Are the headlamp brackets fitted on the wrong sides? 

Yes they are mark. It helps with the angles for Iva when using the caterham style indicator pods.

Just Halfords satin black. Has always held up to the heat on previous projects.

Good to know, I use that myself.

So 1 step fwd 3 back. 

Having weighed up the wiring loom I'd noticed a few things. There was a distinct lack of relays, no main fuse and some of the cable runs needed rerouting. That coupled with adding in a freewheel. An Aim dash and the emerald it was going to end up a right bodge job. So decided to start from scratch, well nearly.

Started out identifying all the plugs on the dash loom

Stripped out the excess

Simplified front section of the loom.

Left the rear alone bar removing speed sensor wires, swapping In a higher gauge fuel pump feed and stripping out all the earths as I'll have a local earth at the back. 

Lots of wiring fun to come........

Yep I remember stripping out a carrier bag full of wire after fitting the aim dash. Would have liked to do what you’ve done but as car was already built it was not a viable option!

Probably too late now but you might have been better selling that loom and using a module kit from Car Builder Solutions. They have one which has relays and fuses that are dead easy to plan circuits from and when going off standard is good value

Cheers Jeff. To be honest it did cross my mind however there was a few damaged bits that I wouldn't have been happy selling on plus I've been able to reuse the front and back sections and just remove the guff from in the middle. I've gone for something similar but a bit more oem looking in one of these.

More wiring fun in progress (Ecu this time)

Also as a side project, like I need one :rolleyes:, I'd bought a set of wheels. I was going to get them powder coated but was a bit nervous of them being in an oven as they are such a skinny light wheel. So decided to go for it myself.

Luckily managed to do all the sanding during quiet spells at work as it was about an hour and a half per wheel.

Then top coated.
