Built this 380 BHP baby two years back for my Cossie Sapphire ! ! Had all intentions of shoe horning it into a mk1 Escort one day but never got around to it !! Bloody went like shit off a shovel in the sierra though!

Motor bike eater !!!

Nice stuff Del.

Not too keen on the grass (by the boat). Looks like it needs a mow.

Ha Ha ha..

Thats my mums back garden bless her !! Didnt have my garage at the time !! Was a perfectly nice lawn until that boat got stripped, sanded, cut about and painted !! Yes, painted out in the open and yet not too many bugs and tree sap in the paint !

Really dont get the time to do much like this any more, started my own building business 3 years ago and just saps all my days and some eves !!

Want to try and get round to building a Caterham though when I get the chance !! A nice 350BHP cossie lump in that should be plenty good fun !
