    Paints on ,unfortunately the drawback of spraying in a dusty old workshop resulted in the last 3 day flatting back and polishing,pretty much there now though so hopefully start getting it back together now :-

    Dave, can’t you get an alloy rad instead of that plastic ended thing you’ve got?

    Already priced up,but I felt it was a lot of money to improve on what I have,Joe (Curtis) is making me a catch tank that will fit on this end of the rad + I have my stainless header tank still to fit and the rad cover,once pipes are on you aint going to see much that aint shiny .

    I love Joe’s work. I’ve got one of his cam belt covers and throttle cable bracket. I’ve also got a rad core from him to build my own rad.

    Yes for sure , it was inspiration from his caddy build that got me hooked,then he never finished it !
    He's doing me a catch tank for the caddy and another to go on his original rad to go in the series 1,he certainly knows how to turn out some fine craftsmanship,,top boy

    Yep, tad better. I think a highly polished aluminium rad would look even better

    So yesterday was a case of lifting the caddy as high as possible and wheeling the engine underneath then lowering as far as I could,thats when I realised I wasn't going to get any further without an engine hoist managed to borrow one of the local marine engineers and after a lot of fiddling its all in place,just a matter of connecting it all up,big gap where the servo was ?

    Hopefully move it on a bit more when we get in from sea tomorrow !

    Jesus Dave - that looks so good. Well done mate I am totally envious of the effort you have put into this. Top quality work.
    Now how about some pictures of fishes??
