Honda Engine Elise Build
Posted 06 January 2013 - 05:40 PM
I therefore decided that the best course of action was to remove the entire rear end fully built up.
From there it was a pretty easy process of disconnecting everything and draining the water.
Before dropping the engine out on another little trolley i'd made, I'm getting carried away with castors I think, I should stop before I fit two to the rear of the elise when its finished
Thats it for today, tucked up for the night again...

Then it was out with the old radiator and give the front end a little clean up just to get the dirt and grime shifted.
Then back to the rear of the car and its off with the heat shielding / sound deadening from the bulkhead. Who needs sound deadening, if you want quiet buy a Hyundai!
A bit of judicious use of a chisel has removed the majority of the solvent that was left behind, it reminded me of chiselling off all the sound deadening from the floor of my mini years ago
Also got myself a magic sponge, it appears they really are magic!
Getting ever closer to slotting the new engine in!

I've also removed the front suspension now and stripped the lot down ready for shot blasting.

You definatly wouldn't want to drive with it open tho my hot side is against the firewall not the boot!

I have a sheet of alloy that I'll be fashioning a bulkhead from and a tube of goo to bond it in place with so it will be as air tight or otherwise as the original piece.
Once that's in I can get on with sticking gold over it
