EXCELLENT Janne,

Thought you had been quiet for a bit and that is the reason why, and a bloody good reason. All in time for the good weather coming to, in about 6 months.....

Well done, we know it was a lot of hard work to get to where you are now but it looks like it has all been worth it.

Very Nice...... AndyH

Smile Fantasic news Janne

Hi Janne

Reading that your build is now on the road has bought a huge smile to my day

I have been following your build progress avidly.

Your Roadster has turned out fantastic & is everything that I hoped my own build would be

A huge well done on such a well built car, you should feel very proud of your achievement.

Enjoy the drive

Wow, what a stunning Roadster , nice one Janne

I noticed you have changed your mirrors from an earlier photo, did the original mirrors cause you a problem at the test ?

cheers
andy

Thanks for the nice words boys

Handy, the only problem I have with the other mirrors was that I didnīt se anything but the rear wings in them
Now I have three models of mirrors Iīm not wich I will use.

In fact the tests went really well, not a single thing they complained at!!

They were really nice, in the paper they wrote 105hp

2.0L Pinto skimmed and ported head, FR32 camshaft, twin Weber 45:s
105hp.... HIhihihi

Your right, I would have thought more around the 95hp mark

Only joking of course!

Nice car

Hi boys and girls!!
Itīs really time for a update it has been a long and boring winter but I have making some upgrades with my roadster...

First I changed the cylinderhead to a head with big valves and fully ported and pollished from JE Motors.



Next job was to change to a 2.4 ratio steering rack and I got new wheels and new Toyo R888 so now Iīm only waiting for better weather.

The engine has been set up and runs fantastic... but itīs extremly cold in 120 miles an hour without helmet when itīs only +4 degres
