Painted it all up today

Engine is pretty much ready now.

Gotta wait for the Lexmaul inlet and 4-2-1 manifold before it goes in. Also gonna paint the rocker and get new cover so i can spray that.

Ive also been learning to weld and without trying to sound big headed im getting bloody good!

So once the old C16SE 8v is out i can get some plates and get them all welded in as well as a cavalier internal shifter and some seat mounts made up

Loads to do
