Are you bothered about firing order? if so I think 4 & 3 need swapping over. (although I have been known to be wrong....  Only about 80% of the time though :-))

I got told mine wouldn't run by Andy lol,  cos I'd cocked up with 2 & 3 if I remember rightly.

I thought if I'm going the whole hog and wiring it up then I might as well get it about right and looking at your decent start I think the same applies.

Looks like you've swapped 1&2

I did it like this and no one shouted "Colin you're still a plank"  at me lol.

Hi Ash,

Looking good so far, I've looked at this kit a few times so will be following this one if that's ok...

Follow away matey!

Instructions call for x7 red gloss paint but I only have this in a tiny pot and no AB so its going to be Tamiya bright red or Italian red from their spray cans, with £1 shop clear cote.

Hi Gary.. I cant use the AB for the moment but I did use it on my Ducati 916.. Came out pretty good (there's a post on here somewhere) would send you the link but I'm on my phone and it wont do I.

I discovered the Tamiya spray cans and they are great! Just more expensive than the tiny pot things.

That's looking great Ash. Did the drivers seat come with the kit?
