Been researching block's as I'm planning making a coffee table to go with my chrome piston ashtray.

Saw this on the bay while searching v8 blocks

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bentley-Turbo-R-V8-Engine-Block-Coffee-Table-TV-Stand-/200685217680?pt=UK_Home_Garden_LivingRoomFurniture_EH&hash=item2eb9c56790#ht_713wt_1185

Pretty cool, but 3.5k? no ta.

Think I've narrowed it down to a Bmw straight six, or Rover V8

I have a design for the V8 That's a bit different so I'd rather get one of them.

I've got an 18" Porsche Turbo Twist wheel i've been wanting to turn into a little coffee table for a while.
Never got round to it. Might make it my project for after the new year though...

I looked quick on there for "v8 block" can get jag ones for under 100, get an engineering place to fabricate a fancy face plate and give it a good clean

not really my thing though, I find this automotive stuff looks cheap even when it's not.

Shame, there was a massive aluminium v8 in the scrappy the other day, in the ally pile, probably would have cost a tenner.
I'll loook as I'm up there tomorrow.
