Default All the new shiney bits now fitted to the Typhoon ready for the NEC

Finally finished fitting all the new bits to the typhoon ready for the NEC at the end of this week.

- new custom made aluminium header tank
- new custom made stainless under bonnet mirror panels
- new stainless rad top hose bend
- stainless dip stick handle
- battery cut off switch. Saves me having to remove the strut brace to disconnect the battery at the NEC
- stainless power steering fluid reservoir cover
- new bonnet catches to replace the rusty old ones

And a few other bits and bobs.

Just need to clean everything now and then it's good to go.

Looking good Rick, unfortunately we won’t get to see it at the NEC as we have had to cancel due to our poorly doggie needing to go back to the vets on Saturday.

Have a great show, and take plenty of pics.

someone's car gets a lot of TLC.

Does the brace across the engine make much difference?
Where did you get the wheel bolts from?
