Actually it is a Caterham 7, but looks very much like a Lotus Seven. More encompassing pictures soon...

Gordon is a beer. The real questions are, is it in the bottle, out of the bottle, or "filtered"?
We have Gordon Biersch restaurants out here...

Nope, not for big rigs...
Machined the horns, hardware and filter parts. The red rings are "plastic" snap on items to hold the debris screens on, actually machined from aluminum, (what else?). SMS HiDef C/F on the mount plate.
Still working on the filter part of the air box...

Thought I'd include the "big" ruler in a shot...

And I'm happy to machine a cylinder.... duh! :D
Looks great, as expected. When I grow up (I'll grow old, but never grow up) I want to be like you :D

Thanks,

Goes over the intake horn assembly, (shown partially inserted in the top picture). Mostly machined aluminum except for the threaded studs, cloth element and internal mesh. Most of the raw parts were posted with the air horns earlier. Custom decals too...

The boots for the wires are machined aluminum with vinyl tubing. The bottom one is fully assembled and painted, the one above is the assembled parts. The rest of the parts are above them, the one different part is the boot for the coil.

Almost finished distributor, ready for installation.

Coil assembly, mounted and wired into the system.

Other side view of mounted distributor. Still much to do in the engine compartment (and other places).

The actual ignition wire is from an old remote controlled Countach model I had in the 70's. Saving the old stuff is not the problem, finding it when you want it is...
