I've always wanted an ef9, and when Gudgen's car came up for sale it tied in nicely with the other project I've got going...a vtec mini
The plan at this stage is to use the ef9 as a test-bed for the fire-breathing engine which will eventually go in the mini, and then build another engine for the ef9. The mini will see the occasional track duty/sprint/hillclimb, while the ef9 carries out daily duties (not much really, work vehicles take care of most of that!).
A few pictures from tonight's effort-gotta love the day 1 enthusiasm!
As it arrived in Alexandra, almost yellow with pollen:
And after a good wash, getting dark by this stage:
Am a big fan of doing things right, hence masking the b18c block for painting:
B18b block mocked up in the frame for the mini:
Wheels which are going on the mini, should look pretty good with a set of big Wilwoods in behind
Thanks for stopping by, questions/comments always welcome.
