Too many guys complaining that the mags don't suit the model so I put the originals back.I must say she rides much softer and the steering is lighter.

Thanks Jon. I just wish I had the bucks to do the whole body over , there are some bubbles starting to appear here and there, it needs to be rewired and the engine compartment neatened up.
Would like it to look as good as the cars I have seen so far on this forum.

I met a guy at the Pietermaritzburg 'Cars in the Park' show who paints portraits of classics . He took a photo of the Rapier and from the photo he painted a portrait adding a background. He did a good job .

Thanks Jon.
I am going to try and upload from photobucket, here are some photo's of the battery in the boot and the gusset (?) I cut and re-welded to make space for the webers.They are lying at an angle still but so far there are not really any problems with running.I will make a plan later to get them up 5 degr over level , want to get a spare manifold to play with first.

Hi guys, I want to try and copy some photo's myself from photobucket, but I might block the forum forever ...By the way I saw the remarks about the old guys and their ser rapiers - you guys are lucky I am so far away , I would organise a sprint - fastbacks & H120's versus ser rapiers...we will start our cars with the crankhandles to give you's a fair start and I will take my webers off and put the zeniths back to be fair

Hi Jon,
If you move them to a different album in Photobucket the image tag link wotsit changes so the link doesn't work.
Just copy and paste the [IMG] bits into the post again.

I want to move all the images of my steering rack project to an album - but I can't be bothered to redo all the links!

If you delete or move the images then the link will stop working. Think you should re-post so we have some pics of a series rapier on here!!
