Cooling. I had a buddy with one. He constantly overheated.

I love the way you tapered that line off. It really worked out well.

Are you working on this? You had such a great start, and now it's just pining for the road.

Finally got back onto it and re-did the rear fenders. It actually came out looking better.



Sitting on it's own feet today. Don't mind the panel gaps. The fenders are just zip-tied on as they need to come off for more wiring. I installed all new door and truck seals, need to do the window wiper seals but need to get some trim adhesive.



Got the hood on. Pleased to see the turbo and intercooler charge pipes all cleared the hinged rod that connects the front tilt hood.





Just need to tidy up some wiring and the lights and it will be driveable. It's close.

After I drive it I need to install the Megasquirt, run on base tune, install bigger injectors and scale fuel and then I can hook up the wastegate and start tuning.

And that's the complicated part...

Nice to see it moving again
