Same here. Would love to see some pics of it. I have the unbuilt injected version, but I have heard RG's engines are kind of a pain to build. What are your impressions of it?

That ross gibson engine looks great. Did you have trouble with the kit supplied tape to be used with the fan belt. Mine wouldn't stick.

Lookin' good! Have you figured out the throttle linkage photoetched parts? I still haven't put mine on since I don't have a clear idea how they mount to the carbs.

As far as the fan and the linkage to the carbs I will probably just make my own.
I will be posting new pics soon after I get it wired.

Glad you like it.
