    Great work. I see you have also managed to squeeze a 4m BlazeCut in there nice and neatly.

    I have been reading this thread over the last week on my commute to work and will definitely be coming back as a reference when i get round to the engine in my bus. Your engineering skills and attention to detail are amazing.
