Gits :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's not going to be super fast, custom parts to be made, lathes to finish building, steam engines to finish and others to start, that sort of thing! I'm on a bit of a "getting some projects off the list" effort atm, as I have some new ones I want to plan!

Well, it's nearly 12 months and progress has occurred, not enough to warrant photos yet though. For once, it's not only my business that has been the cause of this, but I'll divulge when there is a tangible thing to take a photo of.

So, last week I bought myself a book to bring some enthusiasm to the game

I've been after getting a copy for a while, but given my level of German, is taking a while to read!

With my level of German I'd only have shiny pictures to look at!

Every time I see a 363 the more I think about building something along the same lines. Dan's V8 does look to be a better option over the PRV V6 in terms of engine durability.

Are we talking faster than normal Chris time scale for this?
Well... not sure what to answer to that. Foggy standard time no less.

The company who were doing one of the custom components had issues friction welding them due to the diameter of the torque tube inner (the drive quill) and went bust, with me losing a useful number of drive train parts in the process.

Then, 18 months ago, I had a new idea how to do it in a way that I would be happy with. That idea didn't go away, but Fake is now significantly worse for wear. The shell was tired when I last drove it.

A car was advertised on Facebook. I accidentally bought it. Drove it, didn't enjoy it, drove it a couple more times, then lost mojo, it didn't feel how I remembered it should and I put it down to too many MX5 miles in between. Shell has sat at the back of the drive feeling sorry for itself for 13 months. Then ~ January, I had some motivation, fixed a few things and put an MOT on it. Have been using it as my main car pre lockdown, turns out I do still enjoy a properly working 340. Still a few more niggles until it is a fault free car, then I will see if it becomes a nice standard 340, or a Fake rebuild.
