Yeah I know Jonno :lol: With good reason, not a lot has been
happing on the Coupe.
I have been helping build another race car for my old man, so
I haven't touched the Coupe for months.
It has been at the panel shop getting the new rear beaver
panel & boot floor in though.

I am stating to assemble the Twin Cam bottom end this week :D
