:lol:  Pesky bugs. What else is going cream on the outside apart from the wheels?
I'm sure it'll still look good.

The boost pipe run is nice and tidy.

Unfortunately with the position of the outlet on my intercooler my only option is to head between the alternator and radiator, otherwise i might of pinched your idea.  :twisted:

It's looking good.  8)

only the wheels and bonnet bra on the outside, then cream under bonnet.
kinda all goes with the interior lol.

my bro has been over this eve and we've really cracked on with it. if it wasnt for him i'd of prob given up ages ago lol.

tomorrow night it will be back on its wheels, and hopefully have some oil/coolant in it

That engine bay is superb. Love the idea of the hidden header tank and brake fluid tank.

Keep up the good work
