I can only see one problem. You seem to have accidently dropped a bike engine in
Sorry, looks great. I wish i was anywhere near that stage





How long can i resist the temptation to drop a V8 in?

Looks great, especially under the bonnet with the hoses. How have you kept the wiring so non existent?

hahaha, yea i just noticed that today

infact my missus friends 6 year old kid pointed it out to me

Adam

all the wiring is routed through the tunnel to the dash and all the busa ecu/loom etc along with the battery is in the passanger footwell


it only started looking like a car a few days ago when i fitted the body work and wheels, up until then it was just a frame with an engine in it with lots of confusing wires

all the best to everyone in there build and cheers for the comments

Very nice - Like the colour.

PS a tip for you.

Black marker pen arround the inside edge of the suspension holes.

The nose in black MMMmmmmm a tad menacing.

looks superb - great work in 30 days
one question - does yours have a cable or hydraulic clutch? if cable - do you have a very very small biting point.
my r1 does and i can be fun and embarrasing when it stalls

Looks very .

40 days to get that far, If it's anything like my build is going at the moment it will take another 40 days with the finishing touches.

Get the SVA paperwork filled out and sent off
