Will do mate...  I'm getting my back quarters made as we speak... the guy around the corner has a month waiting list....so I have gone to another guy...  I'll find out from that guy for you mate  :wink:

I'll go to the local one for bigger bits I cant be assed to post...and it will save any damage in the hands of parcel force...  :D

When the head was off i did wire brush the exhaust manifold the best i could and painted with silver hammerite but like you say it just flaked off.


I dont think Hammerite would last long,   you need to drop into Halfords... look for the manifold spray!  Its an alloy finish and wont flake off  :wink:

  Fitted a different rear boot badge.. (that was the highlight of the week!  :lol: )  Picking up the chrome brake carriers next week if they are ready .. then I can get the new disks on. Testing some bigger carb jets next week and changing the set up with the front intercooler/CC combo..  fitting the new mesh Induction kit... just ordered a few connector hoses and another alloy pipe...lol.  You cant not have a bit of bling in there somewhere lol  :wink:
