Got a couple hours in on the bug this morning, so flipped the pan round and tidied the underneath then with wire wheel on the grinder i ran it over both sides of the pan just to clean it all up after having it blasted and sat for a couple months....

Well theres something to think about............

Ummmm

No not really dude just want the pan finished and rolling ready to sell..
Need the money to strip and repaint the T4 properly with some decent paint and stuff.... Need it sorted cos i'll probably be giving the unit up ASAP..
But may have found away to fund the T4 without selling the bug, if so i'll chuck her in the garage untill i can finish her.. Wink Wink
