      Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

        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

              So Jason is making good progress as time permits. Awesome to see the throttle butterfly doing its thing.
              Iíve made no progress at all and havenít been to the shed in weeks due to family illnesses (including food poisoning- thanks Chinese takeaway) and work.

              The storage and workshop space I have been renting has been up for sale and if it sells, the site will most likely be redeveloped. This means Iíll need to either find another unicorn workshop or pack the whole lot away into a Kennards or something and wait until we buy a bigger house with a garage. Iím hoping I can get the car done enough for rego before that happens.

                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.

                  Meet the welding lesson I like to refer to as “The Abomination”.
                  But it’ll do for rego purposes and it comfortably clears the steering box.

                    For boost? or just to get it running for now?

                      Just getting it running and registered for now.
                      Pretty sure the gearbox won’t cope with boost so I’ll have to delay the woosh for a while.

                            For anyone thinking of going the aftermarket ecu route with the twin plug v8 Mercedes engine, take note of the standard connector that the wallet plugs into (4th picture, lower right)
