Temp runs at 75 C and when pulling at 80kmh up long hill he will clime to 90, but drops down again after the hill.

All gauges are normal when running fast for long times.

Very happy with the airflow via the gills and into the engine compartment.

Busy with all the small things to get MeFusco done,

making sure all is well for the Road worthy test, when all of a sudden it hit me, .....No seat belts. :shock: :shock:

Now this is going to be an issue as we did not ensure the old mounting points where preserved.

So got me a set of seat belts, and now making brackets to fit them,

Will have to peal back some of the upholstery to get fixing points or to make new ones. :roll:

So bear with us as we get this done as there will be no RWC without them,,,,,,, :(
