I reckon if they are the only two issues you get your have done bloody well. When you add up how many little details jobs you have done, getting one or two wrong is just part of the game. and to be expected.
Ditto, I’ve been doing this shit since I was 13, 57 now and still get things wrong, anyone that says they don’t is a liar, just need to look how often F1 screws the pooch, they’re arguably the best mechanics and engineers in the world with insane budgets, you’ve done well!
Thanks Ian. As the saying goes, you learn from your mistakes, it’s part of life.
Picked up the VK this morning and dropped it to the tuner. Pipes look good, heaps of clearance under the car now. Plenty of room around the steering rack which will help with engineering. It’s actually pretty quiet when it is idling, roars a little on start up but settles down to a nice sound.
Starting to have a think about putting it back together, going to see if i can put some rivnuts in along the top of the guards so i can use some fancy allen key bolts to hold them on so it looks mint
Still hasnt been tuned. Spent the weekend painting the front and rear bars. Got three cans of MX Grey from Supercheap, ended up using just over two cans and did four coats, have enough left over to do the door moulds later on. Also gave it two coats of clear. Came up pretty good for a rattle can job.
