Had a play today as i had to stay local to home

my actuator was hitting the comp housing,So i set out to make one that fits

First off i mocked it up with card

Click the image to open in full size.

Transfered to 3mm steel

Click the image to open in full size.

Sides bent round for strength and actuator fitted ( just needs finishing off with 120 on the da)

Click the image to open in full size.

And as i was on i thought id have a look at making a throttle cable bracket
So i made it on card first

Click the image to open in full size.

Transfered onto steel

Click the image to open in full size.

All bent ready for pressed holes in side and welding.
( Finish off next time im in the garage )

Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

Gonna be prepped then crackle blacked

Actuator bracket going to be blacked or zinc plated
got loads of stuff to go to strippers and platers now

Next update probably be on home made turbo damper just got to get some 8mm rose joints

Grabbed myself a few hours on the car Monday and did a few little job's ive been meaning to do for a while

first off i bought a front diff strengthening plate ages ago and wanted to change the 6mm mounting bolts to 8mm so i drilled and tapped the mounting holes out
and fitted the new studs
Click the image to open in full size.
then i opened the holes out in the strengthening plate to 8mm
Click the image to open in full size.
then i opened out the holes in the cover
Click the image to open in full size.

then i started making an alli plate to accept the focus rs start button and the focus dummy bild button
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.
now as im using a 4x4 centre console i need the plate to be removable as there's a mounting screw underneath to hold the gearstick surround to the centre console.
So i had to come up with a spring clip that will hold it in but can allow it to be removed if needed
Click the image to open in full size.
tried it a few times and im sure it will do the job just fine

all welded
