boxer racer project


just like rolf harris say's, 'can you guess what it is yet?' after too much time scraping nitromor's, wet and drying, scraping, scotchbriting, more nitromor's and more scraping the engine is looking something like, due to a 'small' misunderstanding on my requirements, the starter motor cover, timing chest and timing chest cover didn't get blasted and powdercoated, deep joy, with the engine re-assembled the only option was the time consuming, labourious hand-fettling one, after almost a week of work i finally got the motor masked up and ready for a coat of smoothrite, good clean up in the shed tomorrow night and i'll be choking on paint fumes rather than having my fingerprints removed by the nitromor's........
