    Youíre making great progress Mike. For various reasons Iíve not made any progress for a while, but your ĎChristmasí comment reminded me how good it felt during the 1st lockdown to get lots of deliveries of shiny new parts! With Spring coming Iím hopeful that Iíll be able to get going again but I suspect youíll be finished well before me at the rate youíre going. Very impressed with the scale of your engineering and looking forward to seeing the full chassis shots outside the garage

    I donít think thereís much chance of that Alistair ,Iím sure youíll get the urge to get going again as the better weather arrives, on the subject of goodies arriving I always seem to be sent the incorrect part as happened with the latest delivery and seem to spend hours on the phone sorting it out

    The tilt on the Busso engine designed to allow for a more sloping bonnet actually helps with bulkhead clearance

    Good work sir!

    Outside photos look great Mike! Thanks for sharing

    Thinking ahead, and whilst very easy to do retrospectively, a removable panel in the body beneath the rear window might improve accessibility to the engine?

    The perspective shots really help appreciate the work that has been done.

    What is the blue bar that goes across the rear wheels for?

    The tilt helps in some ways but it makes the rear bank quite tall when the inlet plenum is sitting on top not that you can see much out the rear window anyway, so I'll reverse the tubes to face forwards and turn the plenum upside down so throttle body is still over the g/box
