Got a bit done this wknd, made up most of my bushes, made a front stub axle, and started to look at where to mount my pedal boxes.

Also have started mounting my engine, all mounts are tacked in, except for two :)

It was such a prick of a job, lining it up to be spot on, I used threaded rod with a nut on the end to do all my adjustments, but plenty of hours later the engine is looking sweet haha!

Been a while since I've posted, haven't had as much time as I would like, but here is where I'm at,

Mounted my seat, sorry no pics yet,
Mocked up my fuel tank,
Cut out my tank, should be getting bent up tomorrow, and then I'm also hoping my welder turns up this week, then I will weld it up on the wknd,

Also I made my pedal box with bias bar,
I made it out of a laser cut pedal of from edge, it does look a bit funny, but it's solid and does the job so I'm happy

Also if anyone wants a good tip for centering brakes calipers and being able to mount them easy, is get a fitting to go into into it and then make an air hose go onto the fitting, then pump it up with air and it will clap on to the rotor and centre itself, then you can weld the mount on :)
