen and better vision.

Lastly just double check on the height requirements for the headlamps as they might have changed / been amended recently before turning up for the IVA Test.

Just read through this topic and obviously nothing has been posted for a while and I'm eager to know if you managed to get through the IVA yet?

Wellllife has kinda taken over this year with a newborn and I have moved sqn, but she is nearly there.
Over the xmas break I have cracked on, I have a few little jobs left, no doubt some rework. On xmas eve I dropped her on to her wheels for the first time, and need to wait till after the holidays to get some help doing the geaometry and bleeding the brakes. I also have to mount the fog light but need it on the ground to set the height. The bonnet still isn't fitted just waiting for the foam filter to arrive to save me having to cut the bonnet prior to the test.
2 questions.... is there a set amount of padding the dash has to have? I.e. what thickness foam do I have to lay on it before the vinyl covering ?

And the repeaters for the indicators where do they mount? Side of the dash pod or on the edge of the cycle wings?

Will post some photos later

My father in law would like it going over by a specialist and put through it's IVA does anyone know of a company I. The south that would do this?

After building this one I think I would like to build my own for the track, there would be some things I would do different ( floor mounted pedals for instance) will have to see what's about! 750mc is supported by the RAFMSA so I can get time off to do that

Well a lot has happened, Easter Monday last year my father in law passed away, so the car has sat in my garage awaiting completion, as the ownership of it was in some doubt we had to wait till everything was sorted. As I don’t fit in it, my wife has made the decision to sell it as a nearly finished project, cause we don’t have the funds to put it through an Iva and get it finish d when as completed it’s not going to return the extra . It’s a shame really but that’s the way it goes sometimes.
