2010-04-11 - 2010-04-11 Need a TODO List

Got some more done at the weekend. Finished off 90% of the second manifold, but I didn't manage to get any photos as I forgot to take my camera up the garage.

I also removed the spare engine block + the gearbox from the car whilst it's still on the subframe. I can then build everything up on the subframe and do a bolt check and then bolt the subframe back on the car. I need to bolt it all back in to modify the engine mounts though before I can do that. That's a complete PITA, but it needs to be done.

I need a TODO list too, so here it is:
