    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    The 1960ís face plate is a direct fit, but the resin board needs to be modified a bit.

    Cheers lads!

    Because I have no access to a pipe bead roller, I bought a couple of o ring fittings from Bunnings, cut them in half and soldered them to the copper heater hard lines to use as a bead.

    I welded up the jaws of a set of vice grips and ground to give the bead shape - was able to get some beads in 5/8"

    Yep good idea! I havenít had the time to do that though itís on my mind. I get generally a 30-40 minute block of time in which to do things.

    I was going to say "paint those shed walls" but then you probably sneak in there and "paint the walls" nightly.

    The wall where the loom is, I'll be making some shelves to suite these heavy duty tubs and lids. That will hide the wall just fine.

    The other walls will likely hang glass, doors, bonnets etc etc.

    Passenger exhaust manifold bird shit welded into submission. Drivers side to go which is a lot more complicated but Iím hoping to do that next week.

    Australia post has lost the registered express post delivery of my fucking injectors. Not happy but to be honest itís the first major fuckup Iíve had from Aus post.

    Also, it turns out you can tig weld copper. Who knew
