    yes phil
    today finally made some real progress, engine started today and ticked over but could not run it for long as no water in. fitted the new prop shaft i had made this week so if all goes well tomorrow once the water is in it should drive.

    things are slowly coming together, topped engine up with water but still could not run it properly as got a leak on the heater hose due to crap jubilee clips, but on the good side engine does sound way better and making more boost than ever.
    just got the gt dash top to put on and it should be done on the inside.
    im hoping i can get on with painting the bumpers and grill in chrome this weekend but we will see.

    started the process of painting the bumpers and grills today, got them all rubbed down and a nice coat of shiney black.





    got to leave these now till tuesday before i can put the chrome paint on.

    also changed out the badges in the rear pilliars for chrome ones .

    finally ran the engine today for 20 minutes just to get it up to temp, i have the fitech set at 900rpm ticking over and it runs a treat and sounds awesome with all the popping and banging. after 20 minutes temp was only at 65 degrees so should be good in traffic. tick over needs to come down abit and once the car is up and running it will need some one to put a decent tune on the fitech .
    its going to be next weekend before the bumpers and grills are done so im going to be doing all those little jobs that never get done .

    You don't put a tune in the fitech - it's not that advanced, it's self learning - you just drive the car.

    i dont mean a full on tune i just mean a basic set up, there is alot you can change on the fitech and i just dont want to mess it up.
    there are alot of people changing all sorts on you tube and i just dont want to go down that road, i just want it to start and run every time i turn the key.

    o on with the bumpers and trim,
    to be honest i am impressed with the chrome paint,









    there not proper shinny chrome but they do look chrome, if you know what i mean.

    when i had the paint on my bumpers i described it as like a really good bright anodised aluminium.....

    it does look amazing with just the 'chrome' over the gloss black, but does dull a bit with the lacquer going on...

    chrome paint looks great.
    Medusa + injection = too much torque for the dyno ..https://youtu.be/qg5o0_tJxYM

    Did my front indicator and rear lamp reflectors in a aerosol chrome effect paint , yes it does come out a bit aluminium but gets better as it dries out.
