If only I could weld.
Come on Colorado Alan, you just taught yourself.
Or Randy’s Ryan. He can weld, bend pipes, all sorts.
This is a work of art

 Good eye Pat
But I see a G and A on the pictures. There is a guy who used to  work for spondon. I think Galvin something. I think it's GIA.? I can't remember. I hate old age. I used to have  a photographic memory. Now I can't remember what I was just going to do.

That’s great news, thanks Dan and Jacob!
I was bummed when Spondon closed their doors. It’s great to hear their work continues.
Cool looking build...I wonder how the oil drains from the turbo?

Rb racing built the turbo I have.  I got it from a guy who bought it and never got got around to installing it. Paid $1500 for it. My brother and I were both bidding on it and didn't know.

I can only dream of being able to weld something that nice!
