Staying in touch with Jay, who has uploaded a couple more photos. Here we can see the engine being dropped in to confirm engine mount placement.
The Nissan Engine Start/Stop button is HUGE at about 80mm across (!) so I am going with the Audi one, which will look even nicer with a small black surround.
It looks like the car won’t be ready until mid-February now as JP have decided they need the actual vehicle to fabricate the manifold & exhaust, so it will need to be trailered all the way up to Macclesfield (about 15 miles from me) then back down to Clayhill (about one million miles from me) to be finished off. My cunning plan is to sneak over to Macc when it’s there though, & have a look at the car. Sadly excited at this prospect!
