Yea I started it many moons ago on RMS, but due to the childishness of a lot of the members I stopped updating it not long after starting it.

I'll agree with Nick about the mid silencer delete, the difference it made was incredible, and definitely wasn't droney at all!

Awesome colour in the light!

I'll definitely keep it in mind for down the line, would like to hear one with it done first though to see what I think.

Unfortunately with the snow pretty much falling every day at the moment, progress on Monty has been slowed a bit.









I can't wait for the warmer weather to arrive so I can get some cleaning time.

When I was working away in the engine bay last week, I did notice these marks on the engine cover...





I have tried various ways to try and remove them, but nothing seems to shift them. I was wondering, I know a lot of people have painted their engine covers, but has anyone tried wrapping them in vinyl?

Thanks for reading as always.
