    I can't get back from it on the R/H side the way it's situated but I'll be round on the left shortly. plus I've got a car going to the paintshop in a week or so which will give me more room.

    You do great work, and have a really nice set of skills. I am hoping to get my dads 49 F-1. It has been sitting in his shed for 35 years un molested, flat head with a 3x2 intake.
