Lol, no cant even bounce the front to make a quick pimp video, doh! the springs are sooo damn tough.

Got a friend building the new engine, well more like freshening up the old one and adding my new cam, rings, heads, intake, carb etc etc etc. It used to make 136 rwkw's and Ive been told that it was f**k!! when they opened it up the were laughing their asses off at some of the broken gear still in there, they cant believe that it still ran, so hopefully, with the new go fast bits and it being build properly it'll do better than 136 next time. Plus im taking the oportunity to move the battery, fit twin thermos, new balancer, new clutch and if time permits repaint the bay.

yeah i reckon you paint the engine bay, it makes it so much easier with the motor out.
