    Oh hell no, these are photos my mechanic >>

    emailed me during the course of the rebuild...... Absolute best customer service I have EVER experienced... EVER. Of course, I don't know what the quality of work is like first hand, yet. Apart from him fitting a starter motor for me not long ago - but that all seemed good.But judging by the amount of Z's in his workshop and the many years racing and engineering experience he tells me about - I'm expecting the work to be pretty spot on...
    Of course, I'll let everyone know what it's like when I get her back... =) :-Z
