      The water pump housing with all the pulleys, bracket & hose exits.
      If any nosy chap takes out any hose afterwards, he'll find the holes in the hose exits there, hee, hee...
      Note on the side pics, the alignment of the pulleys to receive the belt afterwards, not to clear on the pics, but they are aligned, believe me!
      However, the water pump housing isn't ready yet...

    Before you guys get too excited......bear in mind that Mario is just polishing up his skills for his Citroen project.... ! With any kind of luck it should be there soon. So hang on to your shorts it's going to be quite a ride.

    When you you think you've seen it all and wiped up all the drool...the Shadow & McGurk have teamed up to build a no holds barred 1/6 scratch built 1/8 Citroen 12 *********. Can't say anymore....the Shadow just told me to shut my big mouth.

    Whoa!! Looks like this is going to be a bumpy ride. I'd better tighten up my seat belt and grab the dash if I'm going to be able to hold on for this ride. If this is the level we're going for, I've got a lot of work ahead of me. You set the bar, Mario and I'll do my best to keep up. I'm really up for this one.

    Jeff.....I'm excited about it too. I've been wanting to get this project going for years and other things kept pushing it to the back burner. Well buddy, Mario is as cranked about it as I am so the time has come.
    Concept to compliance, it will be designed and built from the ground up...No rules, No time frame,....we are going to do it our way. It's going to be a huge car and guaranteed to raise more than a few eyebrows. Mario will be working on some of the sub-assemblies while I work on others.....even though we are thousands of miles apart, I have no doubt the final assembly will be a snap. Maximum detail is the key word on this puppy. I think you'll like it.

    I think I'm going to like it too. Can you give any good clues as to what you guys will be building?

    Wow, a three way build would be great. Guido, don't forget to take a lot of pictures of what you do.

    Me. I'm doing the Lincoln to demonstrate the principles Mario is teaching us. The point will be for me to learn the techniques Mario is using rather than how to build a Citroen. That way, I'll be able to build anything I want using the same principles.
