Just done a volume test on my own designed petrol tank and it holds 55 litres not including fuel lines and filler neck. So pretty please with that.

Love the look of the carbs, and there is more room than I thought there would be for them, so with that in mind I went out and bougtht one of the low profile manifolds so there should be bgs of room

The book tank is about 24"x10"x7". So, it won't fit, unless you put it on top of the diff cage.

As it's been 4 years since my last update, it's about time I did another one.

After been given a challenge by another member, I've got my finger out since Christmas.
It will be easier for me to say what I've got left do, so here's my list.

Finish wiring dash gauges,
Finish boot area when panel arrives (Vmax)
Bleed Brakes and adjust handbrake,
Wheel alignment,
Finish trimming inside the car,
Get the engine fine tuned on a rolling road,
Fit mirrors,
Find new steering wheel,
Fit harnesses when i buy some at Stoneleigh.

Here's a few pic's and it has changed colour.

Hopefully everything will be completed by the end of June.

I got it off ebay, I think it was for a wide body Westfield, I did have to do a bit of trimming to get it to fit.
