The work is as good as the kit price, no...beyond the cost. Thanx for the updates!

Well, it's been awhile since I did anything on this.   That's because I had a snafu on it.  While CA'ing the throttle plates onto the intake runners, I managed to get a fuel line stuck between the two.  Of course, I didn't notice it until it was too late.  So I decided to invert the engine in a shallow puddle of acetone to debond the offending pieces.  To keep the acetone from evaporating, I used as jar on it's side and closed the lid to let it sit overnite.  When I came back to it the next morning, the entire engine had been debonded and was back to pieces.  At that point, I put it aside.

But there is a good side to this mistake.  I had been having trouble getting all of the exhaust pipes lined up correctly with the engine assembled.  But now that it is in pieces, I was able to slowly build up each sub-assembly. I CA'd one pipe onto the head, then bent/shaped the next pipe to it and the collector.  So the four exhaust sub-assmblies are done.

My next blunder was on one of the sets of exhaust pipes.  While trying to get two of the pipes bent into position, they broke.  I did manage to get all of the parts into position and CA'd.  Next I will use some JB Weld to fill in the gaps.  Then sand and paint

Ahh, the wonderful journey of the re-do. Glad to hear that the parts de-bonded, great work on the pipes and the cracks don't look too overwhelmingly large so it should hopefully be a straightforward repair. Looking forward to seeing the return to the workshop for this one.
