Cheers thanks.

The raiders running, drives spot on (even better than the white one) just need to do the valve clearances then get it MOT'd.

Top work there Dean. What's the plan for the Raider, alternate daily GTT's  :mrgreen:

What did you paint the exhaust manifold with? I done mine with silver VHT paint when I rebuilt the engine and it all burned off in about an hour  :(

The Raiders now sold (went today, could of done with the engine lol) as I didnt have the time to complete, a newbie on here has it so should be on the road soon.

I used a VHT paint too, its in a black can. Ill have a look tomorrow at the make. Ive used other stuff in the past that isnt as good.

Engine and bay will be repainted again after rebuild

I just saw the post about it being picked up  :lol:

I used Halfords own stuff. It's been good on everything else. If you could let me know the stuff you used that'd be great  8)

While the engines out AGAIN im going to paint a few bits and do inside the bay again.

Turbo painted, needs a bit of polishing to remove excess paint.



Had a look at the VHT paint and its Carplan stuff.

Thanks, Need to paint the bumpers and arches. I want to fill around the numberplate to make it look smoother. Thinking of either polishing the wheels or doing them graphite grey.

Enginewise, its being rebuilt at the mo. Do a road trip to run it in  :P (Any excuse) then hopefully it should be at the power im after.

Had a few issues sorting pistons, but hopefully sorted now. Got a set of low comp ones coming tomorrow if all goes well, then its a drive down to Mark to drop them off.

Unless Mark has taken any pics ;-) then by the time I get it back it will be complete.

Decided to up grade the calipers, got a few spacers to make, aprt from that they fit perfect.




Need to do a bit of painting to tidy the arches and suspension
