09-25-2009 10:30 PM New Manifold & carbs
Went to Adelaide Australia on business had ½ a day spare so went for a drive and found this Outlawspeed shop. Looked around for ½ an hour after an Edelbrock performer manifold twin 500cf carburettor set couldn't find it so talked to Ben Twomey. He told me he could get one over from the states in a few days. As these are priced in New Zealand at $4000.00nz plus I expected $3500.00 at least. When Ben came back with $1818.00au I nearly fell over. Called the real boss for her permission as you do. Hi tailed it back in and purchased it before he realised it was a mistake. As I was leaving in 3 day's these boys organised everything importing it shipped it to my hotel. If you are in New Zealand and don't want to get ripped off with someone wanting his first 50 footer on every sale go to this web site http://www.outlawspeed.com.au/ ask for Ben and get a price he will export it to NZ also. 10 points for a top team in Adelaide.

Back tray removed from the body. This is going to need a bit of cleaning and a base added to stop water and road dirt from covering the tank. Next weeks job.

I then removed the tray cleaned it up and cut off all the excess strips.
The back door was bowed out so using box section and a few clamps pulled it back in and fiber-glassed it to the angle also. Next is to manufacture the tank supports in the bottom.
