    This week I've been playing around with making a rear strut brace out of carbon fibre with titanium ends and re designed the mounts so I can still fit the plastic trim pieces,

    I happy with how it turned out and its much lighter than the ally one I had fitted before , will do the front one next,

    What a superb idea. I've always thought it a shame you can use these.

    Fantastic work, Atomman - a low run of these would go like hot cakes!

    :cheers: Hopefully have it all ready to go in for spraying by the end of January. Still can’t decide on a colour :conf2:

    Another delivery from Japan (this one creeped in with no duty charged. A win!).

    A Harada intake (resold by Kameari) for 40-45 size carbs/ITBs. Very comprehensive kit and super quality. Has built-in return spring, really chunky rod, and the hardware for running either via stock bulkhead linkage rods or cable throttle.

    This is actually for my red FairladyZ, but I’m going to get another for Dixie’s ITB stroker engine, running cable throttle on both. Originally the plan for Dixie was that I would use a Mangoletsi intake, but tbh, these are excellent quality, tried and tested pieces, and I can get two of them for the price of the full fat Mangoletsi with the cable setup and have change left over.

    On another note, the JDM N42 head porting continues in the evenings after the kids are in bed. All ports now opened to size at the head face. Now need to match the internal sizes and finishes to the first two finished ports.
