Well I've been doing a few jobs since my last update, my fuel tanks well on its way, I've been drawing up my pedal box for the last few weeks and
I've spent all day on it today, pretty happy with it, should get it cut out next week, I was going to use Vouchts pedal box design off the haynes forum
But with the bias bar and different cylinders I just couldn't get it to work, all my ratios have work out as I want them, so all being well it will be sweet

The pedals will have tubes in between them





Also my mate sent me a pic of my exhaust collectors, possibly doing my manifold with him next weekend

Well had a awesome day today! Been up and seen my mate at Primary Designs in Thame today, was a long day but we got my exhaust all fabricated and tacked up, he's going to get it finish welded during the week, the primary lengths are all within 5mm! I will let the photos do the talking

Right no updates for a few weeks, still waiting on laser cutting and to get my exhaust back so I've got a little side project to keep me busy

Ive been after this for about a year as it's been sitting in a blokes yard, he finally sold it me last Saturday afternoon



I borrowed a trailer to get it home on, but it weighs about a ton so we had to strip it to get it up the garden!

The bed took 4 of us to lift and so did the stand



Gearbox was mint



Loads of bits to clean up
