an update on what ive been doing this week and that is starting to remove my engine ready for my new 1300gt beast Razz

all that needs doing before hoisting it out is removing my gearlinkage and front left drive shaft
also got a sneak peak pic of my new alloys aswell







also just out of sheer randomness and slight boredem felt like taking a pic of my beast against an italion stallion ferrari 355 berlinetta



more pics will be posted in the next 2weeks on the engine update
