    the littlest thing blings up engine bay, bumper off for respray

    funny how the little thing brightens up an engine bay, bought new coolant pipe that runs across head aka part number 90423689 @£19

    thought start doing bits and bobs before PV if make it, bumper is off as respray next wk, gona buy new clips for silicone hoses, cant be doing with jubilee any more,lol

    before


    after

    Also need a heatshield

    bumper off for respray,time to check all those hoses and time to renew the inner lining on drive side and change them clips to mikalor ones

    was thinkin of gettin my rocker cover and x-over powder coated, just need to get the bitch runnin first.

    was also thinkin of gettin the heat sheild painted but recon the heat will just burn if off after a while but will need to talk to the guy who does my paint, see if he has any ideas for it.

    strange how i can remember who had what mods but cant remember peoples birthdays etc, one track mind i recon.
