So how do you revitalize an old switch panel like this with some new switches ...


First of all, you need to cut those useless coin holders out and put something more functional in them ...



Then a little bit of work with a stanley knife and a drill and voila ...








what are they for?

Harry, I think that we only need an Intermediate shaft and some gears. I have to call him again today and get Paul's stuff on the way.

Harry,
I think Al meant 'pick up as in the phone. I think this is a busy time for Jon and he's busy working on transmissions hopefully one of which is mine.

Al,
What did Jon say about switching to standard ratios with the GGSX final?

Paul.

Harry,

Well if you can get hold of Jon, the 'problem' if you can call it that is that the RS gears Teet provided me with are giving some problems with the fitment of the intermediate shaft and 1st and 2nd aren't quite as strong which is giving us worries over launching the car and busting 1st.

I've looked back at the gear ratios thread we had a good discussion on earlier and using Paul's excel program I ran the ratios for a set of standard US spec gears with the GGSX final. The ratios aren't dramatically different in terms of speed in each gear with the exception of first which will now only run to 44 at 7500 rpms. Other than that speeds are reasonably comparable up to 4th gear.

So basically as long as the ratios are correct and I haven't messed up the calculations, I want to ask Jon if we can go with US spec gears which are stonger, use the RS shift forks and rails, use the taller 5th gear ratio I sent him for highway use and mate the GGSX final drive. I also want to know if double synchros on 3rd and 4th will improve durability and if so add those.

He spoke to AL about exchanging RS gears for standard ratios or billing me for new gears and sending the RS gears back for re-use. I can accomodate either solution.

I also need the bill so I can arrange transfer of funds as he won't accept paypal from me overseas. That's about it ... oh and remind him I want an EGT probe and magnetic engine drain plug.

Al's going spare so if anyone can get anyone at TRE help us out. Cheers.

Jas I'll PM you tonight, we need to get some stuff to Alex for the 4 bolt fitment and I need to discuss shipping methods.

I appreciate this guys ... you are all THE BEST !!!

This little Dude ...



had nothing to do this afternoon so he came up here ...



... and this was the result.





I'm not sure that the photos really do it justice but to try and show the difference, here is a before and after pic

Before


After


It might be overstating it a bit to say it all looks new, because the trim is still 12 years old and has it's fair share of scrapes and scratches, but the difference is night and day all the same. Some of the B-pillar pieces were so faded they were almost white !!!

I'll post some pictures of the door trims and dashboard when I've done those. I think if the fabric dye works on the grey seats and headliner as well as this plastic dye did on the trim, the inside of the car will look pretty clean ... stock but clean.

Paul.

Paul, I'm going to MA with the wife and friends. We'll drop by Al's shop this Saturday to drop off the small items and the exhaust I'll send him when he's ready to ship everything out.

Paul.

John,
I'll do my best. We are getting there. Iceman did me a huge favour and got in touch with Jon at TRE. So he has spoken with Al a few times since then and the Trans is pretty much on it's way. I'm waiting on some CF parts and an Intercooler setup and Al has to do tidy up the 4 bolt and fit the rear diff with the GGSX rear ring and pinion gear and we are about good to go.

If we are lucky, it might be done by December.

Paul.
