Hi Alan, ha ha ha yeah I think even Pixar would of finished by now!! - I am aiming to have the buggy running ready for the last of my local car shows which is September, so the buggy is full stripped and is being collected today for powder coating and whilst its away (for approx 1 week) I have to service the engine clean it and paint and fir the new clutch - so no pressure :)


Cheers Danny - wait till you see it fully powder coated :)

Ive also decided to paint the alloy treadplate that im using for the floor - I'm going to try that Raptor textured black two pack paint and see if that works ok, its supposed to be pretty good stuff

Anyway Ill post some more pics soon

Rich

the rear of my landy is in raptor.. I am wearing it away now though....

How long has it lasted Danny and did you acid etch the aluminium prior to applying the raptor?
I t was on when I bought it....

its lasting ok... but I have 3500 block pavers I moved and generally abused it for the last year :D

Ha ha ha in that case it must be pretty tough stuff then - i think it should do fine on the floor pan!!

Been stripping the engine down to service and paint it, whilst the chassis is away and I have space - discovered the previous owner had snapped an exhaust stud in the block and put the broken bit back in on 2-3 threads - bloody cowboys!:mad:

So looks like I need some new exhaust manifold studs now, probably not a bad thing as when one goes the rest will :(

Will post some more pics soon, expecting the chassis back early next week - very exciting!!!

Hi Alan, good thing about ebay is the returns policy is good, set up for buyers now, send them back and get your money back if you are not happy.

I bet Danny has some Freestyle front lights in his collection, an easy option to convert to LED with the 5.75" backs and the front parts that you need. 🙂

Also I remember Danny trying to once sell me his stainless exhaust which if he still has may be good for Lee's project minus the back box that he still is using.
