I couldn't make up my mind whether I needed one or not, so I ordered it anyway  ;D

......where it will remain unopened to be used by somebody after you die. :)


 It's stemo's coffin, he's planning ahead  :)

Ah....I see. So it will be needed in a few months at the most. :)

....
mk 3/4/5 Cortina:
Open the bonnet
Undo 3 self tapping screws that secure the heater box cover
Undo both jubilee clips, and pull off the hoses.
Swap the heater matrix.
Reverse the above list, top up the coolant and call it done.


Granadas are very simi!ar.


So is a Mk1 Cavalier  :y :y

Sadly the modern ones are huge, gone are the days of  few cables, heater matrix, couple of flaps and some tubing.

Its now, heater matrix (or two), multiple flaps for each side plus also potentially the rear, evaporator, servo motors, electric heater etc etc, fricking huge and all eating up real estate I would rather like to get my hands on for my own kit.

My better half is away this weekend (visiting her family in Wales .. I can't remember which weekend this actually was - before Christmas, anyway!) so I thought I'd spend lots of time in the garage - work (the kind they pay me to do) had better ideas though, so I split my time between my desk and the garage in the end.

Still, I did make some progress - after dropping the dash in yesterday I spent some time with the knock-on adapters and a rear wheel, trying to get it to clear the rear brakes. The only other person I know who has been there & done that with a DeDion had to machine a little off the caliper, but I think a 3mm spacer will probably move the wheel out enough that the wheel clears the caliper and the tyre still stays inside the arch - time will tell, as I have to wait for them to turn up. So the steel build wheel went back on for now (as I think I mentioned earlier - I have 3x 16" alloys and 1x 15" steelie on the car - the 15" steelie clears the caliper because it doesn't have the 'lump' inside that the alloys do).

I turned my attention to the in-fill panels needed to finish off the footwells prior to carpet today, and set to with a little Cardboard Aided Design:


The mock up cleared the hinges and clipped to the scuttle hoop with terry clips, and then I used that as a template to cut out a sheet of ali using an air nibbler and manual tin snips:


I think with a little more trimming (just a hair) it will fit pretty well, and once covered in carpet you'll never see the amateurville metalwork! I don't have a sheet bender, so the bends were all formed with blocks of wood and clamps, and my hands, so they're not precisely regular along their length.. but they'll do!

Need to order some more ali now so I can do the drivers side as well.. and then try and figure out how all the carpet is going to fit on top of all this!

As a kid of the sixties I was dragged from one funeral to another as a succession of elderly relatives curled up their toes and dropped off the perch.

They were sombre depressing events and the only colour in sight was black. :-\

Things have improved though, and as I get older I find I'm attending more funerals again. The last two have been great fun (literally) with lots of laughter, giving an irreverent a two-fingered f*uck you salute to the dreary funerals of old.

One was a biker funeral with lots of heavy metal music. The other had Mr Blue Sky from ELO as it's introduction and exit music.

The whole church was rocking and vibrating. :y :y :y

Much easier to demonstrate the problem in a picture .. but I don't have one; it's all because the floorpan isn't flat and the seats don't go very far forward because of the incredibly narrow footwells :)

I popped the current (possibly temporary) dash back in again; I'm sure it will need re-working, possibly for radius requirements and probably because there will inevitably be electrical gremlins.. I'm still not sure how the radiator fan is supposed to be switched in the wiring loom I have (which came with very, very basic instructions from S-V-C), for example, so that will be interesting. Still, the immobiliser still works, and I've properly fitted the little red LED now so the IVA man can see it go blinky blinky.



Does look a lot more like a car with some floor carpets, seats and dash in. Just still missing the bit that makes all the noise..
