Jealous?

Wasn't any effort to do; the car is possessed.

Just for you, Trev, I shall aim for occasional hyperbole.  Do pop round for a Watford Exotics cuppa; I suspect I shall be in the company of Christine for some time...

Even on depress, this bloody thing was giving grief.

But that was soon sorted.  Another one binned, huzzah!IMAG0617-20180603-210220260.jpg

The SE High Wing is a different proposition for Delco-Moraine deletion.  The recess in the boot is full of engine management, and the car has a mechanical, belt-driven vacuum pump.  First thing I did was check what the pump is delivering:

Outstanding!  I expected less.  On the High Wing this pump is only supplying engine management and heater.  It'll be a simple job to branch off and supply a servo, so I'm going to see if that works out.

Also, the High Wing has its own rear brake limiting valve.  It's questionable whether the Wilwood is necessary but I think I'll fit one to give additional latitude for adjustment.  Perhaps even delete the limiter?  Not sure yet.

The relay/fuse tree is arranged differently, so will require slightly different treatment to that on the S4.  There's also some highly questionable cabling snaking around.

I previously mentioned that this car had suffered a frontal.  I'm seeing more evidence of that now the DM system is out of the way.  Lots of filler, and the pedal box studs aren't quite parallel.  The old DM mounting brackets are quite badly bent too.  Hoping the new brackets won't be too much hassle!

Seems there are many GRP repairs to the front underside too, so the radiator job could be interesting...

Yes, strange.  I'll have a good look underneath soon.
