Good to hear the Snail will at least have one leg to support it :)

Is it staying all that colour or do you have other plans for its dress code?

Also can see the gearbox has had some lightening :))

Hat D, I wont be bothering with paint and stuff yet, Its kinda at the bottom of the list, its been off the road too long, I wanna put it back together and get it running so I can dive it and enjoy the little beast, then down the track I will give it a lick of paint. As for lightening the bow, maybe a few hundred grams but it was unintentional, just did it to remove some of the bulky castings because they were snagging on the tunnel.

Well I got off my butt and did a little work on the beast. The cooler fitted nicely but I am struggeling to find a spot to fit the engine oil cooler, the pic with the cooler in it is where I am thinking of putting it as there is no room up front. I could put it on the radiator but then it will be getting hot air from the intercooler and radiator through it. I dont really want to rear mount it but I may have too.

Looking good mate, just make sure the bonnet catch doesn't hit your cooler.

cheers lads, the bonnet will latch down but the little hook has to be trimmed a touch, I do have a set of bonnet pins ready to go just incase.
