After finishing the front suspension I redid the headlight wiring yet again. With modern cabling I managed to get an extra lead through for future use. So instead of the factory supplied setup which I found impossible I've got 6 wires, all high current capable, fully encased in heat shrink which can easily slide back and forth through the light stalks. No plugs on either end yet.
Next up I prepared the engine and gearbox. Fitting took about 2 hours on my own then spent the next day tidying the wiring. At first I wanted to complete the engine install then tidy up but it was easier to just do it as I went along.
The only issue I have is the cable to the front RH lower sensor (Oil Temp?) is very long. I've tried a few different approaches but have it wrapped round the oil cooler for now. I'll have to find a neater solution eventually.
Minor panic. When I prepped the engine I couldn't find the clutch release bearing. Eventually found it already fitted to the bell housing. After installing the engine and tidying up the wires I suddenly realised I hadn't checked if it was properly fitted or just placed in situ! An email to Derek confirmed that it is now fully fitted at the factory so I didn't need to pull the engine back out after all. And relax......
Every day sees a new order on Amazon or visit to Halfords/Screwfix for some little bit or other but I'm used to that now. I bought the Caterham toolkit as it had everything required to build the car. As we say in Scotland - Aye, right!
Spent 3 hours with my wire strippers and bespoke crimper fitting econoplugs at both ends of the headlight cabling. Very pleased with it now. If I need to upgrade anything I just need to fit a suitable plug and it will pop in to the existing bowls (talking about LED headlamps/DRL's etc)
