Gonna see how these look vapour blasted (the manifolds Iíve fabricated) as I quite like the colour of natuaral Ali.

If they donít look good enough, Iíll revert to powder coating.

Most powder Coat Chrome finishes come out looking more like Ally than chrome   ;)

Just sat down with a mug of Coffee and read through from the beginning, very inspirational work, enjoyed reading every page, looks stunning.

We should definitely meet up when both cars are on the road, maybe a cruise togather down to the the streets of Knightsbridge and Mayfair and show folks that you don't need a supercar to turn heads....

Is yours not finished?

Mine is currently on the road, but am just about to evict the single Holley Card setup, and move in the new girlfriend (Megasquirt EFI), but hopefully only a few weeks to get it up & running ok.
Will be pulling the motor apart soon-ish though, as something isn't right with it, and I'd rather tackle it before something serious happens.

Your car is outstanding btw, I can't begin to imagine how many hours, and how many £'s have gone into it.

Something very odd happens to the order of pics when I post on here.

I select them in order of progress, but the system here seems to kindly re-arrange them for me.  Apologies, I guess I need to do them is maller numbers :-/

Jon,
Its actually a glitch with Postimage that seems to upload them last first - they are aware of the problem, but seem uninterested in fixing it.
In the meantime, I have given you a "MODIFY" button, so you can edit your own posts and cut/paste the pictures in correct order

Jon, I find the preview button is always handy before hitting that final commit

They look terrific and definitely improve the neighborhood.

No traffic wardens to ticket you for parking on double yellows and a slipway ?!
