Thanks for the fusebox info , looks like a real nice part! Will make contact with them soon.

That 68 Trophy , Sorry , i know i'm drifting off topic , but it's an odd treat to see one! :D

Is it the one with the dry sump carried in the frame , oil filler cap by your nuts under the front of the seat?

The only part i still have for posterity , is one of those sexy big exhaust flanges they came with , i remember loosing an exhaust at about 2 am one morning , thrashing a fellow in an 'E type" Jaguar! or was it the Chinese fellow in the Mustang Mach3 , anyway ,thrashed em both though , but the memory is a little hazy ! Wild days! :evil:

I removed the remaining good one flange and have carried it with me since 1972. Was going to cast some more of them for resale to the Cafe Builder crowd ! :)
I'll shut up now !! :lol:
Hamish.

I got my delivery of oil. I'm going with redline only because they recommend it for the gearbox.
I also wanted to get the run in additive. That just helps the parts bed in properly.

I made a clutch slave cylinder for aluminium and its almost done. Just needs to remove a few scratch marks.
Lastly a shot of the dash being programmed.
After a huge struggle to get the laptop to talk to the ecu its finally programmed.
I had to try a few different usd to db9 cables to find one that works with windows 10 and the wintec 4 software of the ecu.

Here is a link to the first ride out of the garage. I started 30 November 2015 and I almost done. Had to get some data mapped
for the engine computer. I just need to see where the tpd/map blend is as well as the afr.

To do is finish the bonnet. I'm busy making the mould. Yes the third one. I think I like the look but you have to wait for that.
Then the mudguards front and back and lastly get the electromotive TECS engine computer to talk to the Race technology
Dash2 Pro to talk to each other via canbus. This might require a few coffees.
