    yes i know what you mean guys, it seemed a good idea at the time but sometimes less is more.

    got the under side painted today so it just a bit of stone chipping tomorrow and its done. in between painting today i masked up the gearbox so tomorrow i will chuck some paint on it and hopefully in the next week or two it can start going back together.

    finally got my lap top to down load some pics.
    just going to put a load of pics on and then explain whats been going on.





















    sorted out the flexi,s for the pedal box and got that fitted and in the process i have now put dyno mat on the floor pans as i am now going to fit a little bit of carpet . i have had the center bearing made for the crank where the layshaft of the gear box locates and the gearbox has now been topped up with fresh oil ready to be mounted on the engine during the week.
    i took the intake manifold of because it looked like it was cracked but as it turned out it was just the paint that had a crack in it so i stripped it all off and painted it purple just to tone the engine bay down abit.
    i have also stripped the wrap of the wheels and wing mirrors and with the exhaust back on i was able to fit the wheels and get the tina off the axle stands. it does look way better with out the copper wrap.
    the plan this week is to get the engine and box back in by saturday, connect up the clutch, make sure it works ok and then get the engine ready to run.

    yes that is one of the jobs on the list.
    i have had some really silly quotes for wrapping the bumpers in chrome ( 350 quid ) and also for having the bumpers chromed ( £750/£1400 ) so i think i am going to paint them in the alsa chrome. with doing them in the paint i can also do the front grill and rear light frames.
    theres still a few more parts in the engine bay that are going purple instead of the copper colour.

    i have had a bit of a result through the week,
    put the starter motor on and wired it up and turned the key, result engine turns over. one step closer so this weekends mission is to put everything back on the engine so that may be by next week i can try and start it.
