Now I have come a little further with my handbrake cluster. 
I need sort all wires to my gauges and then it will look better.

Drawn a mount for my 3 meters instead of 2 that I had before
C1MVZCp.jpg
It did not turn out so well as the meter on the far left will not be visible when driving and there is a risk that it will touch the leg.

Then Mr. Mapper thought I should get a better broadband lambda.
So you I had to get a 4th gauge and it is very tight in our cars.
I think this can be good in the end.

A redesigned shiftlight bracket with space for gear indicator

The smaller rearview mirror with a suction plug  falls down a little now and then.
So a new bracket was printed so it can be mounted with double-sided adhesive tape instead. so now I can not get rid of it instead. :-)

This past weekend, a fairly important stronghold for this project emerged.
My aluminum bracket for my compressor. It feels significantly more robust than my 3d printed. :-)

After a bit of fixing, it fit perfectly. :-)

Now I hope my 90mm long M6 screws will come soon. Had ordered 80mm but they only seem to have 5mm
in thread in alu which feels a bit meager. 90mm I have to cut a few mm.
But better that, get satisfied when I have to pull hard in Alu, it has happened too many times that it has become a thread pie.

More next time.
Regards, Per

Any chance i can buy one from you?
I love my smol mirror, but sick and tired of buying 1-2 a year as the suction part does not last long.

If you are worried about stripping the thread, then it can be a good idea to put a helicoil or timesert in the bracket right from the start. That way you can tighten it to pretty much 'normal' values like in steel.

 

It reinforces the threads a lot. Quite common/normal on aerospace bits to always put a thread insert in alu parts for this reason.

 

Bye, Arno.

Yhea thats a good idea. But that wil be my second opttion, I dont want to take apart the supercharger.

Anyway, yesterday I got my longer screws, had to cut them off 5mm so now I have slightly more then 11mm thread depht

and supercharger is boted in place with screws tightened to 9Nm as Rotrex recommend.

If the threads ould give up and some time , I will use unicoil.

 

Thanks Arno.

Wheel suspension is put back together.
These are the front brackets for the lower support arms in the back that I have reinforced.

I had intended to change the tank but that did not happen this time. 

So I had to cut up around the service cover for the fuel pump to be able to replace it without loosening the entire tank.

Acc to Vocky recommendation.

Has been working a lot with the interior design.
It became a 3rd variant of gaugeholder, new handbrake cluster and new the new shifter mechanism all installed

Now it's getting really close. :-)

Now.
It's time to get out.

Well she is started and test driven.
It did not start so well with my new meters not working. Itched myself in the skull, rooted among the wires
for a while because after a few hours I realized that the fuse might need to be put in.Inserted the fuse and tada they worked.
Time for a test drive. When I test drive, I notice that the brake servo does not work, I have never before thing with overcharged
so this is new to me and wondering if I connected properly.
Wondering if the vacuum valve is in the right place and according to the internet it would do it.
Starts looking for leaks disconnects and tests on stuff but finds nothing. Maybe the non-return valve is completely stuck.
Takes it off and blows in it and feels for the right direction, it seems to work.
puts it back according to how it opens when I blow in it and compares with the picture I took earlier, it is not in the same place anymore.
Start and now the brake servo works. Yay now it seems to work. :-)
But not really, ON idle when the engine gets hot, the idle oscillates a bit with the lambda value oscillates lots between 12 to 17.
But I'll check this out on Monday, so I hope it works out.
Then it will probably soon be off to mapping.
Then we can hope that there will be some effect. :-)

Anyone else here who has thought about the mileage cost of your cars? Until Wednesday, the calculated mileage cost this year is on my car
only 1.3 million sec. on Wednesday after another 150 meters of driving, it dropped to only 900,000 sec. :-)

But now to another problem that I have been thinking about for many years and I need your help. She has never been given a name.
My previous civic was named Isabell, but I have never found anything nice. My wife likes Ellionor, but there is a certain other car that has that name.
But the other day a name came to me, Mathilda. Does it work, what do you think?

In between, a friend asked if I could do a side scoop that took in a little more air for his speedster.
This is the PA Motorsport side scoop. :-)

We see, I´m not sure. But if someone wants a set I´m happy to make them.

 

Now I have the std variant and the motorsport variant.

An Update.

I had a meeting with the guy which will map my car and there is some issues.

I cant sat if they have been there always or if the problems are new.

Anyway all seems fine, all values are good everything is functioning well

but when running on idel the car suddenly dies, sometimes after 1 minut sometimes after 3.

 

So now I have desided since the season here in sweden is almost over anyway to halt the project for a while.

I have a friends car which I need to put together and need to fix things on our family car and do some house work etc.

Hopefully  I come back with new energy before the end of the year.

And gets well prepaire for 2022 season.

It´s a bit bittersweet.

 

Br, Per

Well the car is now under a cover and I really hope I can continue working with her before the end of the year and

get prepaire for next year.

Before I placed her under a cover I took some goodbye for now, see you later pictures.

 

5mm on each side of gear cables to seat.

Thank you SQS for the support.

Anyone in here who could have any idea why my car is suddenly turning off on idle?

Sure it a K24 and other engine management system.

But the relays are the same same and ignition key systmete is the same for example.

Start with logging whats happening in the ECU, probably tuning related, how does it control idle?

Hi Mattias, on the log file we couldnt see anything wrong, but I will look again.

 

Not sure how it controls the idle honestly, what to chose between?   :-)

Since you don't have electronic throttle you should have an idle valve? On top of either you use ignition timing to hold it steady. Also som engines like a little richer idle like 0.95. Look in the logs if it leans out, tps drops, idle valve, trigger sync etc
