Popped up to Roy's last week for another fitting in my fuel car "don't tell the wife" we are back on with car full throttle now hoping to have it on its wheels and mocked up for my birthday mid August feels very comfortable real happy with the car, with everything else I have going on it's progressing nicely and looks amazing so many little touches and extra thought roy has put into it will keep updates coming,
New dimension I was selling now keeping its rolling and has box and motor mounted in it little more mock up then paint time

Hi all really starting to take shape now went up to Roy's yesterday for final fitting for levers and fire bottles etc etc and to say I'm happy with the car is a understatement, progress is moving along good and around a couple of weeks away from removing it from the jig and finally see it on the floor and it's wheels, :D these are pictures of my fuel car "don't tell the wife" will get some pics of new dimension over next couple of weeks and stick them up thanks for looking
