Iíve ordered a few bits from Torques in the past, Iíve ordered the parts from a few different sellers to get the best value for plain black fittings.
Have most of the parts here now, I also have the vice jaws just waiting for my alloy spanner, I could use a normal spanner and some tape but I donít want to take the risk of marking the black finish, itíll stand out like a dogs lipstick!

Double checking clearances because Iíve changed the alternator mount and is well, it sits pretty much where it previously.

I cut them off when I changed to the flip up front and Iíve put them back because Iím going back to a steel front, they will sit through the tear drop mount holes on the front panel, theyíll be cut back when I mock up the metal panels.

Drill holes in them and paint them black so they look like proper machine guns.

Plodding away at this in between dad duties.
Iíve decided that purely for looks Iím going to remove the 12Ē Kenlowe from the from the front of the radiator and Iíve ordered a 9Ē Revotec pull type fan instead, the Kenlowe working very well at keeping me cool when stood still, I hope the smaller Revotec will work ok. Going to hold on to the Kenlowe until I know for sure.
Re-routing the plumbing as Iíve fitted a stainless rear coolant pipe and I donít want to cut it down like my old pipe was for easier plumbing, think Iíve got it worked out, was hoping to use a flexible coolant hose but apparently they actually donít flex that well!
Iíll get some pics on the next update.

Got the last bits I needed to finish up the engine coolant plumbing and hooked up the wiring loom.
I need to sort out the heater plumbing inside and fit the twin speed heater and make up my new fuel lines, then I can put some fluids in it and fire it up!
Iíve re-fitted my old cream injectors just to get it running, it wouldnít run previously on my bigger injectors so Iíll fit those when it goes for mapping.
