Well today (sunday) was the first time I could make a good start on the engine, so now its all set to drop in when i can get the car on 4 wheels to get down to the house.
As i was at it i made a carb heatsheld.

looks fantastic and a great weight saving, and with the arms and discs should make a good unsprung weight saving.


Great car :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
