Its only the end because there is nothing left to take off !! Now we have to put it back together !

|Checking radiator fan clearances|
We have had the engine block and gearbox back in the car for a few days so that we could check clearances between the radiator and the fan, before we send the radiator back to Greg at Red Devil for finishing off. The fan sits very high, so we are going to raise the radiator up as high as we can.

I then looked closely at the new Corbeau seats. When trying to fit them in the car, we seemed to be sitting very high in them. Corbeau have assured us that the seat bases will compress, but I decided to have a closer look. The seat base just flips forward, and it appears to be just a large block of foam .

It was then back to my garage and the POR15. I really want to make sure that once we have the inside of the car all welded up and painted in the next week or so, all the parts are refurbished, painted, greased etc and ready to fit as quickly as possible. But it is nice to know that now everything is off the car, the next step is to start putting it back together again - At last !!
