  3. I just love seeing what interesting, quirky thing you´re going to come up with next.
     
  4. That old Bosch heater sure looks cool with the new face bevel around the outer edge. Sure will blow out some heat now seeing the element is fully enclosed. Heres what they look like standard. One fan behind the two flaps and under the rear lid is a second fan.

    Fun that you found those pics Gaz, maybe it good that I closed the side of the heater or else the right foot might get very hot :)

    Did a bracket for it today.

  9. Wish I had easy access to a water-jet table, I would save hundreds in cut off wheels.

    Awesome work

    Thank you BrerHair, i wish you posted more in your build tread. It is inspiring and fun to read .
     
  13. If you want to get rid of it, I'd love one for the NOS Adler grille I had shipped over from Gemany!

    Spend the hole day aligning the hood with the help of my friend Tomas who also is the one that doing the paintjob for the 32.
    We also started with some nosejob as the top of the grille shell needs to be raised to align with the hood.
