71Veloce – 12 Hour Difference

What an amazing difference 12 hours can make. Despite a couple of initial setbacks, we managed to make some tangible progress.

Tonight, motor in and starts. To be honest, I thought we were just swinging the motor to make sure it turns over without resistance, but when it fired into life on the third tap. elation!!! What a relief, purrs like a kitten and hasnt even been tuned properly yet! Dash in, but not secured. Wiring good enough for car to start without any major catastrophes, thats worth money in the bank! Wheels swopped, paint still drying!

In other news, stepnose motor removed from donor car.

Good day at the office! #sleepytime #kaput
