Project KP30: No More White Rap

The KP has finally dried out from the Speedhunters excursion so I figured I should catch up with some of the work it needs.  Firstly, the manifold was cracked so I welded it up and smoothed out all the joins.  I decided to run without the wrap this time; it looks like crap and inevitably changes colour and unwraps itself.  So, at the risk of higher underbonnet temps in traffic or something, I high-temp painted the steel bananas and re-fited them.

On the basis that it took me 3 weeks to get round to this I might get the other bits done by Christmas…ahh, I need more time to play!

    Love your KE30 – I’m in the process of doing a build with a KE20, and was wondering where you acquired your chin spoiler from? It’s early days in the build, the car should be ready for glass beading in a week or so

    Thanks in advance ^^

    Look good as always Rob, can’t believe I’ve only ever seen this once in the metal & that was soon after you first got it years ago!
