fitted the new pads and fixed the rear cylinder issue,

whilst underneath found out that the uj on my prop has been clipping the tunnel on heavy acceleration.

more tunnel tweaking to follow!

it was tricky and a bit of a squeeze but no harder than any other engine would've been

had to mod and fabricate lots of bits but its all good fun

Sweet Man, i really like the industrial look as a backdrop, might have to give it a go, ive got a mate whos starting a business outa his hobby and wants to use the bus and me kids as some of his portfolio, so i might deligate the job to him due to my massive lack of skillness in all things photographic;) but will note the places youve found, cheers dude :D

I see a few of these cars lingering around outside local repair shops. Yours looks top-notch, and it's all the more impressive with the work you put into it :tu ... The stickers look cool on this car as well.

you can subscribe to threads too i think which messages you when theres new content on the thread, but thats a tad overkill in my opinion, a bookmarked list is all i ever do
