There is a meeting this weekend near Nottm. I head down your way often enough, return the compliment. If you turn up in a Porsche, I will. It would be great to see one of your cars.

Hi Ian,
Spent the afternoon labelling up the wiring loom and taking the fuel injection off ready for dropping the engine and box tomorrow if all goes according to plan...
Battery was flat in my camera, so no photos until tomozle.
All I can say is Project Blue Book is back on, big styleee Grin

To be honest it's in better nick than my back at the mo Grin
I recon there will be very little welding judging by what I've seen today Thumb

Thank you, I appreciate you taking the time to read through this weighty tome. 'Project Blue Book' has now taken over my entire spare brain capacity, and all the things I didn't dare do on 'The Red Baron' I find myself planning for this new one Question

Hi Guys,
So, by way of a bit of an update.....
I have finally gotten around to fitting heat to The Baron. The heater boxes have been back from the laser cutters for a while, but other things have somehow gotten in the way. So here are a few photo's to prove progress.....


So it's all got to fit around this bunch of bananas!






So managed to get a nice tight fit up and out of the way. The only thing to fit is the cross over pipe, which looks like it's going to foul the back box.
I think I need to cut and shape a slot out of the front and back to get it to squeeze in. I think it will be worth it though as the weather is on the change.
Laters taters Thumb

Well by way of a running report....
The front oil rad has been leaking! I actually took it out and had it pressure tested which came back fine.However after the track day at Oulton Park there was a nice puddle under the car of Mobil's finest Embarassed




So out it all had to come again....
[URL=http://s50.photobucket.com/user/Chiefyb2/media/P1020674_zpsf2nebwl0.jpg.html]
[/URL]

So here's the culprit!

Band new spangly one from Germany for the delivered price of £224.00 not like the Porsche taxed item at £573.60 Surprised

So an afternoons work and a dry garage floor.
Nothing more to report....Chief......Over and out bye

Ha, haar, I see what you did there our Paul Grin

Paul, tell me, what oil are you running in Betty?
I have just used up the last of my heavy weight Mobil and as I have no track days planned, need to be using something thinner....
Such debate about oil, and there's me starting another one Confused
