i have decided to do a little work on the hotrod ready for big bang (get some rwyb action in Twisted Evil ). its going to get a 1641 engine and a few choice drag racing mods.

the list of work is as follows

weld the fuel tank in higher up
lower the front some more
build and fit 1641 engine
repair accident damage to o/s/f
fit spoiler (not sure which one from my vast collection lol! )
fit smaller front tyres (the ones on there are actually taller than the rears Shocked )
get some dbs logos/signwrighting on there

took the engine out today (only took 5 mins Cool ) and started to tidy up the engine bay (remove the flaky paint and respray) then i noticed a few other bits that need attention and now there are only 4 panels that havent had abit of filler applied to then so now a bit of a respray is in order as well Rolling Eyes

the new engine is all together and ready to go in after the painting is done. Cool
