I'd thought of doing that as well, but my brakes are fine with a good push, plus I've really got no space inside to fit.

I decided i have had enough of the constant fuel stops with my meagre 6 gallon petrol tank,and gone for a 12 gallon,only just fitted,thought the extra weight of the fuel might give me bit more traction :lol: :lol:

Nice Aluminium Box you've got there Dunk.!

12 Gallon Tank eh, Should give you at least a 240 mile range. Make sure it's half full when next at the Pod.

After fitting my new petrol tank my fuel gauge wouldnt read correctly at all,I found this handy device from Car Builder Solutions which allows you to use any fuel sender with any fuel gauge.Once fitted you program both sender and gauge to work perfectly,nice and easy to set up,jobs a good un :D :D

Went to France this weekend for the D Day 75th celebrations,went over on my moutain bike and rode across France upto Utah beech,then rode down seafront through Omaha Gold Juno and Sword.Was an amazingly weekend,hundreds of military vehicles everywhere,there was a convoy of about 100 Willy,s Jeeps cruzing up and down seafront.Flybys by Dakotas Spitfires Hurricanes and P51 Mustangs.The floating concrete docks are huge,way bigger than I imagined,it was quite surreal to see them on beeches,it felt a bit like i was on the set of Planet of the Apes or some Sci Fi film.Seeing the German Concrete gunning bunkers really brings home the sacrifice and sheer bravery of all the soldiers,all these guys are the REAL HEROES!
Who gave everything for all our futures.I would recommend for anyone to go over and visit,here are a few pictures.

Having also visited the Beaches and cementries it's truly amazing and really brings home the sacrifice they made in order we can enjoy the lives we lead.

Might have seen you! I did Flanders, The Somme and just got the Pegasus Bridge 75th in before heading back. Visited Sword on the eve of the anniversary.

Been busy this week,got the moggy mot done,then I thought i would try to improve heating system as always seems a bit on the hot side.So i ordered a new group 4 escort mk 2 radiator with large header tank,and has a core fitted specifically for either Cosworth turbo motor or millington(alloy block version of cosworth)race engine.I have also built a air cowl out of 3mm abs plastic to direct the air through radiator and cant escape around sides top or bottom.Have to give her a test run and see how it all funtions
