The Gathering P3

Hi everyone, I've been a busy boy down at the scrap yard today - got ALL these parts for just £40!!! :Q :oooh:

G & L Autospares Colchester are by far the most reasonable and friendly scrappy I've ever been to.

Mondeo MK3 2.0 Duratec MTX 75 Gearlever Mech & Gear shift/selector cables:

Fiesta MK4/5 Pedal Box with Hydraulic Clutch Master Cylinder and all pipework:

Fiesta MK4/5 Brake M/cylinder & reservoir (has outlet for hydraulic clutch)

Fiesta MK4/5 Brake cross-linkage (Mk4 Pedal has different attachment for brake linkage than earlier MK3):

That was all I could muster in the couple of hours that Mrs Esh let me spend in there today but I have seen some more useful bits for future visits 🙂

As it was pissing down today, I thought it was an ideal time to sit indoors and fit some piston rings 🙂 I also figured out the wiring for the Focus RS instrument cluster to allow it to work in the humble MK3 Fez (still got to get hold of a signal generator from work to test the speedo yet though... :oooh: )

Off to the scrap yard again tomorrow for more "skinned-knucke" action 😀

Here's a quick pic of the RS Clocks illuminated, how things'll look at night 🙂

Look at that mess! :aaah: Good job I know what's going on then (?!) 😳

A few bulbs removed for features that my old nail doesn't have (such as ABS, Airbags, Traction Control, Seatbelt warning lamps.... etc).
