I'll throw in a coke!

I have my suspicions though just need confirmation!

Hmm, a suspicion, how can I put this politely Duncan, You don't have a clue! Yes I think that's it!

I'll be honest here, i dont like the interior mods particuarly the first wheel and the gearknob, but it's your car and everybody has different taste.

But the exterior really looks great, and i'd love to see it in the metal.

I'll spill the beans. What Splondikes doing is, now the space shuttle being retired, he's getting the engine from that and having shoe horned into the engine bay. Should go well.

I am quite a patient chap Andy... which is lucky !

Whilst it has been away I have re-furbed a spare set of rear lights and they seem to have come up ok...

I have also made a decent radio holder to replace the horrid unversal thing I am using at the moment...

Also the engine work is picking up pace so here are some teaser pics...

New custom made exhaust manifolds, freshly wrapped to help keep the heat down a bit....

With the M30 lump, gearbox and prop out it will give me a chance to give the under bonnet area a damned good clean up... Next some inlet manifold work is being done on the new setup by a specialist who is good at welding aluminium. Now hopefully the pace will pick up a little and I can give some more updates ;)
