That washer bottle, wow!

Although, I did see what looked like some bad welding in there. Maybe I just didn't see it good.

Clutch slave doesn't fit? Just chop it up and weld it.

Lets see they have finished the wiring most of the plumbing, body work is done. Other than engine work, looks like they are ready to blow it apart and start painting for final reassembly

i cant imagine that after all this they plan to use the stock engine from the Sel-LI-ca. That would just be lame. These guys don't seem to cut very many corners. I expect great things.

They are Brits, they think a 3.0L gas motor is huge and grossly overpowered for street use.

Up next, they'll probably "scab" in that portal front axle from the donor truck. Bit surprised to see that under that donor DAF.

$7 a gallon gasoline.

massive taxes on large displacement engines.

I drove around a box truck that had less HP and torque than that and managed to do 75 on the highway at 18K lbs.

it will be fine.
