I use all my own gear at home to work on my cars, only time i take my car into work is to paint in the booth. Or powdercoating  ;D

  

Must be good having access to powdercoating gear :D My subframe's with the powdercoaters at the moment, should be ready to collect actually!


Looking ace, nice colour to, can't wait to see it finished, and all the videos you will make ;)


Thanks, yea the colour is even better in person, it's hard to get a decent pic of it.

Major update time, as the biggest hurdle is out the way!

First up got the engine and subframe bolted up in place, lined up the mounts and tightened it all in position.

Spent a day on the wiring, most of it's connected, just needs tidying up and a few final connections.

Then got the gear linkage finished.

Mounted the exhaust... really hard to get a pic of for some reason :P

20140514_170954.jpg

Fitted the swirl pot, fuel pumps and lines into the boot.

Which left the major question, would it RUN??? I ran out of fuel hose and clips for the last bit of the return pipe, but I temporarily bodged it just to test it :D

youtube clicky

Success!

Hopefully all down hill from here. Very happy.
