On Monday, I downloaded the SVA form, and today I sent it off. I've asked for 30th March as a date for the SVA test - if I get it on that date, it means I now have just 6 weeks to finish the car off. Better get moving!
I ordered a Suede Sparco steering wheel and boss, and some rubber extrusions, and 3 Intatrim Ranger seats (in black). They're about the largest seats that will fit - I'd like to use the ones that Aeon are making, but I feel that they may be more race orientated.
They were a bit surprised I wanted 3 seats!
I'll be ordering the silicon hoses tomorrow, so I took a look at all the pipes that need connecting.
This is completely 32mm - I've already got the aluminium pipe; just need to get the silicon hoses, which means 4x90°, 2x135° and 2x1m flexible hose (although I'll order an extra one to be safe).
Since the heater has 16mm copper pipe, I'll try some 15mm copper pipe to see how good a seal it is - if it's too large, I'll get something else. I'll also convert the pipes to 16mm as soon as possible after the engine pipes. This means I need 1x22-16mm reducing straight, 1x19-16mm reducing straight, 1x90° 19mm, 4x90° 16mm, 1x19mm hose joints, 2x1mx16mm flexible hose
This is quite complicated - it needs to go from 70mm to 57mm, and then back to 70mm again (after going into the turbo). I'll need 2x70-60mm reducers (57mm don't seem to be available), 2x1mx57mm straights, 6x57mm connectors, 2x70mm connectors, 1x135°x57mm bend, 1x45°x57mm bend and 3x90°x57mm bends. I may change all the 57mm diameters to 60mm - the intercooler does have a large bump on it.
