I don't know what color it will eventually be painted. I've been thinking BMW Atlantis Blue. Or maybe that Spruce Green that new Toyotas have. Or maybe...
ginger_monkey, my dad bought one of those new 7D Canons, and I've been fortunate enough to mess around with it a bit. The garage has terrible lighting.

Intake manifold is almost finished, credit goes to my dad for all that hard work
Im just wondering what size pipe are you using here as i am going to do the same myself, and do they have a 90 degree bend on them too ya?
I would just like to say....wow. What an amazing build. I would love to build a mini like this, everything perfect. I wish I had enough money!!! Oh I wouldn't use the normal Samco hoses for fuel transfer (like above) they will not last long. The fuel will eat away at them, trust me. I would give it 2 months. You will need the Flurolined stuff (with a black liner).
Lush car though, fair play!

I'll probably be building a set of CBR based throttle bodies shortly after I get the car running;
CBR 954 by any chance? Looked into it myself

I'm currently trying to sort some fairly major issues out with Minitec so until I get everything dialed I don't think there will be all that much going on in this thread. Kam, 954 throttle bodies indeed. I've done a fair bit of reading and I would have no problem welding up aluminum runners. Another project for another day...
My buddy and I picked scooters and we're both very competitive people, so it's all downhill from here. You can see the custom stainless muffler peeking out at the bottom of the picture:
Damn motor vehicles

Thanks guys, I rolled it out and shot this pic yesterday.
Well I must say sir, it's not even finished and I already want mine to look as half as good as that when i'm finished!!
Unbelievably sexy car!
Can't wait for more updates... If there are any
