BigGrin Hi All

This is where my build diary starts, I had pack one delivered today and must say the parts are top quality.
Everything went together easily although the cylinder head bolts can be a bit of a fiddle to fit so watch out for the carpet gremlin here. The only other addition I did was to use silicone spray on the Tyre after cleaning it as per the instructions.

Regards

AndyCool

BigGrin Hi Ian

Thanks for looking in and your comments, she certainly is great quality just the weight of the airfoil is staggering and yh too many choices and only so much cash to go around.

BigGrin Hi All

Pack 2 arrived today first off it was more of those fiddly little bolts on the last two rocker covers and attaching them to the engine block, then it was adding the fog lights to the bumper. A nice touch was the decals on the fog light lens.
Next it was the assembly of the front tyre and hub, same as the last one and using silicon spray on the tyre as before.
Stage 6 was the spoiler and A/C bracket [ more boltsBlink ] but easy enough to add the spoiler to the bumper.
The last stage for this month is where various engine bay parts are starting to be made up. More soon.

Regards

AndyCool

Great work so far, despite the difficulty of the bolts the end result is worth it, it really adds a dimension of detail to the engine.
