    I have been grabbing the odd hour or two at the shop on my way home from work every few days. The Zoomies are almost ready now. Total cheap home build with me saving a lot of money doing it myself this time around. The stainless steel zoomies on my old Rover V8 ended up costing £600. This time I'm making my own Zoomies in mild steel. So far its only cost £120 all in. I cant wait to hear the engine run with the shorty pipes fitted..

    More weeks have passed and more has been done
    I really enjoyed making the Zoomies. It took 7 hours to make the first set. Then once I had learnt by mistakes, the other side took 2 hours !!
    Modified prop shaft now fitted.
    Exhaust finished (apart from no Lambda bungs yet) and Zoomie wrapped in heat tape.
    Today I spent 2 hours making sure that pedal to the metal = 8 fully open flaps.
    I have fitted a external battery kill switch now. We bought a cheap Ebay hydraulic crimping tool to make off the battery cables and its great.
    Not sure if I mentioned that I have removed the alternator and will run on batteries only now?
    I fitted the Lexan rear screen. I fitted the lexan to the drivers door.
    Fuel system in the back is all done and I now have an open ended AN10 line in the engine bay ready to adapt to twin 3/8" card lines.
    I know AN10 seems too big. But it will eventually feed a 500hp nitrous system up the front end as well when I'm ready
    The list of small jobs left to do is now way bigger than the original engine swap list. !!
    So far so good and I'm happy with progress right now. But I have to take a break as i'm off to SF on Friday to see family for a couple of days, then off to Vegas for 5 days and then back to SF for a couple of days before we fly home. Then another 2 weekends of bliss in the workshop on the car while I figure out how to fit the wheelie bars ?
    Regards to all. Pel

    For some reason I cant post a picture from my laptop.
