Mine has a HANS seat installed, which I've removed, including the rapid extraction shell (carbon), and I'm starting on cleaning her and tidying the wiring.

There's several missing fasteners from the body work too, so I'll have to see where I can get those from.

At least the belts are in date until 2017, so I wont need to replace those.

The extinguisher is a mechanical cable pull type, I'll probably replace that with the electric one off the Fiesta.

We left the extraction shell in place and fitted bag seat moulds on top.

The fasteners are from Speciality Fasteners 2600 series
http://www.specialty-fasteners.co.uk...turn-fasteners
Post a pic of the end of the fastener, it'll have a symbol showing orientation and a number, the number is the shaft length to help you order more. They're all the same. The receptacles are swaged. If there is a minimum order quantity then order more as we need some receptacles and fasteners.
You shouldn't need to replace the belts if you're sprinting?

If you're struggling to get in, shift your bum forwards and that brings your shoulders down. I don't think you're taller than me and I've loads of room. The carbon seat is great for several reasons; it brings your shoulders forwards to allow space for the Hans behind, it locates positively for the bag seat and it also allows for safer extraction if the worst happens. 30 degree Hans if you're wondering.

These are from the front cover. I assume they're used all round. I have none on the engine cover at the moment.

From next year belts need to be in date in Racing and Sports Libre cars.

"10.1.11. Hill Climb Super Sports Cars, Sports Libre Cars and Racing Cars must be equipped with a currently homologated FIA safety harness complying with K.2.1.3. or K.2.1.4 "

Another one of the MSAs bright ideas

These are Camlock 1/4 turn fasteners, Raceparts or Trident will have them, the grip length is the number on the head. There are 2 diameters available and you have the smaller one.
