  1. How you going to fill the chargecooler system if the filler is lower than the chargecooler ? I would fit a fill plug in the very top of the chargecooler and fill with a small funnel Also fit a fan in front of the cooler radiator that runs with the pump, this will cool it whilst stationary or moving slow and stop heat soak from the engine radiator
  2. I was as happy as you when it actually started, been there many times myself. We done on the work and making the videos.
  3. Rapid work and all the right bits 🤩
  4. What does it need, a bigger vent pipe in the tank ??

  6. Know what you mean, But the niggles will bug you again when you next drive it and you will wish you had sorted them 'out of season' Good luck with it 🤞

  8. Well , it got finished, MOT'd, rolling road at Emerald, Classic Ford then LeMans, then cormnwall All in the space of two weeks
  9. Its only metal....keep at it, I hope your not paying the restorer by the hour ?
  10. Been there ! would not want to go there again. I have a pair of rear arches i didnt use, or you could cut them off your old front wings to use on the back, assuming your getting newer front wings. Good luck
  11. Vista, you know i dont do simple Ash and his mate have done the bodywork, Ash painted it, wired and trimmed it etc. I have mucked in with the independent rear suspension though Its not N/A though , thats a Rotrex supercharger hung on the engine,
  12. The story so far. Start off with Patina'd 1956 Ford F100 truck. Removed three leaves from each leaf to lower it so it would fit in the garage new shocks while the old ones were off Unbolt and set aside all front panels Remove seized 390 big block and gearbox Fit replacement engine and box from 2003 Ford F150 lightning Make engine mounts and gearbox cross member. Refit rad support and Lightning radiator. Cast exhaust manifold off for modification of the outlet flange
