Wow.!! Now that looks proper nice Danny. Love it.!!! It really transforms your engine bay mate and compliments the Blue theme a treat. Superb.!!!!

Mine is still sitting wrapped up on the garage shelf.!! I was gonna fit it but as I have B112 booked in with Tickover in a few weeks to check the head bolts and valves after the head work they done in Jan I will prob just get them to put it on then whike they have the other cover off. Yours really looks stunning mate. I was tempted by that one too but with so many and the choice to custom my head was banging deciding which one to go for :lol:

Great work on the Pinto Danny !!!

Mate if you are on facebook his page is 842 Rockercovers.

Otherwise here's a link to his website - www.jrcast.com

His Pinto covers are stunning as you can see from the one Danny got. Superb quality. He does a couple of different ones for the Pinto and you can choose from a few colours then add whatever wordings you want within reason. As you will see he does loads of them for all engines. Check his page out. They really are stunning'

Heres the one that I got from him for my Pinto. Hope this helps mate.

Yeah they look awesome. I can't warrant the €300 euros at the moment so I'll have to remove and paint the current one for now until after Xmas lol

Well after a busy year (buying a house, having to do loads of work to said house, work, and apparently some disease...??) I thought my radiator was leaking so bought another shiny new one from CoolExperts.

Had some help from my assistants - my sister just likes being in pictures, and my stepdad likes an excuse to work on an old car :lol:

Drained the rad, took it out and installed the new one....

Foolishly I had forgotten that when I do work on the car I need to factor in 'Sods Law' and therefore my pipes didn't fit the new rad!

Swift decision to remove the new rad, put the old one back in and refill with fresh coolant and it appears that the rad isn't leaking anymore either - problem solved (sort of) so I went to the pub :beer:
