He cleaned up the engine bay a lot! Tidyed up wires, painted bulkhead! Polished and laquered inlet and front of engine! Cleaned and painted radiator, it looks 110% better :)
Can't wait till it's finished! He re did all brake and clutch pipes and he's a bit weird he made it like a chemistry set! Spent 25 minutes lining them up proper! He's a legend
