    Sierra handbrake switch

    I had a text with Thrusty... S2000 handbrake is on the way!

    Sierra handbrake switch

    Even on an old chassis which currently has a seirra handbrake (1996 wide indipendant with MT75 tunnel)?

    I left the cycle wings for today and took a look at trying to fit my old boot pannel with my new rollbar. The rear stays are in a different place and welded in so to start with I've cut out the rear corners and cut away so the main part of the pannel fits. I'm undecided what to do with the gap for now. Either backfill or use an offcut and join it to the corner cut out.

    Sierra handbrake switch

    Tempting but I've already got a huge list of "just need to tweak..." If I was only doing an engine and gearbox change I'd be nearly finished.

    Sierra handbrake switch

    Does anyone know where I can buy a new Sierra handbrake switch? Preferably online. eBay searching and usual kit car places is drawing blanks for me. I've found them in Germany but don't want to pay more for postage than the part... https://www.motomobil.com/switch-hand-brake-warning-lamp,8063,15095750-3.html I've found one that looks similar from a Landrover defender.

    To support the cooling pipes and to make sure they don't rub I've attached a couple of clamps. For one I needed a bracket so a couple of bits of carbon fibre offcuts did the job. I've also been adjusting the cycling wing brackets. I changed the wheels from 15" to 13" a while ago and the cycle wings needed lowering. I've waited until now as I'm also fitting new ones with big heads. The brackets were 50mm above the tyres so I've adjusted them to be 25mm. I might need to shorten the big head threads but not sure as I will have to allow a tolerance for the carbon fibre used to mount them.

    Replacement rear lights

    I see... I think some people have cut round holes in the tub for the light fittings to sit into. It depends on the light fittings you are using. Mine are shallow so I cut the back of the housing out.

    Replacement rear lights

    These are standard width detachable arches so should be possible to fit to your fixed arch tub with some trimming.

    Replacement rear lights

    Mine is the "kit" bodywork from 1996 but yes I have also got the extra wide arches. The difference with yours is it looks like you don't have detachable arches. Anyway the solution is to trim the light housings not the tub. I had to trim the light housings and used a profiler to get the contour of the tub but you could use cardboard.

    I've got the horn... The old old was broken and fitted where the battery now is so I've followed the advice of others on here and got this loud but compact horn.

    The ECU tray will have to wait because I've got some new bits from Gemzoe Motorsport. A compact air temp sensor mounted in a tube for the post intercooler pipework and a machined straight intake to replace the 90degree ford one.
