I picked up a windscreen now for the mojo so I dont have to butcher the bodywork :D

and to add insult to injury to my purse strings I have almost completed on another rental property so I am skinter than skint now... all for the greater good apparently.

so this mojo build may take a little longer than the no plan

It has been a while since I really did anything on the mojo and to be honest that is because I have not had the spare cash to throw at it.

I have been looking at the exhaust situation and that has been a bit of a challenge but I have now found a possible solution so instead of trying to explain how I am going route it I am just going to show you when I have done it.

The other thing is the Donor car has been in my yard for a while now and frankly parts are not selling off it so I am going to strip out what I think will sell then then I am going to get it scrapped asap as I am fed up of seeing it.

I started removing the loom out the other day and that was easy till I go to the ECU and fords being ford they put a plate over the ecu to stop it being taken out so I had to get the grinder out.

Once the loom is out and the car is stripped then I will be get it removed and from there I can really start doing a bit more. As you can see I am in no major rush to get anything done quickly ?:D

Unfortunately it was the other 3 male owners who treated it like a hire car

I have been pottering about with the mojo just the odd hour here and there. I refitted all the fibreglass the other day so i could see how well the exhaust will fit. I have started to make up mounts for the silencer and got it sitting somewhere near.

I then need to tack up the exhaust as well which by the looks of it won't be too much of an issue and I think I have enough bends and what not laying about to do it.

Once the exhaust is on and done then I really need to look at how to mount the alternator as this is now going behind the engine...

I have managed to pinch a few hours in the garage over the last few days and I have got the exhaust mounted where I want it.

I have also planned the routing for the exhaust now as well. I need to cut the 3 bolt exhaust flanges off as the bottom one hangs super low under the car so that will just scrape!!!

getting the fibreglass to line up is going to be an absolute nightmare I am sure of it but I will cross that bridge when I get to it :D
