Well finally done. Its took around 12 months from start to finish, but well chuffed with the way its turned out.
Just a few bits to get yet but it shouldnt get in the way of an Mot.
Big thanks to everyone on here with their help and advice, the knowledge on here is invaluable for a first timer Z9 build.
There's an ever so slight ticking around the no4 exhaust area, not sure what it might be yet but im going to let everything bed in first before i get to nosey.
Thanks,,, Paul.

you have really gone the extra mile with that one, stunning top job

you should be very pleased with all your hard work and you have made a few pounds along the way on your investment, its nice to know that you can do these and still be in profit at the end

well done Sir!

Wouldn't panic about the "ticking".... get a few miles under your belt, re-torque & check clearances then see how she is :wink:

That is superb, excellent job you have done there. Love the wire wheels and the twin disc arrangement makes it look really balanced.... :luv :luv
