Done and in.
The end of the bottom is touching the chassis so will need some thinking later.

Nice work on the exhaust wrap, is that a fan i can see running in the back ground, you will have no problem in spray painting in the climate you have not like the UK.

Thanks swifty. Fan was not running, only 22C on Saturday when those were taken. I now realise i have the handbrake cable underneath the propshaft and the header s need to come off again as the bottom just touches the chassis and will need a small bend to clear.

Not a lot of visible progress. inlet is cleaned and in place. However the set screws dont line up with the mount points on the headers. why are they there anyway? They seem only on the mk2.

Maybe not as the hours i just spent on these hs2s with 600 wetand dry would go to waste.


One jet broke in transit but vendor sent me another 2. However they are visibly different jet hole size. Lucky one is a match (86 thou) to the ones i already have, so it will b one red one black but same on the inside.

Thanks. Im working on deeper grease caps made from a peice of al pipe conector. I hope to build most little ducts and fairings from hammered aluminium rather than grp. But we'll see how that goes!

Keep up the good work 1iTim the heat shield look's just the job, are you going to round the corners off.

It's a big learning curve is metal bashing and practice makes perfect as they say, there's also plenty of vids on you tube.

Looking forward to see what else you make.

Swifty my wife said " is it finished?" When i proudly showed her. i have since cut out a bit to enable the dipstick (and folded edges over neatly) all other corners will wait for the body and bonet before trimming and edge finishing. It will be polished too. I'll post about the gease caps when they r done and work!
