    So engine is just about ready to come out. It will sit on the engine stand for a while as I strip and clean everything. Internal will be standard with arp bolts for now and I will change cams out before it goes back in.

    As for the shell there’s no a lot more to strip. So the next job is to finish welding the cup racer mounts up for the cage and get the cage sat in place. Then I can start on odd jobs like the new dash, brackets for column, raised floor, etc etc. Also new welding table will arrive this week. A massive 2.25m x 1.25m so I can will have a decent size surface for all my
    Fab work.

    Also just put got this dash from Matt at select. Perfect timing I can get this wired up and fitted to the new dash I’m building. This is the last big purchase for a while now as I have loads of parts non fitted so time to make some headway.
