    Problem with your bush?
    I'm sure there's a cream for that. :p

    Didn’t get as far as I had planned today.

    But made a start, v band tacked on and first pipe in place.

    Then onto part 2,

    Then onto part 3, I can’t get it in so I’m going to have too put a band in as it straights up.

    some welding, it’s good enough. It’s not nice to weld.

    It’ll get wrapped. Although, it is only temporary. I don’t know why I bothered with stainless and V bands! It’ll get a proper purged and tig’d exhaust when it’s finished

    Ooh that looks tasty. Did take the steering rack apart to have it powder coated or did you just paint it?

    I rebuilt the rack and painted it but being the muppet I am, I painted it once I rebuilt it, would not recommend.
