Hi Keith.

Gaz hasn't got an Internet connection yet but...

AFAIK he's been doing a mod or two on Photoshop and a few bits & bobs have appeared in my garage.

At least some kind chap made a handy stand for the engine.

paint pics

well i've been painting this week, I used plastic coat zink primer and plastic coat metal protect top coat. I was pleased with the way it went on, and it has a really good drying time (about 40 mins)

Reconmended!

I got hold of some ZX9R carbs and have sent them off to Bogg Bros to have the manifold sorted, I have know idea when i will get them back, If they look as good as the pics on their website i will be well happy.

I started grovelling to farter, and with a bit of luck there might be the beginings of an exhaust manifold soon.

I will stick some pics of the revised design on here in the week.

I think I'd like to keep the rear 'quarterlight' behind the door, as visibility is difficult in that direction on my open locost - blocking it off would be a nightmare on slip-roads!

I appreciate that it would be a pig to produce, though.

revised design

thanks chaps.

Sorry forgot to put the mirror on,

well spotted everyone,

the front over hang is one of the few part that i havent touched, it is funny how when you change different parts other parts seem more apparant or seem to change .

any chance of a few pics of those wheels

Shiny bits arrived

Hi All.

Gaz has had "the call of the curry" so I'm posting this on his behalf.

The inlet manifold & carbs came back from Bog Bros yesterday so we've hung them on the Zetec
and thought you might like a pic or two.

We are well impressed.

Looking really good Gary.

One observation - have you allowed enough clearance for the headlights when the steering is on full lock & bump? I mention that because I had the same clearance 'challenge' when I designed my front section, which required a little rethink quite late in the buck production.
I am not sure which lights you are planning to use but it might be a good idea to get the tape measure out
