Hi Colin, I was waiting for your opinion. Thank you. Waht's the meaning of "to be off the shed"? I'm always interested in what some phrase mean in other languages. In example coach Trapattoni once he was training Irish football team, to say that things don't go always the right way proferred an italian dictum: "it's not always sunday"! :grin:

Today i drlled the carb vacuum piston at 2.5mm, raised the needdles 1.5mm at the backside and 1mm to the front. jetted 115f and 118r as per the HRC manual. The yoshi cams are inside. I'm now working on the rads welding nc30 upper radiator supports to the frame. It seems to be the never ending story!

Well Pietro, when i said "i'm off to the shed" i meant that you had shamed me into getting on with my VF and i was going outside to my shed ( workshop) to get on with it! :)

In Italy we say "Il giardino del vicino è sempre più verde" That translated sounds like "The neighbour's garden is always more green" to say that when we look at what other people have it always seems better than it actually is. Go on with your job. I wish I could have your skill with composites. I didn't joke when I said I'm waiting to see your vf400f finished. I'm really curious and appreciate the project.
