Mate, that thing looks bloody awesome. I love the old-style pastel paintjob, the wheels suit it perfectly, too.

However, the fuel system in the boot is just perfection. I love seeing that some real effort went into it, and it looks every part of it. Well done.

Would a s,all scoop below the rad help???

I want to try out the rad before i go down the road of putting a scope on.

However i did notice a truck today with a rad mounted exactly the same way but it was at the front. It had a rubber dam on three sides todirect the air in.

Looking good Dan, looking good.

Do you think that radiator will disperse enough heat? I would think that a fair amount of the heat would also be lost in the pipe to the radiator.

How do you fill it and how does air/bubbles get out?

Just a query, but how do you keep the radiator clear of mud and dirt?

Quality of finish looks excellent though.

speedhumps will be a bitch though.

Picked up my new clutch from MRC today. Its a Soft Button clutch that acts like normal clutch but can take a beating like a brass button clutch. It is made from two plates that act like a cushion hence stopping the straight out grab factor.

The pressure plate is rated at 800kg.

I can't wait to give it a go.

This is my soft button clutch. Note the twin plate set up which allows you drive the car normally through traffic but also thrash it when required. the pressure plate is rated to 830kg.
