    Actually, it looks pretty good as is. I'd polish the chrome, grease the tuning screws, instal new heads and call it good.

    I am just assuming it's a 10x9. Doesn't currently have a bottom head on it. Will be stripping it all down today so will have a measure

    It's getting the full treatment. Has the makings of a fantastic, early WLX

    G'day Kevin,
    Looking good so far, and looking forward to seeing the rest all finished up.

    You have a knack of finding the right kits, and getting great results.
    More power to you...
