I'm liking the tool rack, most pleasing and very useful 8)
Many thanks, the tool rack has attracted a lot of attention, especially on the engineering forum, guess no one else paints them to look bright!

Because I had a hole load of billet be rude not to use it right? Exactly so I have started a water pump pulley, then I will make a VX power pulley 21 tooth, then finally the water inlet that I prototyped a year or so ago, enjoying my new kit and the practice of machining.
Because I don’t have one big enough bit of billet, I will make a hat then the grooved disc, then I will assemble and friction weld together. Then off to the ballancer and then hard anodised finished clear.

Been busy sadly on some non Moggy bits, but thought id share, my gen 1 Boxster is back on the road, so id thought id make all the bits, one you can't buy and two the bits that i want!.
1. Momo Prototipo steering wheel and boss
2. My own paddle shifters, CNC out of ally, the switches 3d printed and all hand finished, inc wiring
3. RS door pull, like the rennline 996 ones
4. manual looking gear knob, i know my box is tipronic, just want to be different.

This includes, new factory hard top, new race seats and belts, race rollcage, extinguisher and race battery, stripped of all the unnecessary things, carpets, AC, sound proofing etc, new brakes, discs, pipes, new radiators RACE 40% bigger, new tyres, full service, inc gearbox service, all liquids new. exterior will have race decals 3M Dynoc bonnet wrap, guards red wing mirrors and roundals on doors and bonnet.

Need to add, VDO oil temp/pressure gauges to low dash, and might even flock the dash as well?

All the big works done by Darren Campbell of CSCR in Isle Brewers, very happy with my new look gen 1 Porsche Boxster

Completed steering wheel, boss spacer and paddles, need to add 3ohm resister in line, for the airbag loom and swap out the tiptronic wiring, they run a single pole double toggle, eg each side is up and down, i have up right and left down......

I will change the paddle bracket, once its all working, i feel it should mimic the angle of the steering wheel, might even taper it as well, still like everything its taken ages just to get here.
the boss shown is the spacer no the final boss, subject to paddle/indicator position will determine how deep the spacer needs to be, then i can machine down to perfect spacing.
