As no-one seems the least bit interested in this project, I'll make this the last post until it's finished.....

 

I'm following it and you had likes and a comment yesterday. I'm following so many threads though I don't get time to catch up with everything in one sitting.

 

That engine looks a tight fit now you've started getting the rest of the gubbins in.

I’ve been watching with huge interest, as a previous 403 ( pickup) owner, who couldn’t find a use for it!

What you are doing amazes me, but I’ve no flippant/ daft comments to usefully add.

How it’ll end up I’ve no idea - and old age/ ill health precludes me from even thinking it , but I look forward to the finished product with considerable interest.

If this is what it takes to repurpose a substantial old (unviable ) beast - then good on ‘ yer.
It’s not me - but that doesn’t make it right/ wrong.

I applaud different - and this certainly fits that bill.

More technical updates please - cos I AM following, with considerable interest.

It’s what Autoshite is all about. Surely?

Thanks for taking the time to reply gents......much appreciated..........although engine bay is now a little congested, everything will fit...it's sitting a wee bit further forward than is ideal, but at least there's plenty of room round where the turbo sits, which is always the most inaccessible bit in its original location. If I need to get at stuff, we're going to most the rad in such a way that it can be removed easily. Aircon pump is coming off [only bit we're not using, which should free up some more space. Whilst the engine is out again, going to fit new timing belt, water pump and clutch, and make sure the DMF is in good condition.

How have I missed this thread until now?!?!

This is a hell of a project. Hat doffed to you for giving this a go. It’s fascinating to see the method you’ve gone for in fabricating this!

What's next ........well, once the engine is back in, [and running!], we're going to turn our attention to suspension. The elephant in the room was how we were going to get round the slightly thorny issue of the front track width. The 403 tapers inwards quite considerably from the a post to the leading edge of the front wings, and although we could just about get away with the tyre tread being under the arch at the rear end of the arch, it was certainly not under it at the front, which would have caused an almost certain tyre /bodywork interface..we contemplated reverse banding [narrowing] the front wheels, but that seemed a bit of a bodge.

We also tried rolling the front arches, but the steel is so thick, it was never going to really work. Solution........nip next door to where a Range Rover specialist lurks, and snaffle 4 rear wheel arch mouldings from a Discovery. We're going to chop out all four of the original arches, and stitch in the Disco ones, which are the correct profile, but wider. The nearside rear arch if full of wob, and completely the wrong shape, so that problem will also be solved.

Doing this will also allow us to fit an air ride kit I managed to snaffle off the internet for about a third of the new price. I had considered coilovers to get the ride height I wanted, but I wanted the most comfortable ride I could achieve...and that meant spending big bucks, and having to adjust with a spanner if I wanted to change anything.

So, by the end of the month the aim is to have her running and driving, with the suspension installed.........then comes the fun part....interior and paint....stay tuned!

Sorry I might have missed it. When it comes to the loom /ecu are you transferring the whole lot or are you running a dedicated loom and aftermarket ecu? The former would give great future potential for niceties like remote central locking and a decent oem sound system. Eitherway I thoroughly approve of all your work to date. Outstanding!
