Not done HomeBrew in 10 years, but with the brother in law moving just 100yards down the road, and having a house to himself... I think we will be starting our own brewing company.

For sure the various pics of the car look good. But seriously - stick in a link to how you produce 20% ABV @ 40p a litre!!! That could save us all enough to buy a lot of man cave toys!!!

been doing a bit on the trans tunnel.....yet another job which is a PIA, wish I had done it before putting on the side panels.
I have now riveted up the rear panel and the nearside trans tunnel, I have the other side marked out and ready to cut.....again I have been using double sided tape and it is working a treat, much better than messy sikaflex and no worries about whether using too much or too little#.....I will need to seal some areas but I think that is the case for everyone.

Kev, don't forget to drill a hole for harness mounts for the transmission side panels, I can imagine it being a PITA to do once riveted on.

TT the easiest option for you may be to get a centre punch in for the top of the tunnel and lightly indent it, this should then allow you to see from the outside of the tunnel where you need to drill.

Dont worry guys I did not miss it, the picture just shows the panel offered up I drilled all required holes before I riveted it on ( I deemed it a good idea to have some extra inspection type holes to give easier access to gearbox oil fill hole and some mounting point spanner access

Nearly finished the trans tunnel, but waiting for some rivets, so while waiting I decided I wanted to make my short shifter even shorter by around 30mm, I don't want to risk any more than that, but if I do I will make it so ~I can add "some" back on if needed....I think it is one of those thing where you suck it and see
have not threaded it yet just lathed off the thicker part near the thread down to enable a 10mm thread to be cut further down. Does anyone know what the lump off Ally does on a gearstick like this? held on with a circlip.
