I wanna do the drag strip myself but I don't know if the cars ready!
I don't actually know how it works lad booking wise, maybe DoSvtec can shed the light here lol

Would love to do it myself to see what times I get before I start on the engine. Must look into it :) hope to see your car up there lad :nice:

Okay got the rest of my photos uploaded :nice: After clean my engine I painted it with heat resident silver paint :) it turned out great and was more than happy with the finish. The only thing I never got painted was the rocket cover but I have the paint there just have to find the time to get it done now :lol:

After the engine was painted silver I got some black paint to touch up all the black on it but sorry lads don't have any pictures of this :(. But anyway let's get back to the car :D. As it stood at that time the engine was out and all the small stuff was painted with no problems :) the very first thing I did was stone chip all the back and arces and all under the car as I wanted it to be weather proof :D This was before

When I got that done and out of the way I started to sand down and get the engine bay ready

. If any of you are wondering why I never took out my loom it was because I didn't want to upset anything inside the car :) The back of the engine bay didn't need painted it just needed to be cleaned and will be done when the car is out and on the road again :D
