Beetwenty's B10 2 door

Last night a friend painted a vent cover that I have been working on.
 
 
 
My vent cover started life as a pair of fibreglass copies of the 1200 coupe vent covers.

 

  • I then cut each side down from 3 sections to 2.
  • Fibreglassed the two pieces together
  • Added a flat fibreglass section infront and behind joined part.
  • Cut off and filled in the standard 1200 mounting points.
  • Used body filler and then high build primer as my base to sand it all smooth.
  • And finally paint.


 
I also purchased a spare vent cover and removed the lips from the underside everywhere the original part contacted the body of my car.

 
Removing this height allowed me to have the top of my new part at the same height as the original vent cover.
 
Im pleased with how it looks on the car.

 
Another step closer to achieving my goal of owning a "GX" 1000.

tracking number????
 
 
I say that because,.... ahem... 
my dash cover, door trims,  Guard badges, the new D emblems/stickers never showed up in the post... 
Love your work Dundee.
 
Made my night.

Love it Ash! I could never think of cooling the back of the head and top of bellhousing like that! 
 
Could make a Stealth snorkel as well!

I never thought of it like that D,I just wanted a sportier look for the 1K  
 
Pics from this morning to show you guys the new chin spoiler, vent and thinner coupe seats... and also a pic of a sticker that has been hiding in plain sight on my car for years. (Kind of an "Easter Egg" for strangers looking over my tiny car at car shows etc)

Sweet jigga! Its got all the coupe bits but is a better visibility and lighter Tudor 
 
Whats the next plan of attack? A14 and air con, you have to do something for your comfort as well
not just the 1Ks narcism which should be very healthy by now

Im still on the go slow because of cash.
 
My re-ringed A14 is now going to go into my 1200 (after I save up to rebuild an old A14 head)
 
1000 will recieve a second A14 eventually.
(Which I have).
 
Currently new A14 is...
 
bored .5mm oversize, decked, new pistons.  (Had piston tops taken down slightly  to keep my comp ratio to 10:1).
 
The block was decked more than I wanted and pistons were slightly sticking out when at full height.
 
Crank bearing surfaces have been cleaned up.
 
New timing chain, rings, conrod and crank bearings.
 
ARP head studs.
 
GX head, new valves,  GX double valve springs.
 
 
Also have a radiator, AC condensor, fans stashed away.
 
I have a front brake swap ready to go, just need to sort out brake lines and master cylinder.
 
Got a H150 diff centre 3.9:1 ratio to get better fuel economy and also should be stronger for A14 torque. (Still need to buy a spacer).
 
Have 60 series 4 speed for A14 torque.
 
Im also going to try and buy a single dcoe weber inlet manifold as a tempory measure before eventually sorting a pair of HS4 SU carbs for my A12T maniflod.
 
But as for immediatley now, im still saving to have savings, plus i have to put cash through my daily driven 1200. Tyres is next on the list there.
 
So still constantly  but slowly chipping away at it behind the scenes.

Thinking next (price dependant) will be to have my A14 flywheel machined to the GX dimensions taking it to approx 6 1/2 kgs.
 
The ebay 2.95kg cromo ones sound ridiculously light when compared to the stock 10kg-ish weight.
 
So thinking this is a more sensible path to take on a road driven car.
 
 
On a side note D... the new air vent allows a ridiculous ammount of fresh air into the heater box.
 
Open up the flaps on the bottom and its a fresh breezy footwell for me.
So it turned out to be a superb summer feature for the 1000.

A14 with high comp run surprisingly well with stock carb is you wanted to save from using a weber
Many suzuki guys run a 1.6 baleno engine in their Sierra/jimmnies also use a single SU with
a simple adaptor to their inlet manifolds to rid the downdraft emissions carb and get a leg up on hp.
 
I would just leave the flywheel at 10kg you will enjoy its driveability more than lightened as I found
this out driving my Citroen 2cv and older 1200 beetles that had like 12-15kg flywheels, you could
never stall them and torque in all gears from all parts of the rpm curve made them more pleasant
to drive everywhere than when I used lightened flywheels. I ended up going back to standard.
You can use the A10 flywheel if you wanted a lighter unit than A14 but I would spend money on
that aspect to lighten them its only good for high rpm shifts and response up high.
 
Its like stored torque energy when ever you want it with heavy flywheels. Climbs hills at low rpm.
 
I would save $$ & source a USA 3.45 as your A14 will be noisey vs 59 or 70mm stroke and waste fuel
 
HB35 (3.545:1 ratio), highway gear, low torque ratio was only used in USA, mostly in the MPG fuel economy champion B310s. USA Catalog  Factory Service Manual

I already have a single weber on the car, so the plan for another manifold is just to shorten the time frame for my engine swap and just use what I have.
Id like to put the new a14 in with the GX head and be done with it.
It would mean I am mismatching ports a little with an A14 inlet manifold until I sort the SU's.
But it should motivate me to get it done.
 
If I like the single weber on an A14 then the new manifold and 1000's current weber might make its way over to the 1200.
 
Im actually quite keen on trying a pair of Brittish SU's on my set up.
(Probably opening pandoras box with this decision).
 
I plan on purchasing new, and having them tuned at a local carb tuning shop.
Thinking the British SU rather than a Hitachi SU is a better path to take for tuning/parts avaliability in years to come.
I might as well use the most common and well understood variant of rarer parts.
 
Listening to what you are saying about flywheel weight being my friend, I might meet you in the middle and just use the A12 flywheel thats on the car now, think they are approx 9KG and its free.

Oh you have the sidey web already thats a good thing then!
As for GX style sidedraft manifold, doesnt SW in sydney
have one to suit both heads and at a steal for 250aud?

9kg is good, just a note the speedway A series guys used
a 14kg billet flywheel I got hold cheaply and I tried it on 
my A10 stocky and it transformed its low end and chirped
even in 3rd gear going up hills.
 
Its as you know a kinetic energy storage device

I have looked at the SW listing before.
He has a good cheap price indeed...but..
 
I only have a single 40 on the 1k currently, so will be looking for another single DCOE manifold.
Just A14 pattern.
 
Getting hold of a rowland one is my current plan.
 
I think recarb sell complete kits, so when I am ready ill get in touch and see how open to the idea of "manifold only" they seem to be and decide from there.
 
If new 38 DCOE were avaliable I think id be more open to the idea of twins on an SW manifold.

You could use a biscut sized rectangular box plenum for single dcoe
