I should be around tomorrow.

Interesting thought on cooking engine mounts. It had not considered that. Perhaps a simple heat shield is required.

You can also see the coolant pipe to the bottom of the rad. This is the original pipe which I have extended past the front tower. however I do not think you will be able to remove this pipe if the o seal to the block leaks in future. So I an planning to cut the pipe between the two pipes that are ly...

I think Phil use Calibra manifolds. I have got a pair lying about the garage if you want them as I changed my mind and had a go at making bespoke headers. they took me months to make. I am not sure of the gains but they look sexy and had fun making them. Here is a picture of the Calibra manifolds. T...

I agree with Phil you need more wrap on the water pump. just remount a pulley where the power steering pump was.

I think I spotted your car driving through the the Dobwalls roundabout a couple of weeks ago. You are more than welcome to drop in and see my Omega conversion if you are passing by this way again. I think you have got my mobile number. If not PM me and I am happy to advise you

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Here is a Rolls that was in the car park of a hotel I stayed in recently. What the hell it was doing there as the fuel in the tank was probably worth the same as a room for two nights.
