dude, not a Fuq :mrgreen:

the Jet is slow progress seeing that the bodywork is finished, the gt is my priority now..but it's just bodywork and mechanical

Estimated time for both to be completed......December.

found a complete 2e engine for the GT, have to go fetch it later :) Will leave it 8v until the budget allows the 16v head...need to give Jody some competition :tongue:
