Matts attention to detail is incredible, it's easy to see why he has a reputation of being one of the best in the business, is OCD is almost as bad as mine lol.. Your build looks awesome Tom, when do you get to collect it?

You are not wrong about Matt Ade. He is obsessed with the detail! Picked up my car this afternoon Very Happy
Sadly I won’t be at vmax Saturday. I need to run the engine in and get the meth tune done etc. Shame the next one is not until September!

Yeah and there doesn't seem to be anything else filling the gap either, if i could find a suitable and willing airfield i would organise one...

The main thing is you'll be out enjoying the car again though, take it easy, get it run in well Very Happy

Was chatting with Matt yesterday. Turns out he has made a few extra meth tanks as they have proved quite popular. Apparently he can adapt the design fairly easily to suit different pumps. He is fitting one now where the customer has provided a snow performance kit. He's also looking at the option of building them out of Aluminium so they can be anodised any colour.

A couple of you have already PM'd me asking about them so if you want a piece of art in your Frunk give Fearnsport a call.

If I can borrow your shiny beast? Yeah I thought not Jin!

You need to get PPF on your car mate or you'll be too scared to drive it.

The kids were playing in the car last night...at first I said "Don't touch this, don't stand on that..." but then I thought "It's only a bl00dy car!!!"

I will just buy a new part if they break something, or paint it again if they scratch it, there are a lot more things in life to be worried about and if your car is the only worry that you have then you are a very privileged person in my eyes... Judge

Back on topic...

It wasn't a no from Tom was it Dont know

I will get my helmet Grin

I should hopefully be picking up my car later today from Fearnsport after having a custom Fearnsport built intake and methanol kit. The pipework and methanol tank has been designed by Matt himself and in true Fearnsport style is an absolute work of art!















Where is the air box, are you running fender well intakes?
