Can't see much realy but there is progress. Tunnel tops are off and being stored somewhere where they can get damaged.

Now have my bodywork - Thanks to Saturn. you won't see it for a while though but the special offer tempted me into action.

Shox , Thanls 3GE for thata Special offer.

And have started on the engine mounts thanks to some nicely crafted plates to mount on the Cologne Block. Thanks to 3GE. They fit perfectly

Smile Cool stuff

Sounds like you are coming on in leaps & bounds Rob

I knew that once you had the chassis, it would be full steam ahead with your build

Been a bit slow realy, cold weather, being ill, being too busy at work, christmas, etc..

Been back out and got further on with the engine mounts this evening. Just an hour or so but chipping away.

I have a cunning plan as well if my Plenum chamber sits too high. I think it's a stroke of genius.

Lets see if I can get the engine mounted in place and off the crane before the end of the month. That will be progress, although I have a Stag weekend to go to the weekend after next.

I also seem to be loosing space in the garage rather than gaining it.. Ho Hum.. But I am generating a few which will go towords a prop in the not to distant future.

Yet another boring update, but after digging at the back of the garage I found my spare 24V 2.9 and attached to was my spare throttle cable. Glad I did not spend 20 on ebay.

I have also been finishing off and sparing the engine mounting arms over the last couple fo weeks and orderd 3mm plate to make up the chassis plates. Hopefully that will arrive before the weekend.

Fixings have also been ordered to aid in attaching the bodywork.

Also picking up a DOHC at the weekend, not sure what I am going to use it for.

Got a bargain pair of refurbed front calipers on the bay, saves me cleaning up a set from the collection.
