    Thank you Russ,

    It's 'complete' (they never are) except for a few details. I'll do a few things to make it more comfortable i.e., custom R dead pedal and other interior details.

    It's a lot more fun than anticipated, I look forward always to driving it.

    I feel I gained a little more power switching from oversized 11 blade fan to a 5 blade for this 2056cc 912E motor. It ran too cool anyway so this will give it some heat too.

    Mentioning 912E motor conjures up 'slow' and it definitely is not. It's quite quick, handles superbly and brakes well with Ferodo pads.

    I typically just stare at it for a minute or so every time I go into the shop!

    Installed a vintage circa '74 Prototipo. It's been part of the family since it was bought new in 1974. Love the patina.
