    As the garage has air con I spent a few hours in there today!!

    Got the Vbox installed for Mallory



    Ran the antenna up through an existing hole.



    Also added this BFO red light in the car as a low oil pressure light, might seem a bit extreme but in certain light it's hard to see the Dash2 warnings and I wanted something that would alert me and say




    "stop, bad things, worse than clutch paddles falling off, be happening"

    The light is run off the ECU, set to be on when oil pressure is anywhere between -3psi and 30psi and off if above 31psi.

    The idea being, if the red light comes on and I dip the clutch the ECU will turn off the engine as it's set to do so via the low oil pressure kill function.

    Hopefully, I'll never have to practice this.

    Default House's ITB XE build and re-build

    Last few items sorted.






    Temp cover made as I've heard that it affects gearbox temps, see how it gets on. If box temps rise then I'll look at some sort of meshing instead that will allow air to flow.



    Bit of project Binky inspired bracketry, Ben didn't like how the bleed nipple was just flapping about in the wind so he commissioned me to create a solution. It's neat enough. Will powder coat it along with the other bits once I know the brake cooling and gearbox cover plates work.
