Go Andrew! I really like the black powder coat on the intake pipes, and heat shield. Nice touch. BTW I'm not a fan of the bling thing myself. So how's that body work coming? :wink:

I agree- nice work!

Are you going to line the heat shield with a high heat fiberglass (or asbestos) lining? It does look good, though.

Looking forward to seeing the finished package Andrew.

OK it’s been a year since an update on the car ??? WOW life gets in the way sometimes!! Been a bit crazy with Home renovations to please my wife and "me to" and the as well the Triumph GT6 Race car had a lot of upgrades that took me away form the 510.
All said and done and I'm back onto the 510 Project.
She is ready for the final prime and block sand before paint hope to have the shine on it before mid May. Then its assembly lots of assembly :)
I will get back onto Pictures and updates before Month End.

Andrew,
I'll be driving by on Monday as I am picking up some parts in Montreal. Looking forward to seeing the car all painted up. Do you need anything just in case as the old boy says he has a lot of good stuff. I can keep an eye out for you.
