AN 10 - 3/4" Unf, this is where im going to run the oil into the block.



Did some more work on my front bumper today, painted it black to make it easyer to spot where i need to do some more sanding etc..

This is only going to be a plug, a glassfiber mold will be made. and then ill cast a carbon bumper in the mold!

That's amazing! Loving all the work done! Are you a welder or fitter and turner by trade?
