Lovely!

Until the monkey behind the wheel gets a bit overcompetitive  ;D

yep - did over-ride the Jacobs on one run and singed a piston - won the race though !

Need to swap to the other half fairing. It has enough room to "hide" the NOS bottle. It's being posted tomorrow [ 2nd May ] with a "sympathetic" invoice !! The same guy has also got me a couple of 9/16 NPT weld bungs and has taken delivery of a spare exh. cam [ modified going on the inlet ].

Fingers crossed  ;D....... hoping my pal can bring this back in his hand luggage ! Only a 50bhp shot, but that's a starter for 10. ;)

That takes me back a long way to Bumper Gas Coin as he was known.  What was it ?  University Challenge or something similar and Bamber Gascoigne was the question master.  Is that still on or did it die a few decades ago?

The show is still going, but Bamber Gascoine is dead.  He was stabbed to death by the angry hooker who's gear he had stolen.

I was born a rocker.  I'll die a rocker.  And I'm proud of it.

The NOS kit is on it's way, should be here next week. I started fettling the Manx tank cover - hole is now cut for the screw in neck and I've finalised the re-shaping at the front where I had to chop a bit out to lower the "tank" over the frame - just aesthetics. Still trying to decide if I should fit a dummy hold down strap.

Finally, I made up a dummy head steady just as a POC. yep, that'll work. There will be a second stay diagonally opposite on the other side of the head. I've got some stainless rod and new rod ends round at Brian's, but at least I have the patterns now.

Bit more work fettling the tank this week and maybe shoot it in primer. Still have to decide on the upholstery for the 7R seat ...... foam pad or use my Jag [ Connolly ] perforated hide !

First knock down on the Manx "tank". Not a bad mould at all. Just a few fat finger remedial spots [ grinder on front ] to sort and it's ready to shoot in primer.

Went online to get a Manx style hold down strap ...... £120 ????? Are you having a fuckin laugh you retailers ?

So - the Hot Rodder solution. 1 metre perforated 20mm wide stainless engineer's strip [ £9.00 ], 1 metre 30mm rubber strip £2.95. I've already got over-centre fasteners - but if I had to buy them ..... £15. Maybe I should go into business making the fuckers.

Also had a play with the new Metal flake I got last year. And YES it will suspend in celly [ or any other medium ] and works a treat. I used satin lacquer. Still experimenting with mix ratios etc, but 100 gms flake to 1 litre clear lacquer seems to be fine. 1.75 nozzle on gun and 2 bar spray pressure.

Nice fish!

Interested to see how you attach the clamps to the perforated strip, itís a good plan.

garden pond aerator / spout !

THE RUBBER STRIP HAS ARRIVED - JUST WAITING FOR THE STAINLESS STRIP. I'll post up as and when.

"Tank" prepped - just waiting for the rain to come and work it's magic on the surface and next week into primer / surfacer. 8) Alex jb - looks like you haVE THE SAME PROBLEM AS ME - THE FILLER CAP IS IN THE MIDDLE !! I have a cunning plan to split it. Again - I'll post up the solution.

No, not doing yellow zinc chromate base coat - I've found it doesn't like cellulose on top of it ! ;)

I can't finish prepping the seat and belly pan as I can only get at one side ! I'll do as much of the actual block sanding / keying as I can - but I'll have to leave the shaping / fettling until I can get at both sides. The mesh for the front of the belly pan will be here next week, so that can be finalised.

Only minor blemishes to correct - and 2 of the biggest my fat finger fault with the grinder !
