I got wind that CarbonMods were stopping production of wet lay carbon products, of which the dash was one. I searched the internet for alternatives but I didn’t like any as much as the CarbonMods one, so I snapped one up! Ok it’s a bit early, but I just couldn’t do without. I hope I don’t mess it up when it comes to cutting it.
Back to the build and the drivers side footwell panel still hadn’t arrived (it’s the 18th September at this point). I therefore grabbed a mate, we flipped the chassis and started on the floorpans. The chassis has the lowered floor so less bits to do there, just the front ones.
Firstly, I mounted the brake pressure switch. This is done with an M6 bolt which was, surprisingly, missing. I therefore used a longer one with an M10 nut as a spacer. Hopefully I remember I’ve done that!
After fitting the front and rear 3-way connectors and flexi pipes, the first pipe to make was the master cylinder -> front pipe. This was fairly easy, then it was the pipes going from the 3-way connector to the flexi pipes.
Cunningly, I’d left the clutch master cylinder off to give me more space. Stupidly, I didn’t take that into account and so managed to block the gap with the brake pipe. I rebent it, it all fitted but it was a bit ugly. I vowed to get some more pipe, invest in a flaring tool and redo it.
