Sorry, no 240v... it is fully insulated though, so if we get enough folk in there no need for heater...
How many plonkers does it take to finish a sport chassis??

Martin, some would argue that you have enough hot air coming out of your head that you could heat a garage.........

Have you had any progress on those pistons you are getting copied?

Yes, only option is billet. Which is a bit more $$ but not that bad.
With the strut purchase the pistons will have to wait a bit.

I did, those are 82.5 and will work for another engine. Mahle does not have a forging that can support the 79.5 bore that I need for the alloy block and I refuse to resleeve it, to scared to ruin it.

Last piece of the puzzle, at least from parts gathering...
I was unable to find a original so got the next best thing... a great copy, down to all the mounting tabs and hose locations, including by-pass valve and ISV.

Feast your eyes.
Not sure the family will appreciate this under the tree this year.

Hopefully this weekend the project gets back on track.
Shell is going to a body shop for final welding and fabrication!
Can't wait. It has been too long.
