I bet that splitter didn't agree with the snow much!
I'm really liking your tinted lights, I've got some tinted side repeaters in my toolbox doing nothing if you want them to match?

No i don't know how the splitter survived. mostly due to sliding into things Laughing

I will let you know about the side repeaters as i still havent made my mind up about the tints on the headlights

Jetted to 120 main jets and pull much better now. Feels quick for a 1.0L, all the power is high up the rev range. But at the end of the day it is still only a 1.0L Very Happy I hope it is running about standard polo GT power (75bhp). I want to get it rolling roaded.

Looks awesome

How did you fuel the carbs
Facet or bike pump? Dropping a 16v in mine soon but unsure on fuelling the bike carbs

I am running a facet low pressure pump and a inline regulator.
I found that the standard pump was to powerfull and was overpowering the regulator.
I first had a t piece but found the carbs were not getting enough fuel.
