Again, very highly unlikely as you won't have driveshaft shattering power in this car and you can hear the u-joint and bearing going bad long before they'll explode but it did cross my mind when I looked at those pictures.

Looks good though, nice fitment
To be honest, the thought crossed my mind too. However, in vintage racing, the rules specify all cars must have driveshaft loops. Its pretty much just a U bracket(or circle) that is bolted to the tunnel (can have more than one) to prevent the driveshaft from flying away in the case something were to happen. I'll be forced to put at least one in soon!

Not much to update since I was at Mosport all weekend. After some discussion, it was decided that the kill switch will be mounted somewhere inside the car, and a T handle will be the solution to access it outside the car. The T handle will reside in the gutter near the passenger wiper. A cutout in the hood will need to be made, but that isn't a big deal right now.



Found an old heater box block off plate that must have been for some other car in its previous life. I trimmed the sides, drilled new holes, and installed for a test fit. I will glue it in so it is sealed after the engine bay is painted.



Took the pedal box apart today. Luckily the bushings and stuff are in decent shape, so a slosh of paint, new hardware, and it will be reinstalled.



The car is soooo motivating now that it is in one colour! Not eager to start wetsanding though...

Trust me, you'll be one happy camper when you take her for a spin for the first time.
I wish you were closer because I'd love to come and help you.

Commmaaannnn its not that far


Built up my pedal box this afternoon. Regreased all the bushings, found some nice plated hardware to use, just have to put some grip tape on the surface of the pedals and I will be set!

Managed to install it, along with the brake system mechanism. The new clutch master came in the mail as well by coincidence today, and with a new shorter mount on the end installed just perfectly.



No more for now, as I'll be at Mosport again tomorrow! (shouldn't I be saying ????!)

Remember these? The E21 halfshafts that were donated to this project back on page 4 lol



Anyways, now I know why I put the halfshafts off for so long... what a messy and time-consuming job! Maybe I should have just opted for the regular 2002 shafts + spacer solution lol.

This is only half of the messy warzone:



After a few hours of cleaning and a bit of painting, this is what I got:



I only put half of the shaft together before calling it quits for the evening.

What a mess

Good job on the finished product. Did you remember to put it back together with the shafts in the same orientation as they came out?

You saw the finished product before I did? Man, you are good! lol. What a bitch to get the 2002 CV side back on. In short, I had to mix and match some parts, but it should be okay. As far as orientation goes, no they weren't marked when I got them, so I'll just put them in and hope for the best. But if anything in the rear end twists off first, my money is on the outer flange in the trailing arm...

A somewhat blurry pic that uploaded, now obvious once on the computer.

Small stuff done lately including some rust repair for the inner left front fender area. Also got cracking on finishing the front of the fuel lines that run into the engine bay. Got some clips and stuff happening there to keep it tidy. Also installed the new grommets into the brake master so I could run the lines into there from the original reservoir. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough of the newer fancy blue soft line, so I will have to scavenge some from somebody's parts car soon enough! Also made a clutch line to connect the reservoir to the master down on the pedal box... yay stainless E36 fuel lines! Recycling FTW! LOL
