Long time without a proper update as life has generally got in the way.

So where's she at....running properly now, had to reroute some of the fuel system, had to get one of the catch tanks we had made rewelded and the latest was to take off the front cross member to modify some more and give more clearance for the oil take-offs, etc.

Wiring is all tidied up now...





Cross member off...



Had to cut out a fair bit more...





Made up some new plates to go in...



Welding goodness...





And all painted....



Now the unit is pretty packed!!

The front end is all back together now, so close to finishing her it's ridiculous! Just have to make a new bracket to mount a new brake master cylinder, we've decided to separate the fronts and rears, and then bleed her again. Then mapping!!

So some photos from the weekend...

Cross member and suspension all back on...



Plenty of clearance for the oil take-off now...





And she's looking awesome!!

Thank you. It's definitely not standard anymore at the rear and the look will divide opinion, but that's what we were aiming for.
