Fordson van update

Hi buddy,

I have seen your threads on your van and must say that I am VERY impressed with your skills. Your vans bespoke chassis is nice. Im hoping my van will be under 850 kgs in road trim and circa 365 bhp so should be a little rocket! Thanks buddy....

I like the muff,s nice job,, I have a zoomie plate,, its so you can open the zoomies or shut it to exit through mufflers,, made by miller motorsports, in Cal.
are your rear doors aluminum? look to be steel,, Mine had a perfect set of Aluminum doors , but I really didn't like the looks, so I intended to make my own,, but insted , like a fool I sold them, and ended up having to buy glass ones,, the only fiberglass on the car,, but they are a very nice pair,, made by Pro Laminates over in your part of the world,, keep up the nice work,, youre making great progress,, wish I could say the same about mine,, got way too many irons in the fire,,

Sounds good.

Those are your home made mufflers, right?

Hi,yes home made glass packs,the sound quality is poor and the engine was out of tune but in real life they are very nice sound,deep growl and they show the sound of the edelbrock cam off
