Got the car on its wheels today and hopefully I should get the rear arches fitted over the Xmas break.
It's staring to take shape now and I can start to bolt on all the nice bits soon.

I had a bit of time off between Christmas and New Year so managed to fit the carbs and sort the dizzy for the freshly rebuilt engine/box, so one step closer to Blyton. Just need to sort an issue with the hydro suspension and some play in the front bearing.

Well, I have a little bit of wiring to sort. Two front tyres and a suspension setup, I think I will put some kad rear brackets on so I can get everything adjusted, change the oil and a spanner check.

Can't wait..

CCC getting set up by Rob at Minisport following a cam change from 649+ to SW8. What a lovely Gent he is.
I was very pleased with 116 bhp and 89lbft but the valves bounced at 6900 rpm.
Just a few more jobs to finish off and be ready (like fitting a rev limiter).

I wouldn't bother with the rev limiter, sounds as if you have one fitted already! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'd prefer temporary limiting rather than permanent!
