Thanks Chris for that comparison pic. Got any stashed away that you might be willing to sell? I have mine that I can trade.

What I would do..... if I was going to keep the euro bumper.... put the IC in front of the rad. Seen it done on a few 450+ bhp cars in the UK. Just get a cheap ebay IC and run a slightly longer pipework tract.

I’d like to retain AC, but have seen some people run ICs above the cross member and behind the grill.

Found some time today to work on the floor pans. POR15 is on. 3 coats on the driver side, 2 on the passenger side. Next up, decide what sound and heat material to use.

Did you keep the previous sound deadening in? Or scrape it out?

I removed it with a heat gun and scraper, followed up with some mineral spirits to remove the sticky residue.

How was applying the Por15? I’m about to do the same, I lifted the insulation of my coupes floor and also found some surface rust, so I need to go and remove all the old sound deadening and spray.

Not bad. The time consuming parts are in the prep (i.e. clearing the surface, degrease, metal prep, and letting it dry out completely). I applied 3 coats to the driver side and 2 coats to the passenger side. Make sure your area is well ventilated and use a respirator.

Made some progress on the suspension and brakes today. Rears are pretty much done.

Work has been keeping busy and out of town a lot lately, but I managed to spend the afternoon cleaning and organizing the garage and cleaning the CQ’s carpet. It’s not perfect, but much better than before. Rust stains are tough to get out.

It feels like I went 10 rounds with it, but the 7A harness has been removed. Could have used a couple more hands.

I see a lot of people have routed their 3B harness through the hole for the AC lines due to how the 3B harness is built. I intend to keep AC and am considering cutting a new hole in the firewall somewhere on the passenger side (with a firewall grommet). I'd rather do this then have a bunch of wires that are either too long or too short. Plus, the driver's side area under the dash doesn't need any more wiring than it already has. Any thoughts on that?

This is what I'm doing but with an AAN harness. I cut a hole to the left of the A/C hole, I'll shoot you a pic on IG, it seems like it'll work out pretty nicely.

I think I’m mostly done with stripping down the 7A harness.

Image

I do have a question about this T7 connector. I think it’s for the coolant thermoswitch. I did not remove it yet. Am I supposed to keep it?

That's for the 7A sub harness, MFTS coolant temp sensor and oil pressure switches.
