Thanks!

I'm pretty sick of panel work.

I'm getting abit side tracked, and went looking for a twin cam motor, and ended up buying 2x.
Plan is to get 1x complete running motor out of these, maybe even 2x! - Watch this space!

So i've been going back and forwards between panel beating, and the twin cams - which need a few bits here & there.
So I chopped up 2x crappy EFI manifolds, got some laser cut DCOE flanges, got the EFI manifold flanges machined, blasted, roll pinned them in position, got them welded, and hand finished them. only roughed out for now, but we have 2x pairs of DCOE manifolds!

Somehow one of the water manifolds was cracked, so that one has been welded up, and both manifolds drilled, tapped, etc to common NPT sizes and all holes fitted with Bungs to block off until required for temp gauge, heater pipe etc.

Its time to get the back end of the car re-painted, so i've got it back to drivable condition.
Fuel tank back in, battery in, and I had sent my instrument cluster away to be checked out, a factory tacho fitted, and everything tested and calibrated, plus LED light upgrade.
