Gear shift mechanism lowered II E-mail

Tuesday  March 27, 2007

Welded the new lowered support brackets for the gearshifter in place and also lowered the gearshift cable brackets.

 

Coated all that in a layer of zync and it will be spray painted with glossy black later this week. After that a sound dose of  transparent Tectyl will be used to make absolutely sure that rust won't stand a change. We are building the car with as much rust protection as possible. Seen to many rusty Countach chassis in the past.

The shift mechanism on the rear has been finalised as well.

This blog entry will be updated with more pics as soon as I have them (someone else took the photo's yesterday)

Gear shift mechanism lowered E-mail

Work on lowering the gearshifter has started. Gear shift mechanism on the back has been finished as well as the brakelines on the rear of the car.

Couldn't take more pics as my batteries went flat. More pics next update.

Back to the drawing board E-mail

A little bit of a setback, when we stripped the car, we thought that the gearshifter (Ford Scorpio part) was fitted correctly. But while doing the gear setup, we found that the gear shifter is actually mounted way to high and is too short to allow for a gate gear shifter.

 

The whole shifter assembly needs to be brought down quite a bit to allow enough movement to apply the gate gear shifter. So we have to put the grinder into the freshly powdercoated chassis.  Bugger! The cable mounts  also need to be lowered to allow for this to work.

Gear shift mechanism on the back wasn't made perfect (our miss) and we worked on adjusting / changing that. It all works now and next week we will make it look right again.

 

Also worked on fixating the breaklines on the right rear of the car.

More next week!
