Havent updated for a while so.....

Made up some brackets to hold the sunroof panel in place until we weld it properly.

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-02-05162825

Robbed a scrap Corrado of its Dash heater, cleaned it all out, fitted new Matrix and bolted it up

Also got hold of a Mk4 Golf V6 4 motion throttle pedal (flyby), made up a bracket and modified the Corrado pedal box to allow fitting of the mk4 pedal

Made up a custom subframe for the seats to bolt to.

Only problem with this is the seats wont go back any further due to the seat (ears) hitting cage, and the seat wont go any lower. The position of the seat is perfect for my driving position, but its a bloody mission getting in and out of the seat due to steering wheel and side impact bars being in the way. Im actually worried it could be an MOT failure if the tester cant get in the car. Rolling Eyes

Oh and also got the Electric spoiler working manually. Cool

An update WITH PICS Very Happy

Cage is fully finished, and managed to get it in primer today. What a pig of a job that was. Not looking foward to putting topcoat on Mad

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-21180703
My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-21180732
My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-21180759

And i made up some brackets so that i can re-fit the original dashboard (needed cutting about) but will fit around cage

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-21181150

Made up some subframes for the seats, but they just sat too high and was a nightmare trying to get in / out of the car. So had a rethink and made these. I have checked my little blue MSA reg book and it seems legal as ive used correct thickness steel. So hopefully should be ok.
Seats now sit perfectly, are plenty low enough and sit further back for my long legs. (still need to drill holes in pic)

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-21180813

Modified the exhaust tunnel so i can use the Mk4 Golf cable shifter unit, but mount it inside the car ontop the tunnel, this allows selecting gear much easier when sat in the bucket seats as the shifter is so much higher.

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-21181255

And finally fitted the sunroof panel. Did this by making up some temp brackets to hold the steel panel in place, and get the gaps perfect. Then cut some solid bar to fit underneath. The bar is slightly bigger than the gaps. Then welded either side of the bar to prevent the roof warping.
So the roof is solid, but to fill the gap ontop we used seamsealer to fill the bulk of the gap, then when that dries will rub it down and put another thin layer ontop. Then once its all dry, sand it down and paint. I dont know how it will look, and i may end up changing my mind afterwards but will have to wait and see how it turns out.

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-21181006

More progress tommorow hopefully. Very Happy

Cracking build. Cool

Just wish I had the time to do a build like this.

Got the offer of a part finished kit car but know that I cant commit enough time to the build. Sad

Keep up the good work. sunny

Cheers.
to be honest i havent got the spare time either, i always have to sacrifice something else to go and work on the car, and i wont lie when i say it causes a fair few rows with the wife. Hopefully she will see the effort was worth it when i let her take it round the track a few times.

Fitted the seats and loosely fitted the harnesses

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-04-21135854

Modified the Mk4 Golf Shifter, made some straps to mount it (still yet to bolt it in) and re-routed the cables through the bulkhead to the gearbox

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-03-28155753

Hacked apart a Corrado Centre console.......

My 'bit on the side' - Page 3 2012-04-28103822

Bought myself a new Camera, (even though i havent got a clue how to use half the settings yet) i thought i'd take some snaps of the Corrado.
Havent done anymore to this car, although i have just bought an Engineless Corrado for spares for a good price.

Bought an Engine/running gear-less 'spare' Corrado last weekend for basically beer tokens.

It has got all the small parts im missing from the Silver car, i.e. mirrors, door handles, door seals, clips, etc.
Shame to break it really as it is so tidy and its a non sunroof shell Crying or Very sad
