wiring diagram

So I've been trimming the wiring diagram for everything that I need.
I tried to remove every single wire that I think it's useless and with all wires and relays off I think I loose some good grams!!

Pic of the diagram

Big benefit of coil's is droop travel with higher rates. Gravel cars and even tarmac rally car's need droop travel or stand to loose out on very important traction. Stiff t-bars have a huge image on total droop.

Droop doesn't care what type of spring it is, unless you let it come unseated. Spring rate and corner weight will give you static deflection which is also the droop travel. Maybe you are talking about rising rates in which case yes, you will get more droop than the equivalent linear spring. But if you use a linear rate coil spring you don't get any more droop.

If you let the main spring come completely unloaded then even though the wheel may be on the ground you've only got 20 pounds on it. I guess that's better than nothing and if you are in deep snow or something it might still act like a rudder.

Make sure you have the right wiring diagram. I noticed you said a "70", but with that parcel area and oil tank hole that is a '73.

So, about the engine...

It is an original from 73, MFI, one piston and head is completely destroyed.
So since the engine is opened it will have a new crankshaft STD, 2.2S piston and cams, and we'll mesure and test every other material to check what damage it have if it have any.

So I've visited the car, the front and rear fenders are done and fitted, doors are done and maybe next Saturday will be put in place. The engine will start to be reconstructed in August.

Not sure I understand what you mean as the car is on a dolly with the a-arms removed?

I need help from all of you since I don't have a lot of experience in this area...

Some photos of everything that was done until now.





How it started



Unmounted and cleaned everything



Replaced rusty parts



With the primary after sandblasting






And trying the new doors.


This is a slow going project with the final purpose of racing.
Trying to do now all fiberglass panels, see if all fits and then start buying parts to start mounting the car.

What do you think i should do next?

Poetry in motion!!!!!!!

That makes a lot more sense. And yes, it should've been removed

Almost done with all fiber, just missing the back lid and mount the door locks.
Meanwhile we've put back all axles to take the car to the body shop to repair all little rust details we found and do the rollbar.

OK, I'm almost done with fiberglass.

What's next:
  • Need to finish the door hinges, and see if it fits.
  • Rear bonnet, need to find a mold.
  • Front bonnet I don't know yet if I do a new one (the one I have it's too heavy)
  • Do the coconuts for front fenders
  • Rear Lights fitting in fiberglass

It is all is left from FG.

After is going to a bodyshop to do a proper rollbar.

Doors - Done with frames on
Rear Lights - On process
Front Light (blinkers) - On process
Front Light - Coconuts done, need to test if it fits

It's been a long way, and working with fiberglass it's not easy. I can "see light in the end of the tunnel", I hope this Saturday the car is away from that FG place and can travel on Monday to do the rollcage and small adjusts on the body.
