Looking good, should be a nice combo once in the car.

Today i've spent 4 hours removing the thermostat from the mrs fiesta. What an arse that was to get out.

Yeah it does Andy!
Smiling like a dog with two di*ks at the moment! Not sure what I should do tomorow though, kind of run out of jobs to do! Apart from buy stuff and wait for fabbys bodywork to arrive. Try and get some values for sensors for mega squirt? try and figure out my r6 tb's build a footwell for passenger side. (oh sh*t there is actualy alot to do...)

Cant wait to mount it, then it realy will feel real!!!

yeah tell me about "money" holding you back, me too

engine being trial fitted this weekend (for engine mount welding), then take it all apart for chassis painting then start building up again & parts will be staying in this time

tho i,m fairly confident my car will be finished by christmas, plan is IVA January, probably a retest then hopefully on the road for February, stoneleigh show in May.

sorry to hear about selling your boat, i know you put alot of work into it

Stoneleigh soon comes around... I had planned to be there this year but all of a sudden there it was and I had no chance...

Might well be a different bag of onions next year though
