    Roll bar and screen wanted

    Roll bar wanted, ideally the ‘jap’ type that’s 2” tube with the sloping corners and no diagonals. Any condition considered. Screen wanted, ideally heated and in decent condition. If you have the wiper/motors as well, bonus. Let me know what you have.

    S2000 donor car.

    I used the KA one but swapped the outer for a posh Ford one and it looked fine in my opinion but I know a few on here that used the Honda one. I believe the only issue is the cable connection but its not difficult. Keep the Honda one and decide closer to the time.

    All straight forward enough then.

    Ahhh, excessive use of the grinder. You cant beat it. It’s the difference between building a car and just assembling one.

    Is your engine an AP1? Throttle cable type or an AP2 fly by wire?

    Handbrake isn’t needed as the chassis uses a KA one but it can be made to fit. The wiring loom isn’t nessesary if you are using the Omex set up. A few years ago you needed to supply WF with the engine loom as they needed a couple of plugs that they couldn’t source from anywhere but I believe they can now. Keep the engine loom anyway, you may need it. Keep the engine mounts. Dont worry about the prop shaft as it’s huge and has the wrong diff end anyway. Keep any clips and pipes off the engine as they do come in handy on the odd occasion.

    A bit of work on the gearbox today. Besides cleaning out the bell housing which was boring and not worth taking pictures of i needed to fix the split inner gator. The rubber bit has to fit over the gear lever and by It's tight. Also while the box is out a new output shaft seal. There's always something nice about genuine parts. Out with the old. In with the new. Easiest oil seal that I have ever done as it has a metal ring on the outside. Onto the engine at last. Now that's a bit different.

    Driveshaft Assembly Instructions

    Are the big nuts on the end of the stubs both right handed? If they are left and right handed then the right handed thread goes on the right so you tighten them towards the front of the car. You may have already done this and if so ignore me.

    The Schroth harnesses have an extra small tab tat you pull to slacken them of but they are also easy to tighten in the normal way. They 'appear' smoother to operate than other harnesses and do come in a left and right. Inertia will always be the hassle free seatbelt but i like the more race car feel to a four point harness and the Schroth seams to be the better option but you do pay a premium though.

    There will always be a bit of faff when someone new gets in the car but other than that the Schroths do it for me every time, Not the cheapest though but I like them.

    I noticed this in the build manual. I've always had harnesses and as much as inertia's are more practical I think I'll stick another set of Schroths in.
