Looks good mate! Is that a custom rad? Looks slightly beefier, though that could just be the silver. 205 oil cooler? I've got one of those laying on the shelf, but with the intercooler and condensor I'm not convinced I'll have anywhere to put it.

Looks awesome though, the attention to detail makes the entire thing look great.

Right i had an exciting nite, i had to be taken to hospital after cutting my finger cutting the exhaust. Pretty deep cut had to have 3 stitches and the cut was to the bone. Anyway, car starts, just need to finish exhaust and put prop back on.
Will post updated pics later hopefully.

Ouch, always remember: Car is always second place. Your safety comes in first. But I know all about it. Accidents can always happen.

Good work on the car mate! Really thrilling to see!

Nice one Adam. Looking great and probably sounding great. When will you have it on the road. Do you mind if i ask what the insurance like on it now?

How's the finger?

Cheers

Its already on the road mate, it actually sounds ok at the mo, but i am having a stainless exhaust system made for it on friday, i will get some pics of that being made and fitted.
The insurance TBH is not really any different.
Only a few more jobs to do on it, but i'm not being mad with the engine as to date its only done 30miles on the rebuild!!!!

Have done around 50miles or so on the engine now and it pulls extreemly well, the car is so much torquey with this lump.
