oooh! Purdy. Everything is looking great.

Looking good. I agree that the stainless water pipes are very nice. I'm curious about the small alternator drive pulley, though. Has this been sized in accordance witht he wants and needs of the alternator, or is it merely an effort to slow the altenator down. I would imagine that an alternator running at half speed would free up a noticable amount of power on a car such as these, provided it spins fast enough to keep up with demand.

Dave Bean put a similarly small alternator pulley on the BDA that he built me - certainly for the reduced HP drain from the alternator. I replaced it with a full sized aluminum one (Dave gave me a steel pulley) because I had the same concern you expressed. I think those concerns are probably unfounded and I'm wishing I had gotten an aluminum one made of the same (small) diameter now, but then missing one or two HP isn't a tragedy to me.

The small alternator pulley was from Banks, smaller that I was thinking it was going to be, but there should not be too much drain on the electrics so it should be ok. I was thinking about getting a smaller lighter unit, but I'll see how it gets on. Certainly takes a lot of inertia load off the cam drive system

Unfortunately been making little progress over the last few months due to daughters and son inlaw buying houses that need dads help..😏
But back on the Europa now. Trying to fit the roll cage which is a bit challenging. Exhaust fitted.... Adjusted and refitted. Plus a few other parts. I'll post some pics at the weekend with more details. Doesn't help now that work has dragged me away during the week as well.
Once I have fitted the cage (well the main hoop and brackets) progress should start be quicker...I am hoping...

yes the body is in primer and just needs final flatting before finishing. but getting all the bits to fit before I sent it off for paint.
thanks on the wheels, a bit of bling!

progressing at last. Basic roll cage fitted. This will be extended to a full cage but this one is FIA approved, so will do for getting the car on the road.

Nice roll bar. Did you get it from Richard?
