Cheers Aaron, took 2 days to recover! :lol:

Thanks Rob, I'll still be sticking around here. I love this place.

Antonio/Spyder, pay the flight/accommodation and you've got a deal! You could go 50/50 on the flights. LOL

Very nice Marty! Good job on the engine detail. Some poeple half ass some of that, but you did a great job! Props!

Thanks Paul. Only took around 20 mins to do the engine to be honest. Done so many I'm pretty efficient at them. :lol:

Looks awesome as usual! Looks like it started raining on you as you were taking pics...I HATE it when that happens!

Thanks Tony. :thumbsup:

Indeed it did start to rain when I began taking the photos Tony...

It now is fitted with mats, which look a lot better than the two sheets of paper shown in those pics!
