Actually, the EB was running a bit too warm for my liking. After I changed the radiator on the Monday before the cruise, the car has had a high temp.

Driving up the mountain made it worse, so I only did a couple of laps. I will probably be doing something regarding a new radiator before christmas, but for the moment it is just warmer than before, but not hot, if ya get my drift.

So, the end result was no pics from around the track.

Next time I hope there will be.

BenJ

There will not be any quad lights for my EB. I am not really a fan.

I will however, one day, get around to finishing my BA Light conversion.

I was going to ask about those lights of yours Benj, thought the photos you've been posting just didn't show them up or something. Anyways, all good.

Love the back end of box cars. It's a shame the staunch look when following a early 90's 'coon has been lost. However, I much prefer the front of the EF's, and the EF door handles / mirrors, etc.

Anychance you could talk yourself into fixing a EF Mont bonnet, bumper, and fenders to your pride and joy?

Just to satisfy my curiosity of course. Honestly - following an old box is way better than following a newer melted box. But once you overtake and look in the rearview mirror, it's the opposite.

I think the lowered EF looks bigger from the front, which it isn't really - could just be the blunter grill area or something.


Right, am off to sulk over my 5 speed and clutch difficulties.

If I spot a red EF front today I am photoshopping it onto your box.........


PS - Didn't you have a photo of a real GT bonnet you had?..

You mean this one?

All good things come to those that wait..... and wait.....

The bonnet mod is progressing slowly. There is no hurry and it will be completed all in good time.

Cheers
